Bright spacious centrally-located loft with fantastic view

Last Updated: Jun. 17th, 2024

I'm a McGill University professor going on my first sabbatical for one academic year. I have a lovely one-bedroom loft condo apartment in a fantastic area of town (Gay Village, near Berri-UQAM metro). I'm looking for a responsible person who will take good care of my place while I am away.

It's fully furnished and I have a standing desk with Mac computer and printer. The view from the desk is fantastic for working at home.

I have a community garden 3 minutes walk from my apartment. I grow vegetables there during the summer and often work on my laptop from a picnic table there under the shade of a tree. It's a nice peaceful spot in the heart of the city. I also have a BBQ grill on wheels that can be taken there or to another nearby park (there are many small neighbourhood parks in the area).

Ste-Catherine street is pedestrianized in the summer and is full of life with restaurant and bar terraces, buskers, and street art.

There are several supermarkets in walking distance (less than 5 minutes walk), two metro stations, and the main bus station.

It is not ideal for a car but a car is not needed. I have two bikes that can be used (one for comuting, the other a racer) and there are plenty of bixi stations (bike share) nearby.

During the summer there are fireworks at the Jacques Cartier bridge twice per week and the view from the apartment is amazing!
