A New Place To Live As of May 31, 2022

John Maskell, 613-341-7172

As of 31 May, 2022 I am looking for a new place to live.

I need to move as soon as possible so immediate availability is desirable, but not essential.

I am a single, senior, self-employed professional who works on line and via Zoom from home.

My bare essentials are:

  1. I am looking for 2 rooms, with private 4pc bathroom and access to kitchen privileges; something such as a small house, in-house suite or apartment, including:.
    1. A spacious, but not huge bedroom – the second room is for office and work space;
    1. Excellent office and studio space for creating “on-line” audio/video material and zoom time;
    1. High Speed Internet access is essential.
  • Theoretically, my new community can be anywhere in Canada.  Initially, I’m looking in the environs of the following areas of rural Ontario:
    • Brockville
    • Gananoque
    • S or SW Ottawa, access via 416 (Manotick, Osgoode, Merrickville,  Kemptville, possibly Smiths Falls)
    • Preferably  I’d like to be close to urban facilities, but not right in an urban community.
  • I’d like to live in a natural setting with landscape and water view; having gardens close by is a pleasant extra, which I’d be happy to help out with.  I am very capable of, and would be willing to do, light maintenance work.
  • Single or double garage, attached or detached, and/or adequate storage space will be a welcome extra. 

A medium or long-term house-sitting or cottage-sitting opportunity for absentee owners could be quite an acceptable arrangement.

If you know of any such opportunities, I would appreciate your reference.
