A 2-story single-family cottage built in 1922 on a stone and mortar foundation, as well as granite blocks. The building has a basement with a clear height of more than 1.83 meters. The property has been well maintained over the years


The exterior cladding is brick, the roof is made of ancestral sheet metal, which was installed in 2018, and the windows are made of PVC and wood. The property is connected to the electrical network.

A 200 amp electrical input, with circuit breakers, allows the distribution of electricity in the residence. The electrical system was completely (± 98%) redone in 2008. The main heating system is a hot water system heated by a dual-energy furnace, powered by electricity and oil. Hot water circulates through radiators and also through a radiant floor system in the kitchen and the powder room/laundry room on the ground floor.

A wood fireplace with a wind tunnel in the basement also contributes to the heating of the building.

The ground floor consists of a kitchen, a dining room, a living room, a shower room/laundry room and a vestibule. The walls are plasterboard. The ceilings are mostly made of wooden slats, with the exception of the kitchen ceiling, which is plasterboard. Floor coverings are mostly hardwood, with the exception of those in the kitchen and the shower room/laundry room, which are made of concrete. These were installed in 2016.

The kitchen was modernized in 2016. Kitchen cabinets are made of melamine with laminated countertops and stainless steel. Numerous woodwork is found in the property, which gives it an ancestral cachet


Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom. These rooms are separated by a corridor. There is a thermostat in 3 of the bedrooms and in the bathroom. The walls are plasterboard or wooden slats, while the ceilings are all wooden slats. The floor coverings are made of wood, with the exception of the one in the bathroom which is made of soft floor covering.

The bathroom contains a bath-shower, a toilet and a sink.

The basement, with a clear height of more than 1.83 meters, is undeveloped. The property has a closed gallery at the back, as well as a wood shed.

A treated wood gallery and a balcony of approximately 4.57 meters x 1.98 meters are located at the front of the property.

Site improvements include lawn, a crushed stone driveway, a 10' x 12' lumber shed, 56" x 67" shed, a wood fence, a hedge, and mature trees.

Residential and commercial zoned.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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!
