Manotick / Greely Real Estate Listings & Manotick / Greely Profile
Loved for its large lots – often encompassing acreage – and generously-sized homes, Manotick has several desirable neighbourhoods. Manotick is known for its lifestyle properties and many of the area homes boast large floor plans centred around indoor/outdoor and amenity-driven living. With many golf courses located here and the Rideau River travelling through Manotick, it is not uncommon to find beautiful homes with golf course and water views. There are also many stunning waterfront homes offering the benefits of a cottage lifestyle only 35 minutes from downtown Ottawa.
Rideau Forest is one of the neighbourhoods with the highest concentration of luxury homes. With 2-acre-plus lots, this community is characterized by substantial custom estate homes that embody all design styles. Many feature amenities, including beautiful pools, outdoor kitchens, indoor golf simulators, wine cellars and elevators. Fabulously treed or wooded backyards are also common. Situated well back from the wide streets with ample privacy from neighbouring properties, these homes offer beautiful estate living.
Those looking for waterfront might instead opt to live in one of the riverside homes along River Road or in Manotick Long Island, a choice neighbourhood where some of the homes are set along the Rideau River. Both areas offer boating and fantastic water views. Many of the waterfront homes in these locales have docks and pools, offering a distinct waterfront lifestyle.
Manotick Village or “The Village,” as it is commonly known, offers a variety of local shops and restaurants. From dining at Babbos Cucina Italiana and the Black Dog Bistro to picking up blooms at Mill Street Florist or running errands at The Mews of Manotick shopping plaza, The Village makes local living convenient. On its periphery, local museum, Watson’s Mill, is a grist and flour mill hailing from the 1860s. Manotick also offers quick access to the 416 Highway and is close to Barrhaven and Riverside South, where larger commercial stores are found.
Greely is adjacent to Manotick. Both Manotick and Greely offer golfing. The Rideau View Golf Club, Falcon Ridge Golf Club and Emerald Links Golf and Country Club are all fine options. Many of the gorgeous high-end homes in Greely overlook the Emerald Links club. There are also amazing lakefront properties in Greely, including fantastic homes along Southwood Lake and Cedar Lake among others.
The Greely Community Association is a volunteer group of local residents who work to support the community. Some Greely neighbourhoods have community centres with pools and tennis courts, toward the maintenance of which residents pay an annual association fee. There are also numerous parks in Greely, including the Greely Loop, a 10.7-kilometre (6.6-mile) walking and bike path that connects various Greely neighborhoods.
We love Greely and Manotick for the true lifestyle properties they offer. These neighbourhoods are unique in that you can live in estate homes on acreage, enjoy a community feel and take advantage of cottage-like amenities.
