Findlay Creek Village in the south end of Ottawa opened in 2002 and remains a popular destination for home buyers. The master-planned community features two builders — Tartan Homes and Tamarack Homes — and a total of 14 Findlay Creek Village model homes.
Both Tartan and Tamarack have a mix of two-storey singles and townhome models. Although Tamarack’s models are closed (new ones are coming soon), many of them are still available to view as a 3D virtual tour. And pandemic safety protocols may restrict access to Tartan models. Check with the builder before going. Here’s what you’ll see when you visit the Findlay Creek Village model homes.
