Lovely 1 bedroom basement apartment with kitchenette + private bath centrally located 1863 renovated semi-detached Halifax home. Vibrant neighbourhood walking distance to a variety of restaurants, downtown, waterfront, universities and hospitals. Separate entry with keypad access. Backyard oasis for use by guests. Owner occupies upper level of house with 2 cats. Double bed in separate bedroom, queen sofa bed in open main area. Free overnight & weekend parking. More parking info below.
The basement apartment is approximately 800 square feet, has a ceiling height of 8 feet and has heated, polished concrete floors. Several windows keep the space bright and cheerful, and a separate thermostat keeps the place cozy.

As well as the basement apartment, guests may access the small backyard with a pond and deck chairs, through a side entrance way. This is shared with the owner.
I live in the upper part of the house so am available most mornings and evenings. I use three or four afternoons per week for various appointments but am easily reachable by telephone. I'm happy to chat if you want to interact.
Parking: Daily parking in the area is by the hour but there are no meters. Can be tricky. Visitor's parking pass available, $5 for one day, $20 for 2-14 days. I must register for a Visitor's pass after arrival with your vehicle info. Takes about 45 minutes. Overnight and weekend parking is free. Bicycles: I have two serviceable bicycles and two helmets for use. Halifax requires helmets. One bike is a 10 speed with a cross bar, the other a hybrid with no cross bar.
- Quiet hours after 11:00 pm, reasonable use of laundry and heat
