Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a family of five who moved to Stratford from Toronto in 2010. After living in big cities from Oslo to Accra to NYC, we needed a break from the noise and smell of the big city. At times, we miss the city but we do love the benefits of a small place including easy access to beaches.

Why the Owner Chose Stratford, ON, Canada:
Stratford provides visitors an oasis from the big city while offering many of the comforts of a big city - great restaurants, music and live theatre. Play and Chill, a five minute stroll to the action, is cozy like a cottage while offering a jacuzzi tub, expresso machine, smart t.v, gas stove, gas fireplace, air conditioning, BBQ and many other comforts. You can either shut the door and stay inside, play in the city or head out mountain biking or to the beach. Even better, take advantage of all three.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Parking is easy, the house is large enough to accommodate a full family, the location is perfect - close to downtown, the conservation area, the Shakespearan Gardens, a river for fishing and a sports field and running track.
