About our home

(la version française se trouve ci-dessous)

Our house is lovely, modern construction with lots of space and light. The main floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen (with high-end gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, cappuccino machine, etc) a main-floor bathroom and laundry room, and family room. On the second floor, there is the master bedroom with king-sized bed, walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom, two bedrooms (each with queen beds), a shared bathroom, and an office. There are four bathrooms throughout the house. Downstairs is a rec room, theatre-style TV system, storage and an office with a computer. Attached to the house is a large garage (car and bikes available). The house is equipped with central heating and air conditioning, alarm system, two fireplaces, sound system with radio and CD, several televisions (with cable and DVD), computer, wireless internet, and lots of books and CDs in French and English. An attached garage has room for a car and several bicycles.

The backyard is large and sunny with multiple flowerbeds, trees, patio, raised deck, gazebo, gas barbecue and outdoor seating for six. Even a hot tub!

We live in a lovely, quiet, residential neighbourhood in Gatineau, (Aylmer sector). It is located close to bike paths, links to autoroutes, and a 20-minute walk to downtown shopping. Half a dozen golf courses are within a 10-minute drive, others within a 5-minute walk. Nearby are restaurants, pubs, shops and services. Ottawa, the nation’s capital city, is only about a 15-minute drive away and offers a wide variety of activities, museums and festivals all year long.

We are ideally located to explore the rest of the province of Quebec, eastern Canada and USA. It is only 2 hours to Montreal and Mont-Tremblant, 5 hours to Quebec (to the east) or Toronto (to the west) not far from Niagara Falls. A bit further to New York City!


Notre maison est jolie, de construction modern, bien éclairée et spacieuse. Au rez de chaussée se trouvent le salon, la salle à dîner, la cuisine (avec cuisinière à gaz, lave-vaisselle, micro-onde, appareil à cappuccino, etc.) et coin-déjeûner, une salle de séjour, salle de lessive et toilette. À l’étage se trouvent une chambre à coucher principale (avec un très grand lit, grandes garde-robes et sa salle de bain complète) ainsi que deux autres chambres à coucher (avec des grands lits), une seconde salle de bain complète et un bureau. Il y a 4 salles de bain dans toute la maison. Au sous-sol, se trouvent une salle de télé théâtre et un bureau avec ordinateur. Bien équipée, la maison offre une chauffage ou climatisation central, système d’alarme, deux foyers, plusieurs téléviseurs (avec cable et/ou dvd), ordinateur, internet haute-vitesse (wi-fi), système stéréophonique radio-cd et bibliothèque bien équipée de livres français et anglais. Un garage relié à la maison abrite la voiture et les bicyclettes.

Le jardin arrière est spacieux et bien ensoleillé. Paysagé de multiples coins fleuris, de beaux arbres adultes, une terrasse surélevée ombragée par un gazebo moderne, un BBQ à gaz, un table à diner extérieure et même un spa!

Notre demeure est située dans la region de l’Outaouais dans un quartier résidentiel paisible de la ville de Gatineau (secteur Aylmer) à quelques minutes des autoroutes et des pistes cyclables. Une randonnée facile de 20 minutes à pied presque sans circulation vous mènera à des grandes surfaces. Une demi-douzaine de terrains de golf publics en moins de 10 minutes de conduit, même un à cinq minutes de marche. Non pas loin vous trouverez des restos, des pubs, des magasins et des services. À moins de 15 minutes du centre-ville d’Ottawa, la capitale de notre pays, vous pourrez y visiter musées et galerie d’art, des festivals de toutes sortes toute l’année.

Notre ville est située à la frontière des provinces de l’Ontario et du Québec, à 2 heures de Montréal ou de Mont Tremblant, à 5 heures de la ville de Québec vers l’est ou Toronto vers l’ouest, tout près des chutes Niagara et la ville de New York.
