All-inclusive rental in modernized downtown 1860 Halifax house

All utilities, internet, TV, parking, fully furnished and outfitted household - walk in with your suitcases. Owners live next door to facilitate easy move-in and adjustment to Halifax winters. Previous reviews may be seen on AirBnB listing 'Downtown Halifax House'. This is a two and a half story semi-detached house recently renovated with sound-proofing into a modern open-area design but with heritage features such as original brick-work and three-floor stair banister. The second floor includes the main bedroom with queen bed and large double sliding doors to make it an open or private space. Additionally there is the main bath, laundry, and den with patio door to the deck overlooking the back garden. The third floor is a delightful open beam loft-type bedroom with its own on-suite toilet and shower. If a fifth person is to stay, an additional single bed can be installed in the den with en-suite access to the main bathroom or in the 3rd floor bedroom.

Located just below just Citadel Hill in Halifax, this is an opportunity to live in one of the hottest up and coming neighbourhoods in Canada according to Huff Post. Only a short walk to hospitals, Dal, water front, Irving ship yard and a block or two to new pubs, restaurants, french bakery .

About Me
I am a retired Canadian Air Force pilot, MSc engineer by training, and former assistant professor at the Royal Military College of Canada. My wife, Leslie, a nurse, and I, both University of Alberta grads, have lived in six provinces, lived and travelled widely in Europe and the US and hiked and camped in Nunavut and Greenland. We moved to Nova Scotia in 2010 and renovated an old house here. Three years ago, we bought the derelict house attached to ours and have just finished renovating and restoring it for rental. It is presently rented each year from May - Oct and we are hoping to rent it to sabbatical travellers for Nov - May, dates in May being flexible.
