House in Rawdon, Canada

 Texte français plus bas.
Retired as a High School Principal along with my wife Marie Marthe retired as a secretary at a nearby geriatric care center, we are anxiously looking forward to our next house exchange.
Our warm and welcoming house is located on a quiet lakeside street within the municipality of Rawdon. A unique cultural characteristic of Rawdon is the bilingual, English and French nature of its 7000 inhabitants.  Being located in the foothills of the beautiful Laurentian mountains and only an hour drive away form Montreal has made Rawdon a popular Summer vacation destination.
 
Our house is only 30 meters away from Rawdon Municipal Lake via a small wooded trail leading down to the water.  The 3 km long lake offers a municipal beach which is perfect for swimming, kayaking and canoeing (no motorboats allowed).  The Rawdon Golf Course is only a 5 minute walk away. In addition Rawdon boasts several parks and green spaces.
Our two-storey house built in the 1940's and now completely renovated sits on a property of 30,000 sq feet and includes large mature trees.  Groceries, restaurants and shopping are easily reached  5 minute by car or a leisurely 20 minute walk.
Our house has is fully equipped kitchen, living room with fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, enclosed sun porch and balcony. Our backyard patio, surrounded by flowers and trees offers a wonderful place to relax.  Our retired neighbours maintain equally attractive and quiet properties.
 
Distance:
Town of Joliette: only 25 km away offers the Fesival de Lanaudiere, Canada largest classical music festival in July and early August.
Montreal: large cosmopolitan city of 3 million people is only an hour away by car or by bus.
Quebec City: historic capital of French Canada is 3 hours away by car.
