This 2 floor, furnished 5 bedroom and 3 bathroom home for rent at Cochrane was resiliently built and carefully crafted by the owner with emphasis on the strength of its construction and the use of local woodwork evident in the locally made red cedar doors and the many local wood (coubawi, greenheart, pine) finishes that are seen throughout the house. The home measures approx. 4,623 sq. ft and sits on 19,000 sq. ft of land.
The ground floor with its vanished stone-work floor has an airy, spacious, open concept lay-out: kitchen, dining and living/lounging areas that open onto a huge deck. One bedroom and bathroom are also conveniently situated on the ground floor. The home also provides convenient parking space with a garage (currently used as a workshop/storage area) and a carport.

This floor contains additional living space in a detached 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment which can be accessed by a separate entrance. This apartment is well suited to accommodate guests, in-laws, nanny, etc. It can also be accessed from the main living area via the shared porch.
