Lovely country home in a quiet village

Stanbridge East is in the province of Quebec. The Little House is a unique combination of old and new. The original portion of the house was built in 1890 and features a kitchen with original tin ceiling and hardwood floors. The new part of the house, built in 2015, features a bright living room with 20-foot cathedral ceiling. The first floor of the house is an open concept dining room/kitchen/living room, with a small bathroom. The second floor is where you will find the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom (free standing shower and vintage, claw foot bathtub) and a small guestroom ideal for children. There is a fully furnished lower level with 2 bedrooms, laundry room, living room, and a full bathroom.

There are several outdoor decks and porches to enjoy the quiet countryside. There are mature flower gardens and places to sit under hundred year old oaks and maples.

We are a pet-friendly home! Our cat Smudge is approx. 20 years old and loves sleep in the sun, cuddle on the couch and sit outside. Louie is a frisky teenage cat who enjoys a good scratch and a long snooze. We also have a puppy, but she'll be vacationing somewhere else during an exchange.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Pierre Elliot Trudeau - 91.5 KM

The house is located in a historic, small town in the Eastern Townships. We are a quick 1-hour drive away from Montreal, 2 hours away from Sherbrooke, and 15 minutes away from the Vermont/Burlington U.S. border. Our area features excellent vineyards, micro brasseries, biking routes, fishing or canoeing spots and hiking all within a 45-minute drive. Within walking distance from the house is an Auberge with a bistro restaurant with a tasty menu, a convenience store, potteries, tennis court, park, museum and bakeries. The town is very friendly and is a nice mix of English and French residents.

Here are a few quick links to the town website and some local attractions:
