Pet-friendly 2-3 bdrm Newly Renovated on Great Sydney Mines St. in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia

If you are a quiet, non-smoking family looking for a safe, affordable, beautifully renovated place to call home, please take a look at our single family home on Carey Street in Sydney Mines.

House available for October 1st. Rent is 850 per month or $395 bi-weekly. The house has new (2009) stainless steel fridge, stove, and microwave, and we will add a washer and dryer if you don't have your own. You pay your own heat and lights, and water.

We basically rebuilt the home in 2009 - new insulation, wallboard, floors, ceilings, paint, appliances, electrical, plumbing, and a completely gutted bathroom built with fresh, clean new decor. The safety and comfort of our furture tenants were top of mind when we renovated so the electrical has all the code requirements (GFI plugs, smoke detectors, certified installer & NSPI permits plus inspection.)

We also took great care to insulate extensively including the basement ceiling to make the floors on the first level warmer and to reduce heating costs. We replaced old windows, and used premium quality paints. The basement is an old, dark, grubby, concrete block basement that is only good for the washer and dryer and maybe storage of a few items. It is not developed.

The home has 2 bedrooms and the bathroom upstairs. The 3rd bedroom (which could be used as a great dining room, a family room, or an office) is on the main level and it has a door to the small ground level deck. The eat-in kitchen has refinished cupboards, a brand new counter top and sink, and new stainless steel fridge and stove.

The bathroom is small, but very well laid out to maximize the use of space for storage and functionality. The vanity, sink, toilet, and tub/shower surround were all brand new in 2009 and the room is a very serene place to start your morning.

There is a large, bright living room with a beautiful decor, and a great view over the lawn and streetscape. The front entrance has a decent sized closet, a spacious entry, and lovely wide craftsman style stairs. A deck facing onto Carey Street provides a place for BBQ and enjoying the lovely neighbourhood views.

The home has almost 100% new laminate floors durable enough to withstand normal wear and tear from children or reasonably sized pets. The home sits on a double-sized lot that would be ideal for children of any age, and Carey Street is quiet enough that street hockey or basketball games could go for hours without interruption.

We realize that most people get paid bi-weekly now, so if you would rather have a bi-weekly rent payment, we would be happy to arrange a payment based on 24 or 26 payments per year.

A photo collection from 2009 is loaded on Flickr to provide additional photos. Please note that some updates have been done since these photos were taken. Deck is revived in front, foyer is now a beautiful neutral with white trim, etc.

If you are interested, we will require:

1) An application to rent
2) References (1 employment to verify employment, and 2 references from prior landlords or other character references)
3) A successful credit check

If you are interested, we recommend you:
check out the interior photos at Flickr address below,
take a drive by the areas (Carey and View Streets, Sydney Mines) to determine if the house/location work for you. Note: we focused on the interior first, and we are planning exterior work (deck, new shingles, maybe paint) this summer/fall.
