Whether you’re just starting out with your family, ready to downsize to a smaller home as you enter your golden years, or looking to purchase an investment property, there is a wide variety of houses for sale in Kanata, one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Ottawa.

Known as being the home of the Ottawa Senators, Kanata is much more than just a hockey centre. The high-tech industry has made Kanata a diverse community for all types of families. With a population of approximately 116,000 in the greater Kanata area, Kanata retains the small town feel of a close community while still offering easy access to education, healthcare, tech centres, recreational facilities, and other convenient urban amenities.

Types of Homes in Kanata

Kanata was once part of the Township of March until it was incorporated as a city in 1978. Although there are very old homes in parts of the community, most houses in the community were built after the 1970s. In some of the area subdivisions, you’ll find newer homes with new ones being built every year. Across the diverse neighbourhoods, you’ll see these types of properties:

Existing Homes

  • Apartment condos – These are individually owned units in a building but there is a common entrance for all occupants rather than private access to units.
  • Townhouse condos – Townhouse condos are similar to apartment condos, both are managed by a condominium corporation. However, each townhouse condo has its own separate main entrance while apartment condos share the same main entrance.
  • Townhouses and semi-detached houses – A shared wall between houses is a common feature of this type of housing. However, townhouses are usually built in rows so you may share a wall on either side of the building. On the other hand, a semi-detached is a single-family home with one shared wall with another home.
