Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

This mid-century brick bungalow was given a 21-Century second story recently, creating multiple spaces with different looks. Downstairs the rooms are an eclectic open concept peppered with antiques; upstairs is modern, with a large library landing, family rec room (ping-pong and a disco ball!), panoramic sitting area, four teen bedrooms, bathroom, and a master suite with office/dressing room/washroom. We designed the addition to be eco-friendly, with green roof areas and solar panels.
We have two patio areas in our yard; the east side patio under a grape arbor is lovely for morning coffee, and west patio has a built-in bench and a gas BBQ for dining outside.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

It is an easy walk (10 minutes) to downtown Guelph, where there is an independent cinema, bookstore, pubs, interesting food, and many small shops. There are trails along the two rivers of Guelph which connect several parks and green spaces. Also downtown along one trail is the River Run Centre, our performing arts space which showcases tours of ballet, music, and other performances. Guelph has a Basilica on its highest point, overlooking the old town and sitting even higher than the University.
