Owners’ comments

On the mountainside, this large country house, a former general store converted into an inn, has a whole history and character.

Completely restored in 1994, it began its new life as a bed and breakfast and later became an Inn that delighted thousands of visitors as well as myself. Extended and renovated in 1999-2000, in 2008, and in 2018, it has been residential since 2010.

The first floor houses 4 bedrooms, one of which has a balcony, a bathroom with a laundry chute, a toilet, bedding, a linen room, and the master bedroom comprises 2 rooms, a shower, and a washbasin.

On the ground floor, a large living room, with a wet bar, a bathroom (toilet-sink), a huge fully glazed dining room with a breathtaking view of our beautiful mountains, a stove and wood shed, built-in solid wood storage units, and two kitchens with propane gas inlet for a stove, hob and outdoor outlet for the BBQ, two outlets for electric stoves, 4 hoods, 3 places for fridges, 2 double sinks, 2 entries for dishwashers, 2 islands, lots of cupboards, a laundry chute and a central vacuum.)

Downstairs, cellar side, a vault, a storage room including electrical panels, 60 gal water heater, washer-dryer entrances, a Caddy wood furnace, and a large wood shed with exterior door. On the semi-basement side, towards the back, with a small patio and a great view overlooking a private entrance on one level, there is a small apartment comprising a kitchenette, central vacuum, a small living room/dinette, a full bathroom with a shower, a small bedroom and a large bedroom with double bath and sink.

The land is approximately 155 by 200 feet, on levels, semi-landscaped, inhabited by mature trees, an apple tree, and a lilac.

This house with a large terrace is ideal for a young family wanting to live in the country and make ends meet with rental income, a couple of young retirees dreaming of running an inn, a B&B or an Airbnb, or a bigenerational family. It would also be perfect for a professional wishing to have his office at home (doctor, accountant, notary, lawyer, etc ...), a teleworker, a health center, a country table, a producer-processor of local products with a shop that would have a storefront, an artist-painter, a writer, in short, the possibilities are endless, the air is pure and country life is simply magical... and at a much lower cost!

Located at the crossroads: Victoriaville (35 km), Thetford-Mines (40 km), Ham-Nord (10 km), Disraéli (25 km), Princeville (30 km), Plessisville (40 km), St-Ferdinand (Lac William, 25 km), Quebec (1h30), Montreal (2hrs). On the border of Chaudière-Appalaches and the Center of Quebec and neighbor of Eastern Townships.

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

Need the form?

Documents to download

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
