Since Marie Champagne and I at Engel & Völkers are bringing to market this last available unit of Projet Normanville in Rosemont, we managed to secure access to the two-floor PH just above our unit, where one of the architects of the project actually resides. You can therefore appreciate how this whole project is consistent. Please remove your shoes.

Projet Normanville is the conversion of a typical Montreal duplex into a tall 4 unit boutique development, confidentially blending behind the tall oak trees of Rosemont. Their thick foliage and the extra distance from the street curb created by the area’s signature sidewalks provide intimacy and shade.

The noble materials like walnut and cerezo wood essences combined with the rusty corten steel achieve a “gold rush” ambiance with clean lines and surfaces.



Upstairs, the passerelle forces you to acknowledge its presence and created an interesting hypnosis effect to some of the curious clients I brought up for private showings!

The whole open layout of the second floor is amazing, stretching from one terrace to the other. Above the rest of the neighbourhood, you can confidently entertain friends while quietly growing vegetables on the other side.

And this shower is bursting with natural light and legs room, perfect to make phone calls in the morning.

Hitting the market: The 1200 sq/ft unit offered at 399 000$

We just listed the second floor unit where you will find the same level of craftsmanship that will hypnotize your guests! Clean lines, slick finishes with that same rugged but minimal look. Thanks to architects Charles-Alexandre Dubois and Eric Potvin-Rémillard for the access and this amazing project!
