House in Whitby, Canada

We live in a spacious home, in a quiet, mature neighbourhood east of Toronto. The house is bright and comfortable, with air conditioning, wireless internet access, high definition TV and a treadmill.

The ground floor has an open concept living-dining space and a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a family room, with a wood burning fireplace and a walkout to the deck and garden, perfect for enjoying outdoor meals. We have a gas barbecue, a trampoline and a basketball net. A powder room and laundry completes the main floor.

The second floor contains 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom. The master bedroom with a king size bed has an en suite full bathroom. The other two bedrooms have twin size beds with plenty of toys, games and books for the kids.

We have two adult bikes and two kids bikes available for you to use, as well as a variety of outside toys for kids.

The neighbourhood offers many amenities within walking distance (groceries, pharmacy, indoor swimming pool, gym and library) and Lake Ontario is only a few kilometers away, with beaches and trails for biking, running and hiking. In the winter, we have skiing (downhill and cross-country), snowboarding, tubing and skating all nearby.

Whitby is a very easy commute to Toronto, either by car or by taking the commuter train into the downtown core (the station is a 5 minute drive away and the trains run every 15 minutes), where there are many diverse neighbourhoods to explore, along with restaurants and shops. There are world famous museums, art galleries, live theatre, zoos, amusement parks, as well as major league sports (hockey, basketball, baseball, soccer).

Niagara Fall is about an easy two hour drive from Whitby along major highways. Also, driving north into the heart of Ontario will bring you to Algonquin Park, a provincial park with fantastic wilderness camping, hiking, and canoeing.
