About the room
We are looking for two housemates for a fully furnished and equipped three-story, three-bedroom Plateau townhouse that is shared with one other housemates. The move-in date is flexible, starting as early as November 15 and as late as January 1, 2021. The other housemate is an early 30's professional, who lives on the first floor (at street level). The home environment is quiet, smoke-free, and pet-free and perfect for working from home! The monthly rent + utilities price of $850 for the master bedroom ($800 if moving in by December 1, 2020) and $650 for the smaller bedroom ($600 if moving in by December 1, 2020). Please note that, at both of these rates, the rent is being subsidized by the primary leasee, in order to ensure the rooms are filled by the New Year. It is also possible for one person or a couple to rent the entire upstairs for $1,300 a month.
Note on COVID-19: The two housemates who currently live in the house (one is moving out, one is staying) have been respecting Covid-19 guidelines; and the housemate who is staying intends to continue doing so. We are happy to answer any questions that potential housemates may have about COVID measures – or anything else!
You will enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful furnished and tastefully decorated townhouse in one of the best neighborhoods of Montreal! Each bedroom has a home office nook to facilitate working from home (was originally conceived with graduate students in mind, but now works for most people, given the increase in remote working).
The third floor (available) houses the master bedroom (images 1-2), master bathroom with large bathtub (image 3), and a separate home office/second bedroom with twin day bed (images 4-6). The master bedroom includes an office nook and a futon that opens up to accommodate one or two guests. The entire house, including the available rooms on the third floor, is fully furnished. The kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room, back deck, and private enclosed-yard (with vegetable garden!) are on the second floor and are shared with one housemate (images 7-13).
We describe the different spaces in detail below.
Kindly note: NO SMOKERS, NO PETS
ABOUT THE UPSTAIRS (THIRD FLOOR) (AVAILABLE)
The upstairs houses the master bedroom(images 1-2), master bathroom (image 3), and office/guest bedroom (images 4-6). The master bedroom has a queen size bed, desk nook with glass desk and leather swivel desk chair, and a futon that pulls out into a double bed. Adjacent to the master bedroom is the private master bathroom. The smaller bedroom/office is on the same floor and shares the master bathroom.

The middle floor of the house includes a beautiful modern kitchen with breakfast bar, combined living room/dining room, and a beautifully finished wood deck with table and chairs (again, all completely furnished). There is also a beautiful private garden/yard in the back (i.e. fully enclosed with tasteful wooden picket fence that prevents others from seeing in). The deck is decked out with beautiful flowers on all sides! There is a small laundry room with washer and dryer on the landing in between the two flights of stairs that lead to the downstairs suite (images 7-13).
ABOUT THE DOWNSTAIRS (OCCUPIED) (FIRST FLOOR/STREET LEVEL)
The first floor of the home houses the downstairs master bedroom suite (see last two images). The suite has its own full bathroom with modern fixtures. There is a queen bed with end tables and lamps. The suite also has its own private sitting area with a loveseat, two arm chairs, and a small coffee table. There is also a desk nook with a large black wooden desk, a padded leather swivel chair, and floor lamp for extra light. The suite is two flights of stairs below the main floor (where the kitchen, dining, and living areas are located). To access the suite, you walk down one flight of stairs and then turn 180 degrees to continue walking down another flight of stairs. At the bottom of the steps, there is an opening that leads to the suite.
ABOUT THE LOCATION:
The house is located on a lovely residential street with renovated historic townhouses and just one block from the Prince Arthur pedestrian-only street (see photos in ad):
Below is a description of the neighborhood taken from the Tourism Montreal site.
"For many travelers who reminisce about their trip to Montreal, memories of tree lined streets, spiral staircases and colorful houses begin to surface. There is no neighborhood more synonymous with these images than 'The Plateau.'
The Plateau is the Greenwich Village of Montreal. With the highest concentration of artists in any Canadian district, the bohemian aura of this neighborhood is visually palpable: stunning urban art, relaxed cafe terraces and fashionably clad individuals."
