Comfortable home in a leafy urban neighbourhood of Ottawa

Character detached home in a leafy urban neighbourhood of Ottawa. Located in trendy Wellington Village literally steps from fine food stores, boutiques, yoga studios, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, and public transit, this house has a walkability score of 100. It is on a quiet residential street, equidistant from Carleton University and the University of Ottawa (a 15-min drive or a 30-min bike ride from each); a 10-minute walk from the Ottawa River with its kilometers of groomed hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails; and a two-minute drive from the bridge connecting Ontario to the Gatineau Hills and nature parks of Quebec. On the ground floor, there is a living room with gas fireplace, a dining room, a large kitchen, a 3-piece bathroom, a family room/office and a laundry/utility closet. The upper level has the master bedroom with a king-sized bed, two smaller bedrooms each with queen-sized beds, and a 4-piece bathroom. The basement has a comfortable guest room with twin beds (that can be joined into a California king), and a 4-piece ensuite bathroom. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished, with radiant heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. It has beautiful perennial gardens, a large grapevine-covered deck with gas barbecue, and a fully-fenced back yard with patio.

About Me
My husband Richard and I are retirees from long careers in international development for non-governmental organizations and the UN. We are currently based in Ottawa, Canada. We have lived, worked and/or traveled in over 80 countries. Most recently, we spent 16 years in Italy, where we restored a 500-year-old farmhouse and developed and managed the property as a successful guest house. We have sons in Los Angeles and (soon to be) New Zealand. We are seeking home-like settings where we can settle in and just be, in Los Angeles, Victoria BC, and the South Island of New Zealand. We have extensive experience as home exchangers, and as house and pet sitters. We are clean, quiet and responsible. In North America, we travel with our well-behaved miniature schnauzer, and we welcome the opportunity to care for other dogs. Richard is a compulsive perennial gardener. I am an amateur photographer and scribe. We both love to walk around cities, we enjoy cooking, and we need peace and quiet.
