I live in a pretty incredible area - in Montreal, It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with 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 or two homes that are 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?
Does Wednesday seem to be coming quicker and quicker to anyone else?
It just seems like yesterday when it was Tuesday......................
Ok - first one up is an apartment - a turn of the century apartment building
( ok I'm exaggerating again - built in 1906 - old enough )
Here's the Realtor's description
Fabulous top floor 2 bedroom, 2 bath corner apartment with views reminiscent of a Paris
cityscape. Sunny open concept living space has 10' plus ceiling height with wood beams,
exposed brick, fireplace and halogen accent lighting. Master suite with ensuite, great closets
and balcony. Indoor parking and storage. A/C. Ideal Victoria Village location!
Realtor Tania Kalecheff
Let's take a peak - This is really a spectacular apartment!
Talk about filled to the brim with character - those beams - that fireplace - the exposed brick and yet they've brought it into this millenium by opening everything up - talk about a perfect marriage between old and new!
Love those " angled " windows!
A perfect " niche "
Great idea to have cupboards facing the dining room!!!
Is that stove MIRROR????? I've never seen stainless steel shine like that
The next apartment goes for 649,000 ( Upper Duplex )
An unrivaled location, charming exposed brick walls, an exceptionally large master bedroom, and easily-accessed private parking spot are but a few of the many features that make this light-filled 2 bedroom upper duplex a city dweller's paradise.
Realtor Liza Kaufman
Just as gorgeous as the first one! And absolutely love how charming this street is!
When you open the front door - there is a staircase that leads you to your apartment - this would be your own personal staircase............and once you walk up the stairs you're in your space - LOVE the railing ( at one time this would have been an enclosed stairwell - and you would have opened a door to enter the apartment...........so much better this way!
The next one is a lower unit - so you have a terrace!
Year built 1896
2 bedrooms - 2 baths
This place is HUGE
Realtor Martin Rouleau
The Terrace is a MAJOR PLUS - and it's right in the heart of what is called Victoria Village - surrounded by quaint small stores - restaurants - ect....
Choices Choices Choices LOL
I love them all for different reasons..........................
See you tomorrow :)
