Comfy, bright, new annex to home

Ideal for one person, available from Aug/Sept 2020 for an indefinite period. Annex in back of one-storey home near Little Italy, overlooking quiet yard, with private entrance. 5min walk to buses, incl those replacing OTrain direct to Carleton, 10-15 mins to bus or train to Ottawa U/downtown. 20mins walk to shopping on Wellington St, plus good corner stores nearby. Driveway parking available. Near Dows Lake (skate to Carleton!), Experimental Farm & Arboretum (30min walk across to Carleton, bike trails).
Fully furnished, with linens. Living room with sofa & desk (no tv provided but outlet exists), bedroom with double bed. Bookshelves, two wardrobes. Own large bathroom. Own back entrance. Generous kitchen-dining area shared with owner. Sliding doors shut off annex from kitchen, another door provides complete privacy from rest of house. Direct access to back porch & yard. Large windows, bright and pleasant. Washer, dryer & clotheslines indoors and out. Utilities & internet access included.
A quiet corner close to some lively streets, with friendly neighbours and easygoing landlady who keeps up on cultural events. It's important that we get along but also maintain privacy as we'd be partly sharing the house. For serious enquiries, I can connect you with previous tenants for comments on their experience.

About Me
I have been a Spanish language instructor at Carleton University (now retired), and taught English at a university in Barcelona for many years. I have spent a large part of my life in Spain, mostly in or near Barcelona, go back when I can and plan to move back there. I have travelled in Europe, especially around Spain, and a bit in other parts of the world. I am interested in cultural events and keep up with what is happening in Ottawa, particularly films, dance, music, and literary events. If you are seriously interested in the rental, I can connect you with previous tenants for their feedback. These past school years, the annex was rented to a visiting Italian instructor, a teacher from Spain, and a Cdn grad student. We lived quite separately but sometimes ate together, and shared info on events we sometimes attended together. We often went grocery shopping together in my car. I'm flexible- the main thing is that we get along and cooperate as needed. I may be away in winter term 2021 and the main house may be rented, or you might have the place to yourself and have to look after a few plants and front entrance shovelling- nothing more.
