We are looking for a mature, responsible, non-smoking couple to remove snow, water plants and look after our home while we are away from December 06, 2022 to April 03, 2023.
We think a mature couple would be more suitable because we need our driveway kept completely clear of snow so that we can get access to our car stored in the garage as soon as we return.
The house is 3000 ft on 3 floors plus basement. It is located centrally in the Glebe surrounded by the world famous Rideau Canal, and close to Ottawa's many museums, art galleries and theatres including the National Arts Centre.
Basement: Storage and workshop with sink, small rec room with a sofa bed, TV, plus bathroom with shower.
Main floor: laundry room, a large eat in kitchen, living, dining and TV rooms (large flat screen TV with Bell PVR + Bell wireless internet). The living room has a pull out double bed.
Second floor: full bathroom with separate shower and tub, separate powder room, and 3 bedrooms each with a single bed, 2 of the bedrooms are used as offices (one of which is too cluttered to be of use).
Third floor: one large bedroom with king size bed and bathroom with shower.
There will be parking room for one car in the driveway while we are away.
Note that the pictures do not show that the house, carpets and blinds are very old and not in the best condition. In particular there are 4 stained glass doors and 2 windows that are really very old and delicate, also all of the window blinds are old and fragile.
