At first I thought this house was haunted. Exploring this vast and empty house with no furniture, I felt like floating in the ether, lost between two worlds. Then I suddenly caught my reflection in a looking glass above the fireplace. A friendly ghost. But the more I was exploring of this 3 story row house, the more I felt comfortable and enveloped by the delicate light pourring differently inside each of the 13 rooms.

Agent Anne Marineau from Sotheby’s Montreal first kept her distance as she understood I was in a sort of a trance, floating between rooms. The only sound of my camera clicking and echoing in the wooden staircase unraveling over the 3 floors.

“This magnificent stone and brick home was accurately restored while retaining the original architectural sought after details : beautiful moldings, 12.6 foot ceilings and original recessed shutters” explains Anne as we take a look at the beautiful restored hardwood doors.

I particularly loved the copper radiators matching the gorgeous cabinets and faucets.

The owner works in the arts & entertainment scene and was obviously able to appreciate the details and the woodworks you can notice all over the house. Now living out of town, this house now serves as a pied-à-terre. Its very convenient location steps from the Le Quartier des Spectacles and the McGill University campus is a sure bet.

“Even by this hot indian summer day, the house is breathing fresh air in every room” witness Anne as she reveals the confidential backyard and balcony.
