Owners’ comments

Country living with city amenities close by. 

Location

Situated just minutes from the recreational mecca of Gatineau Park and a 10-15 minute drive from Ottawa and Gatineau, this one-acre property, which backs onto greenbelt in south Chelsea, combines the convenience of proximity to urban activities with the privacy and comforts of rural living. Vehicle traffic is light, as Solitude Road is circular and has just one access road (onto Mine Road). 

Design features

With four bedrooms upstairs and flex room on the main floor, this large two-storey brick home provides an abundance of living space. A sun-filled family room with windows on three sides and a wood-burning fireplace on each of the main and second floors provide bright, comfortable and inviting living areas. A dining room with two sets of French doors and three sets of windows offers the option of an enclosed, quiet environment or one that is open and inviting. The kitchen is open to a dining nook which accesses a concrete patio. The full-sized basement offers the opportunity for finishing in keeping with the new homeowner's own design and construction preferences.

Did you know?

Whether you purchase a property from a homeowner or from a broker, the steps involved and the legal implications are the same. You’ll see that buying without an intermediary has many advantages!

Can I afford to buy this property?

Prior to visiting a property, you should verify whether you have the means to purchase it by meeting with a financial advisor. Don’t forget, you must have enough money to cover both a down payment and the expenses related to the transaction (notary, property transfer duties, etc.).

Is this property right for me?

Consult the listing to determine whether the property features meet your needs. If necessary, communicate with the homeowner to obtain additional information. You may then make an appointment with the homeowner for a visit and prepare a list of questions to ask him.

Do I need to conduct a property inspection?

Verifying the condition of the property prior to purchasing it is a good precaution to take. In order to do so, you can hire a home inspector. He will intervene at a later date. Be prepared to add the inspection conditions to the offer to purchase.

How much should I offer?

Easily familiarize yourself with the market by visiting DuProprio.com and by verifying the price that comparable properties in the area have sold for. You’ll get a better idea of how much you should offer. You can also hire a licensed appraiser.

How do I proceed with an offer to purchase?

Have a discussion with the homeowner in order to come to an agreement on the price, the conditions of the sale and the possession date. You can then complete the offer to purchase form.

Thanks to DuProprio, the seller benefits from a legal assistance service and can ask their legal questions in order to properly complete the document.

The sale will be sealed with a notary, but until then, nothing prevents you from consulting a notary to write-up an offer to purchase. Once the deed of sale is drafted, you will be the new homeowner!
