Because there's 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 )
You know what? I'm fed up of being in the city this week - so let's head up north -
1st stop Mont Tremblant - ( named by the Algonquins - " trembling mountain " )
Bobby Kennedy and Ethel met on this mountain way back in the day.
This is first and foremost known for it's ski resorts - however it's a pretty spectacular place in the summer too.
It used to be a winter wonderland for the International jet set - and although it's still very costly to live there ( as you can see from the first house I'm showing - there are still affordable condos to be had )
Here's what the N.Y Times has to say
TUCKED into the Laurentian Mountains less than 80 miles north ofMontreal, Mont Tremblant is a stunning Quebec ski town perched at the southern tip of Lake Tremblant. It somehow manages to blend the kitsch of a Disney-like ski resort, the elegance of a small cosmopolitan city and the serenity of fir-and-pine-covered mountains. Isabella and Brian Allendorfer make the 15-hour drive from Chicago with their two children, ages 5 and 3, at least four times a year. The couple bought a three-bedroom, ski-in, ski-out property just minutes from the pedestrian village for 419,000 Canadian dollars last July.
“We couldn’t touch anything like that in the U.S.,” Mrs. Allendorfer said.
Ok everyone, let's go! It's about an hour from Montreal -
You can have this one for 1,950,000.
Ok - stunning beyond belief definitely - but if you can't afford to buy your own country basically -
Here's a more affordable place at 315,000. - just a few photos - but I think it's so charming
3 bedroom - 3 bath - close to ski and golf resorts
AND IF YOU WANT TO COME DOWN EVEN LOWER 129,000 CAN GET YOU THIS ADORABLE CONDO - MINUTES FROM THE SKI TRAILS
THEY EVEN MANAGED TO SQUEEZE A BEDSIZED LOFT IN THERE ( FOR OVERNIGHT GUESTS? )
MONTREAL IS LOADED WITH EUROPEAN CHARM ( DID YOU KNOW WE'RE CONSIDERED THE EUROPEAN CITY OF NORTH AMERICA ? )
BUT MONT TREMBLANT COULD BE A VILLAGE RIGHT OUT OF SWITZERLAND - TAKE A PEAK AT THESE
OK OK - DON'T WANNA LIVE THERE BUT WOULD LIKE TO SPEND SOME TIME IN MONT TREMBLANT TO SEE WHAT ALL THE HYPE IS ABOUT? YOU CAN CLICK HERE - IT'S A PRETTY MAGICAL PLACE....................
