I live in a pretty incredible area - in Montreal, It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and tons and tons of charm - and 20th century architecture, just steps away from the city center, it's also a pretty expensive neighbourhood ( in which I live in servants quarters basically compared to what I'm surrounded by )
Because there are days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one home that's for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Keep in mind this is in the heart of the city - so the prices reflect that - think Manhattan - where these places would cost 3 or 4 times what they're listed for here!
On occasion I'll showcase beautiful homes in other areas - countries - continents - the one thing most of them will have have in common will be their age - because I love old homes with stories to tell, join me won't you?

Okay, I thought I fell in love with the first one...even though I did not like the kitchen BUT then you brought in the second one and I found my banker. INCROYABLE!!! I love everything about it. Stunning.ReplyDelete
Oh, nope, apparently the account is dry. We will not be moving. :)
Ha....phoned my banker....Delete
probably have to find him also!
Oh my lord, I phoned my bookie. Well looks like I won't be moving anytime soon lol. The courtyards are gorgeous. By far this is my favorite too!!!! I will be there in a few weeks. Maybe I can call the real estate agents just to visit and swoon. New Orleans was always on my bucket list. I will also be doing the Anne Rice tour. XxReplyDelete
Love the courtyards! Of course you'd have to have nice neighbours.ReplyDelete
What an amazing post. Loved them all and could probably live quite comfortably in them, now just have to come up with a cool million. DianeReplyDelete
Oh but wouldn't it be worth every single penny of that cool million lol?Delete
Thanks so much Diane!!!!
My house is 100% slave quarters - for the slave that lives there - me.ReplyDelete
I love the way that New Orleans respects it's old buildings and maintains their historic integrity. Too many other cities in the U.S. do not do that.
Oh for heaven's sake! How can I go back to my ordinary life? Love those courtyards. That first one was massive. What a treat! I just loved the comment you left about old books! So glad you stopped by!ReplyDelete
I'm in LOVE with both of them!ReplyDelete
You mean all 3 of them!!!Delete
Thanks so much
I think I'll choose the first one because I'm in love with the attic room. I have an appointment at the bank next Friday, maybe I could tell them I want a new house in New Orleans.ReplyDelete
Suzan, I am in love!! They are all beautiful homes and I could move right in to any of them. Thanks for sharing this at the Open House party.ReplyDelete
I love, love the first 2. Can't believe how HUGE they are. The last one I don't care for at all. I wish I had the $$$$$$$$$$$ to buy one of these. XO, PinkyReplyDelete
Some lovelies here! It's a toss up between the second and third one. I love that bedroom with the bookcases and the fireplace.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my "place" today!
Oh my Lordie Jesus, I think I've died and gone to house Heaven! ...I think I'm still wiping the drool off of my keyboard. Please share this at Moonshine Monday!! YES- My favorite that you have shared so far! :)ReplyDelete
Amber @ The Honeysuckle Bus Stop
Wow,thank you for the tours! I always love looking at homes, especially those from my Louisiana! I think the second may be my favorite! I was really surprised that the first did not have any crown moulding, I would think for the price that they would have put that in! I have seen quite a few new homes being replicated like these but there is still nothing like that old charm!ReplyDelete
Hard to believe those were so gorgeous and huge inside from the look outside. Loved the first one.ReplyDelete
I never have to look at another house again because with that second one, I've found my absolute dream.ReplyDelete
You can come visit too, any time you want, because you're right fair is fair. I'll tell hubby to start the packing. :)
That was amazing!! The high ceilings and all the wood floors, brick and the windows were amazing!! The windows let a lot of light in which I love. The stairways were gorgeous and elegant. While I was looking through them I kept thinking what great parties I could have inside and out.
my kind of homes! all looks stunning. i think i fell inlove with the first one. :)ReplyDelete
i'm visiting from katherine's corner. :)
I want the second one!!!! Can just see the parties on the courtyard - sipping mint juleps and listening to some soft jazz!!!! Wow, wow, wow!!ReplyDelete
I can't stop coming back and looking at them LOL
I'll take door #2, please!ReplyDelete
I will take the third one - it tastes like New Orleans to me. the other two could be anywhere.ReplyDelete
I am dying here. They are all just incredible and I could gladly live in any of the three. If only New Orleans wasn't so hot and humid and sticky.ReplyDelete
Quite a charmer! I love the clay jar by the door and the books! OMG, the books! The song led me to your post. I had such a pleasant time here. Thanks for the tour.ReplyDelete
Dropping by from the Thursday Favorite Things hop,
I had to go back to find the clay pot - gorgeous!!!Delete
And yes the books are spectacular - what dream houses, right?
Thanks so much for joinging!
Always love your tours Suzan. No way would I have thought that first home would be so fabulous inside. Love, love the brick on the walls. I'm doing a bit(see, there's my a bit) of this on one theater room wall. Thanks for sharing with SYC.ReplyDelete
Oh Suzan! This might have been my very favorite too. The first was lovely, but the others were much more what I like...and I love the stairways and all the brick and courtyards. sigh. (actually deserves two sighs.)ReplyDelete
I was born and raised in N.O. and now live just outside N.O. in Destrehan, LA. I have never been inside any French Quarter home so thank you very much for those tours. Amazing.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for coming on the tour with me Patsy!!!Delete
Coming over from The Dedicated House. I'm your newest follower. Love all these homes and I love visiting the French Quarter in New Orleans!ReplyDelete
These homes are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing them!ReplyDelete
Thought I was in love with the first,then the second,then thought, no, I'm more a cottagey type of girl. Then you showed the last one. I'm in love with that one definitely :)ReplyDelete
Aren't they something else Jeanette?Delete
I'd live in the slaves quarters, seriously!
Thanks so much for coming by
Oh, the last one! It almost looks European it is so full of historic details! YUM! Beautiful! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!ReplyDelete
Each house is wonderful in its own way. Thanks for letting me look inside. I loved New Orleans, but of course did not get to see the inside of any houses, just the hotel - which was pretty wonderful itself.ReplyDelete
