About Paige Purcell
I'm a huge fan of both travel and interior design. It seems natural to combine the two and open the doors of my Ottawa home to the like-minded! Although I've travelled a lot and lived abroad in Japan, India and Philippines, I consider Ottawa home and think Canada is absolutely one of the most beautiful countries in the world (but maybe second to Iceland!). I hope you enjoy Ottawa as much as I do. Enjoy your stay!
Paige Purcell purchased this House in 2004
Why Paige Purcell chose Lower Town
When I first moved to Ottawa from Toronto (and Vancouver before that) I fell in love with the Byward Market area. I love that the neighbourhood is so centrally located, that you can live without a car and that you can shop for groceries on a daily basis since you're likely to walk through the market every day. When I walked into this house for the first time it just felt right, felt like home, felt warm. Its a piece of Ottawa history, located on a quiet street on the edge of an area of the city that is full of restaurants, cafes, pubs and nightclubs. The area is completely safe but not yet overly gentrified. I think its perfect!
What makes this House unique
Ottawa is a "big enough" city and this house is ideally situated. There is no shortage of things to do nearby, the Byward Market is interesting and full of activity year round and although centrally located, it is SO easy to enjoy Canada's great outdoors from the house as well. The Rideau canal is very close by and a short trip over the bridge takes you to Gatineau park where you can hike, swim, mountain bike, downhill or cross country ski.

Very convenient location in a quiet neighbourhood close to the National Gallery and the Byward Market. The property was very clean when we arrived. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. The place felt quite spacious.
Paige was prompt and helpful when I had inquiries.
I will definitely come back and I have already recommended this place to my friends for when they travel to Ottawa.
