Luxurious and modern, 3-level 1400 ft² townhouse designed by local architect-owner. Easy walk, run or ride to Ottawa's downtown and all the festival venues. After a good snowfall, guests may strap on their cross-country skis and head up to Gatineau Park to enjoy the vast network of groomed trails. Running during the non-snow season is a pleasure; I have personal 5k, 10.8k, 11.5k and 15.2 looped runs to share for runners of all abilities.
Radiant floor heating throughout, abundant natural lighting, cross-ventilation, natural materials, composting on-site. Air conditioning provided on all three levels. Bright open floor plan with plenty of operable windows. Floors with maple hardwood and ceramic tiles.
Fully equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, dinnerware and cleaning supplies. If you like to cook please indicate any specialty cookware you may need as I may have items helpful to your culinary vision. Fresh herbs throughout the garden. Couch and chairs on the main floor can be converted into beds, sleeping 4 extra persons. Flatscreen television and free internet access provided.
Entrance on main floor with powder room, living/dining/kitchen area, with access to back deck and gas BBQ. On the top floor large master bedroom with king bed and chairbed, walk-in-closet and a large 5-piece bathroom. At the lower level, room with a king bed/2 twin beds and 1 chairbed. The lower floor also has a smaller 3-piece bathroom with large walk-in shower and integrated washer and condensing dryer. An ironing board and iron are also available.
The interior is smoke-free and fresh linens are supplied once per stay. Bookshelves are stocked with French and English novels, cookbooks and magazines.
On-site parking is limited to 2 cars in the carport. Free street parking is available except for overnight parking during the winter due to snow removal.
The many pleasurable stays I experienced around the world at VRBO properties convinced me to open my own home to fellow travelers.
The neighbourhood is a gem. Not only is it the only neighbourhood directly on the shores of the Ottawa River within the five inter-city bridges, but the people who live here are varied in their occupations, incomes and backgrounds. There are many businesses as well as houses, a university, a church, a daycare centre and an elementary school so the streets are friendly.
