This is a great house! it's right on the main road, but they have double glazed windows, so it wasn't noisy at all.
there are two huge bedrooms in the main house, with queen beds, then a double in a smaller room. there is only one full and one half bathroom, but worked out fine.
there is a small deck out the back of the house with a barbeque, off the generously proportioned dining room. the garden is enormous and has resident squirrels and birds, who come to eat at the feeder outside the living room window.
the living room is at the front of the house, with lots of light, a TV and a pellet stove, also very large, and there is comfortable seating for 7 people. a deck at the front of the house has comfortable furniture for lounging and watching the world go by.
the kitchen is enormous and not terribly efficient, but who cares!? it has a lovely tin ceiling, a huge refrigerator/freezer, plenty of space for food, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, and a bose CD player with a great selection of music.
the attached granny flat (apartment above the garage) has a queen sized bed in the main bedroom, and a smaller bunk-bed room, which also leads into the smaller double bedroom in the main house, if you are renting the whole thing. this apartment has a good sized bathroom with shower/toilet and a separate kitchen & living area with a futon. also a big tv. the apartment is accessed by a separate set of stairs off the side door hallway. both of these share a laundry room, with big machines.
everything was organized and clean. they have a great separation system for recycling. there were cleaning and laundry supplies, cloth napkins, pot holders, dish towels, plenty of bed linens and also towels. also food basics, so check the house before buying anything!
2 very good supermarkets to choose from, the organic Co-op is just down the street. the house has central heating. only parking for one large SUV or truck, possibly 2 small cars, unless you use the garage, but there's plenty of parking in the area, just not outside the house. Beautiful old houses in the neighborhood, a very short walk to town & shops, very convenient location!
I cannot say enough about this lovely house that has been thoughtfully furnished by the wonderful owners.
