Quebec City condo description

As one of our guests once said about this condo, 'charming' is an understatement! Very cozy, spacious and nicely furnished loft, about 1,000 sq.ft. within the city walls. Fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer. Lots of character with stone and brick walls, original pine floors, cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, on third and top floor of building. Queen size sofa bed in living room. Bedroom on mezzanine with queen size bed, walk-in closet, computer desk and chair. Cable and hi-speed wireless Internet. This natural light-filled corner unit with direct view on the Laurentians, Esplanade Park and the National Assembly is only steps away from the Plains of Abraham and close to everything.

Comme le disait une cliente : 'charmant', c'est bien peu dire pour décrire ce ravissant appartement. Magnifique et spacieux appartement d'environ 90 mètres carrés (1 000 pieds carrés) sur deux étages, au cachet authentique, à l’intérieur des murs du Vieux-Québec. Cuisine tout équipée, lave-linge et sèche-linge. Murs de pierre et de brique, planchers en pin d’origine, plafond cathédrale, poutres apparentes sous les combles, au troisième et dernier étage de l'immeuble. Divan-lit grande taille au salon. Chambre en mezzanine avec grand lit, walk-in, table et fauteuil d’ordinateur. Câble et Internet sans fil. Cette unité en coin lumineuse offre une vue sur les Laurentides, le parc de l’Esplanade et l’Assemblée nationale. Elle est située à quelques pas des Plaines d’Abraham et à proximité de tout.

Ce bâtiment patrimonial a été construit en 1834-1835 pour un riche marchand du nom de Henry Atkinson. Le parement extérieur est en grès de Sillery-Cap-Rouge, matériau employé pour ériger une partie des fortifications de la ville de Québec ainsi que les murs de la Citadelle et qui a servi à la réfection de la porte Saint-Jean en 1938.

                  There is a lot to do in Québec City: outdoor ice skating at Place d'Youville or on the newly opened ice rink on the Plains of Abraham, also a nice place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and rollerskating.

Other attractions and amenities include: outdoor public swimming pool, waterpark, bicycle rental, horse-drawn carriages (at your doorstep); the Image Mill, boat cruises, etc. Enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many cycle paths in and around Québec City. Even take your bicycle on the Québec-Lévis ferry and follow the path along the St. Lawrence River to capture the most spectacular views of Québec, stop by the marina to quench your thirst and have lunch or pick a place for picnic and enjoy the view. Montmorency Falls and Île d'Orléans are two must-see places. For more information, you should visit the Tourist Bureau, located at 12 rue Ste-Anne, right across from Château Frontenac. The Tourist Bureau (Centre Infotouriste) is open every day from 9:00 to 5:00 except December 25 and January 1.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: This magnificent property was purchased four years ago. Acquiring it was nothing short of a dream come true. The condo is located in a heritage building that dates back to 1834-35, when it was built for a wealthy businessman by the name of Henry Atkinson. The exterior is made of the Sillery-Cap-Rouge sandstone that now forms part of the Québec fortifications and the walls of the Citadel and that was used to restore the Saint-Jean Gate in 1938.

                  Why the Owner Chose Quebec City:
                  The property is very comfortable, charming and the location couldn't be better. Experiencing Québec City and the surroundings is really worth the trip. I look forward to welcoming you here. Until then, please check out my Reviews section for the numerous positive comments received from guests over the last four years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Being just steps to everything while enjoying the privacy of this property overlooking L'Esplanade Park is something you will truly value. And who wouldn't like waking up to the sound of horses' hooves on the cobblestone, or seeing a groundhog during a morning walk on the Plains of Abraham just around the corner! In addition, those who like to stay connected while getting a breath of fresh air will be happy to know that there are Wi-Fi hot spots for free Internet access in multiple sectors of the Plains of Abraham.
