Country home close to Montreal and Sherbrooke

Close to ski hills and lakes! A charming, luminous country house on 2 acres of woods, with a private beach on an ecological lake, close to all winter and summer sports; ideal in any season. All the pleasures of nature at only 1 h 15 minutes from Montreal or 30 minutes from Sherbrooke. Perfect for commuting or as a writing retreat.
Well-appointed contemporary two-and-a-half storey country house with four bedrooms and 2 and a half baths.
Its large windows open onto its two acres of wooded grounds, and its large verandah overlooks the yard and flower garden. Its tasteful interior with its wood-panelled walls and floors is designed to coddle you and make you feel at home. For a romantic touch, lounge in its year-round sunroom, or relax in the master bedroom with its own whirlpool tub and view of the forest and the sunset. Or make yourself at home with friends and family around the fieldstone fireplace in the living room.
You will have all the comfort and convenience of urban living (5 household appliances; cable TV and wirless internet; sound system) while being surrounded by the peace and tranquillity of nature. In summertime, enjoy the swimming and fishing pond across the road, the private beach on the ecological lake 5 minutes' walk from the house; noit to mention canoeing, pétanque, tennis, fishing, a gas barbeque, a double hammock, a variety of friendly birds, an evening bullfrog chorus...
The winter season offers cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right outside the door, or you can clear a skating rink on the pond, or head for one of the many ski hills that abound in the region.
Local walking paths for admiring autumn colours or the miracles of spring are but a few minute's walk down the road, and hundreds of kilometres of other walking and bicycle paths are accessible within a short drive.
Calm and relaxation guaranteed.
