Duplex w backyard – 2 closed rooms - Montreal– Aug 1 - 1300$CAD

Charming furnished lower duplex in Little Italy with back yard, vegetable garden, great kitchen. Two steps from Jean-Talon market, public transportation, and all amenities. TWO ROOMS for rent: bedroom and separate office. Open plan kitchen living room. Rent is all-included: heating, electricity, landline, Internet.

About me, your absentee roommate: I am a woman, Anglophone, trilingual, 40 yrs old, anthropologist, writer. There is a 3rd closed room that is my bedroom, which I will be paying for as storage space, while I complete my postdoctoral fellowship in England. The rent is discounted on account of this. The sublease is from Aug 1 2019 to May 1 2020 (negotiable: could start earlier than Aug 1, or as late as Sept 1).

This apartment and its furnishing are the perfect set-up for a visiting academic. The space is also ideal for a couple, and/or the office can be made into a bedroom to accommodate a child.

FURNITURE AND AMENITIES: The second room currently includes two desks, shelf space, printer, scanner, keyboards, mice, speakers, transcription pedal, and my reference library from my PhD in anthropology. The bedroom includes a set of drawers, closet, night-table and a four-poster bed. The kitchen is bright and fully equipped for cooking, baking, preserves. The furniture is of quality. There is a washing-machine between April and December (not for 3 months in the winter). There is a clothesline/ no dryer. The backyard includes a deck, vegetable garden, perennial garden, barbecue. The furniture and décor in the office and bedroom can be changed – feel free to inquire. No painting or new holes in the walls allowed. This apartment is not available completely unfurnished.

The duplex is on a side-street in a lively pedestrian neighbourhood, with multiple quality restaurants, terrasses, pubs, grocery shops, farmers' market, pharmacy, laundromat, buses, subway, all within a couple of blocks. Approx 20-30 min public transport to all 4 universities (20 min if driving or cycling). Street parking near home. Bike storage.

The duplex was built in 1910; the bathroom is recently renovated, yet the rest of the apartment was last rebuilt in the 1950s – fabulous character, quirks/low counters, shabby chic. Most other apartments in the neighborhood have been renovated and rent for twice the price.

The landlords are a friendly couple, helpful, bilingual, and live upstairs.

No smoking in the house, but smoking on the deck is fine.

Feel free to write with any questions in English, French, Spanish.
