Recently renovated home close to park, lakes, walking trails

Anticipating sabbatical from 1 Jul 2019 - 30 Jun 2020, we are looking for academics/professionals/retirees to rent our home for the year.

As this is our home, we cannot rent longer than our scheduled sabbatical (July 2019-June 2020) but will have some flexibility around start/end dates.

As is, this rental is not suitable for young children (open stairwell, high deck). Would prefer to rent fully furnished but willing to be flexible on this.

Rent includes water but not other utilities. Lawn service is included. For an additional monthly fee, we can also arrange for snow removal -- so you can enjoy the freedom of condo-style living but in the comfort of a house.

You are also welcome to arrange snow removal yourself during your stay -- let the weather decide whether it is a service you need/want. Snow amounts can vary tremendously from year to year.

If it is a snowy year and you decide to remove snow yourself, we have a snowblower you can use. Removal is required only on the property; the city removes snow from the sidewalk.

No pets, no smoking, please.

We were limited to 10 photos to post so couldn't show everything. Happy to share additional photos upon request. Some of the posted pictures may seem a bit dark because we were trying to avoid having the photos whited out by the sun.

Our smoke-free, pet-free, carpet-free split-level home was renovated in 2014, with all new appliances; hardwood floors throughout. Well insulated.

With a sun-filled open concept design, this home offers a spacious kitchen that opens to a rear deck; living room with large-screen TV and propane fireplace; 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds; an office with sit-stand desk; one full bathroom upstairs and another downstairs; a home gym equipped with free weights and bench, elliptical-stepper, and spin bike; basement recreation room with game table, large-screen TV, and wood-burning stove. Double-car garage.

Our home is located in the Dartmouth neighbourhood of the Halifax Regional Municipality, within a short commute to Dalhousie University, St. Mary's University, Nova Scotia Community college and near to major bus routes. The commute to Dalhousie University is about 15-20 mins by car, 25-30 minutes by bicycle, and 40 minutes by bus (no transfers required). The commute is even shorter to St. Mary's, NSCC, or NSCAD.

We are in an excellent school district, with nearby schools at levels K-12.

We are located 1 block away from the trail system around Lake Banook and access to its rowing/paddling clubs, and only a few blocks away from beautiful Shubie park -- the jewel of Dartmouth.

Fantastic neighbourhood for people who enjoy walking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, rowing, paddling.

Located in the beautiful province of Nova Scotia, there is so much for you to see, do, and explore while you are here!
