We are going abroad for a year and renting out our furnished two-storey, 2-bedroom + office, home in Pointe-Claire village. You'll feel like you're in the country with all the trees around you, the functional fireplace and the wood features of this classic home.
The home is very bright and sunny, with lots of large windows, wood floors and high ceilings. There are two large bedrooms (one with king bed / one with double bed plus desk and bookshelf - this is our 8 year old's room so comes with children's toys and books if you like) and one office with desk and bookshelf, all on the 2nd floor. The main floor has an open living room/dining room and separate kitchen with a pantry room. There is a closed-in porch at the entrance which can be used as storage for bikes, skis etc or as a summer solarium. There is also a basement with washer/dryer. We are currently using a part of the basement for storage but can also arrange some space to share. There is also a large corner desk set-up in the basement by a window; a nice and quiet little work nook.
There is a large in-ground saltwater pool and good size backyard with patio. There is a driveway for two cars, or playing basketball.
The home is equipped with central air conditioning, hot water + electric heating, with heated floor in the bathroom.
We are located in a quaint village just west of the city of Montreal, with shops, cafes and restaurants just a 10 min walk away. You can take advantage of kayaking, sailing and windsurfing in the summer on Lac St-Louise, just 600 m down our street. In the winter, you can enjoy cross-country skiing at the Golf course just one street over from us, along with sledding hills and skating rinks all in walking distance. This a very family friendly neighbourhood with many great schools, parks, and bike paths.
Pointe-Claire village is approximately 25 mins drive to downtown Montreal (McGill, Concordia, UQAM, etc), along the nearby HWY 20, or a 40 mins train ride, or easy bus/metro ride with the bus stop at the end of the street (6 mins walk).
We are flexible with dates. The main criteria for us is finding responsible and respectful people to enjoy this home while we are away.
BONUS: We will offer a discount of $100/month off the rent if you like houseplants and can care for them while living here (weekly care instructions provided). There are four tall floor plants and some tabletop potted plants. They are happily settled in here with all the sunlight, and are easy care.
