For Sale By Owner: UtHC Kitchen & Surrounding House

First look at the UtHC kitchen

This isn’t going to be your typical post, and quite honestly, I debated whether I should go ahead with it or not. In the end, I decided that this blog is just too good of a platform to not use to my advantage, so thanks in advance for putting up with the real estate shark in me (Who knew?) and for hearing me out.

Here’s the deal: we’re selling our house!

Yep, UtHC is moving to some new digs; not a new virtual “hosting” site or “domain”, but the actual brick and mortar kitchen where the cooking magic happens. I’ll be sad to say goodbye to my sunny kitchen with its hardwood floors and warm terracotta walls; after all, this is where the highchair phase of our lives started.

The house will be on the market in a few days, but I would love to pass this cozy, functional kitchen on to someone who will use it as much as I did. And that is why you, dear (local) readers, are eligible for an EXCLUSIVE opportunity before this hits the market and gets snatched up by a non-foodie!

So… who wants it? I’m serious. Don’t forget there is a kitchen garden or ‘potager‘ as we like to call it, that starred in it’s own series last year.

Here are details:

If you are looking to purchase a modest home in the South Shore area of Montreal, email me at aimee(dot)c(dot)bourque(at)gmail(dot)com and I would be more than happy to give you more information.

Would this be any fun if there were no incentive? Of course not! Tell your friends who are looking to buy a home about this kitchen you see in the photos. If you refer someone to me who ends up taking over the stoves (stove included without legal warranty, wink, wink!), I’ll come to your place and cook dinner for you and a few friends. How does that sound?

Start the bidding…

Due to the personal nature of this post, I’d prefer to answer questions via email, rather than in the comments. Thanks!
We will be back with our regular programming soon!
