I WANNA live there Wednesday # 108

Good morning everyone !!!

I keep thinking I'm going to run out of these homes one day - but every now and then I find one that leaves me completely mesmerized and daydreaming what I could do with them - this is one of those ..............

Again, in Westmount

And if this is your first time here please note that if the prices seem high - this is a beautiful area in Montreal - adjacent to Down Town - most of the homes are turn of the century - and usually filled to the brim with architectural details.  ( and I'm just a little partial to it since we sold our Victorian " flat " in that area last year and I'm still missing it  )
These are not home tours - so if they are not decorated to your taste that's fine - they're homes that are listed for sell.

1,549,000
5 beds
3 baths
1 half bath
Year built - 1914
REALTOR - JOSEPH MONTANARO


See that top balcony?  I LOVE it !


Talk about a grand entrance - isn't this spectacular ?




I almost can't take in the beauty of this room - big gorgeous chandeliers and it's done !


This reminds me of a Manhattan prewar apartment






Oh what I could do to this kitchen - love the stairs !


Maybe add some ceiling beams ?


Sigh....................


Not sure why there's 2 bathrooms off this room - but I'm thinking one is for the toilet - and one for bathing






This next photo?
This is the type of thing that I adore about these houses - makes me crazy with " want "



Extra lottery tickets are in order this week I think !
I'm absolutely in love with this gem - and to be honest with you - for the location - this is positively a steal!

Have a wonderful day everyone !
Big hugs,
Me

  9. *for SALE The little blue radiator! The house has quite the neutral colors. Imagine what it would look like with splashes of color. It's gorgeous!

  10. Oh my stars, what a home, it's breath taking. I'd love to live in that but not have to keep it clean. Guess anybody that can afford it can afford a maid/house cleaner or both? Those floors are to die for, gorgeous. The kitchen is great but those old appliances? Love all those built in's. Would have to buy dishes to fill them. That house looks like it belongs in London or someplace like that. Hope your holidays were spectacular. Happy NEw Year

  12. Wow! I think I could live there (if it were somewhere warm)!

  13. Wow, oh wow! I've never seen floors that gorgeous. Even with all the wood, it doesn't look dark and overwhelming. Let's all go in together and buy it...a kind of blogger's retreat, lol.

  14. Oh, yes. I'm ready to move in. The floors, the windows, the ceiling beams, the lighting. I'd have to repaint the bathroom, though. It is gorgeous. I saw your link at Inspire Me Monday. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey www.irisabbey.com

Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
to try my damnedest !!!
