Kingsmere Real Estate Listings and Information
Kingsmere is a community just on the edge of the villages of Chelsea and Old Chelsea. It is within Gatineau Park and the National Capital Region. The Farm, the official residence of the Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons, is located in the community, as are Mackenzie King Estate and Kingsmere Lake.
Kingsmere used to be the country estate of William Lyon Mackenzie King, the tenth Prime Minister of Canada. King often ran the country from Kingsmere and entertained many guests including the Duke of Windsor and Winston Churchill. Upon his death, King donated the estate to the Canadian Government.
Originally a cottage community, it is now one of the most sought-after residential areas in the Outaouais with beautiful waterfront homes on the shores of Kingsmere Lake and other country homes scattered amongst the hills.
