Post Ottawa | Sandy Hill

Ottawa Tours:

HintonburgSandy Hill North





Sandy Hill
Ottawa, Ontario

There is a great variety of housing in this neighbourhood, ranging from the mid 1800s to to early 1900's.
Stone houses, rowhouses, early 20C apartments, mansions--lots of things to like. Read the sign below for more.

This tour shows Sandy Hill north of Laurier, I'll save the University of Ottawa and the rest of this neighbourhood for another tour.

Awesome shots. Makes me miss Ottawa, Sandy Hill is such a great neighbourhood. The housing vernacular is a bit different from southern Ontario.

Great shots, as usual. My grandfather's family lived in a house at Walter and Nicholas just south of Laurier.

Nice pictures. I see a lot of that typical Ontario architecture, but a lot of it looks unfamiliar as well.

Greet set of photos of my neighborhood! If you look of many of the photos carefully you'll notice many of them are either embassy's or the ambassador's official residence.

Yup...miss my old hood. I used to play at the Sandy Hill Tennis Center, if you can call a couple of courts in a park that. Def drank at that Royal Oak. I always loved that part of town, and Ottawa U is cool, with it's Gothic mixed with Brutalism campus. And what's cool is how close of a walk downstown and Rideau center is!!! The only drawback of this area would be the promiximity to all that nastiness on Rideau/Montreal drive.

Cheers everyone!

flar, your photos are always works of art!
Anyway, beautiful neighbourhoods!
I believe I spy a few embassies! Some of them are hard to spot, but I learned how from living in Washington, DC.
I love Ottawa.

Fuckin eh, great neighbourhood.



I was robbed in front of here, but I guess that's what I got for giving money to a halfway house kid for pot and hearing "I'll be right back!" as he ran off. You doofus, Stanz.

Lovely. The rows, the bricks, the residential area has architectural variations. Well done!
