Our home is a nice, well decorated, 1100 sq feet / approx 104 sq Meter, clean bungalow - not luxurious but well maintained, on a quiet street, with green space nearby leading to Nose Hill (good hiking). Nice yard in summer, generally with flowers and vegetable garden, brick patio with fire pit and deck off the Kitchen.
We are 20 minutes drive from Downtown Calgary and about same distance from major shopping centres but we are walking distance from 2-3 major grocery store and a bus interchange leading to downtown Calgary. Calgary is about 1 to 1.5 hour drive to Banff and 2 hours to Lake Louise. Roads are generally clear (none or little snow in the winter), with some exceptions of course.
Main floor has main living room/dining room, 3 rooms (1 bedroom, 1 office, 1 TV room) - wood floor throughout; main bath is fairly basic with floor tile and around bath and shower area.
Basement has a small apartment, which we use as spare bedroom, 2nd bathroom and TV room. It also has a kitchen - we don't use it - but is fully equipped with Fridge and Stove. If a non-simultaneous exchange is desired, we (my husband and I) could stay in that apartment for about 1 month, but we would prefer simultaneous exchange. It also has another bedroom and a furnace, storage area / laundry room with good washing macine and dryer.
Every bedroom holds a comfortable queen size bed.
