9 Magnificent Reasons to Choose Mahogany in Manotick
#1. The Village of Manotick
The historic village of Manotick has maintained its charm and character with traditional Ontario architecture of stone and brick homes, fine millwork, and lush green gardens. Manotick Village is a vibrant community featuring local artisan shops, restaurants, boutiques, an aquatic club and curling club, and much more. Visit Manotick’s Main Street, in the heart of the village, and tour the historic Watson’s Mill in Dickenson Square—the Mill is older than Canada itself!
#2. Year-round Festivals in the Village
Dickenson Days comes around every year on the first weekend of June and celebrates the founder of Manotick, Moss Kent Dickenson. It’s a full weekend featuring a parade, fireworks, live music, great food, and more. The Taste of Manotick closes out the summer in August when local businesses line Main Street to showcase their wares. Stop by for free samples and tastings, live music, and entertainment. And on December 2, Manotick village transforms into a picturesque winter wonderland for Olde Fashioned Christmas!
#3. The Best Manotick Restaurants
Voted Ottawa's favourite restaurant in 2016 by Faces Magazine, Black Dog Bistro is where Manotick goes for good food. Located in the heart of the village, Black Dog Bistro features great food and a cozy atmosphere that keeps guests coming back. Those seeking an authentic pub experience can head over to The Mill Tavern for fish and chips and a pint—just two of the great dining options in Manotick, all within walking distance of Mahogany.
#4. Shopping Local
Every year as summer and fall roll around, local farms set up their produce stands in the Manotick area. Enjoy freshly grown and freshly picked fruit and vegetables that are ripe and in season. 7 days a week from June to August Shouldice Berry Farm roadside stand is in operation in Manotick on Main Street, Prince of Wales and Bankfield, Mitch Owens and Limebank, and Swan on the Rideau.
#5. Manotick Walk
A direct link between Manotick Village and Minto Mahogany, the Manotick Walk is a beautifully landscaped path that is perfect for walkers and cyclists. The 10-minute journey brings you into the heart of the village and all of its amenities. Enjoy an evening stroll into town for a nightcap or leisurely meal at any one of Manotick’s restaurants. Manotick Walk is Mahogany's little secret, a ribbon weaving through a natural setting connecting our community with village life.
#6. Mahogany Community Design
The quiet streetscapes are designed around natural elements like Mahogany Creek with three strategically placed community parks—two of which are already complete. Your extra deep 100’ plus lot will be your family’s haven for all good things outdoors.
#7. A Natural and Sustainable Environment
Indigenous species of mature trees including a large Bur Oak, estimated to be more than a hundred years old, were maintained and incorporated as features in Mahogany’s green spaces and parks. Many plants and trees were saved and planted to provide privacy for homeowners while protecting the natural habitats of Manotick’s flora and wildlife. A historic stand of White Spruce, White Cedar, and Red Pine creates a Farmer’s Hedgerow along Bridgeport Avenue and provides a natural habitat for birds and other wildlife, while also acting to prevent soil erosion.
#8. Contemporary Home Design With Village Charm
When you walk inside a Mahogany home, immediately you'll notice the sweeping smooth finished 9ft ceilings, the hardwood flooring throughout the main floor, the granite countertops in the kitchen, and an impressive fireplace in the great room—all included and exclusive features in a Mahogany home.
These open floor plans and contemporary exteriors are on the leading edge of style and functionality. The on-site Design Centre and resident Design Consultant are there from the beginning with a wide array of options and finishes to help you build a home that's right for you and your family. Mahogany brings modern living to the village of Manotick. All home designs are exclusive to Mahogany and can't be found anywhere else in the city!
