Shared Heritage house 2 blocks from University of Alberta

We are a family of four (Mum (lawyer), Dad (accountant) and two boys 12 and 13). We will be largely overseas from autumn 2021 until autumn 2024. We will need to return to Edmonton approximately 3 times per year, for a few weeks at a time, the rest of the time, we will be away and the house will be yours. We are looking for a responsible single or couple to share our home for part or all of this time.

Our 4 bedroom, 2300sf character home is within walking distance of most amenities: grocery, restaurants, community centre, farmers market, library, chemist, etc. Nothing is more than a few blocks away. Walk to the River Valley Parks and Ravine Trail system, Fitness centre, indoor and outdoor public swimming pools, skating rinks, playgrounds, schools, tennis club and the City Arts Centre.

The home is two blocks from the University of Alberta, U of A hospital, LRT, major bus routes and Cross Cancer Institute.

The upper floor consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. These would be maintained for our family when we are in Edmonton.

You would have free run of the main floor: living room, dining room, gourmet kitchen and bathroom.

You would have exclusive use of the lower level (350sf ) lounge/bedroom with an ensuite full bathroom, and shared access to the laundry room and mechanical room. There is also a small office on the lower level that is currently used by us, but could be vacated for your use, if required.

Both front and back yards are professionally landscaped. The super-sunny south-facing backyard has a beautiful patio and lots of mature fruit trees/bushes (apple, cherry, raspberry, grapes, honeyberry) as well as a perennial herb garden and lavender patch. A double detached garage sits at the back near the laneway.

We are easygoing, great cooks, and have a warm, welcoming home.

This situation is ideally suited to a (single or couple) grad student, PhD/postdoc, sabbatica, secondment or residency.

Shared areas of the home are fully furnished.

Your exlusive areas can be fully, partly, or un-furnished, as you require.
