Brief history: The British Government had granted the permits for the construction of this residence in 1938. The property was used as a shelter for the children of 5 English Noble's during the Second World War. In effect, between 1938 and 1945 many children lived in this residence before returning to their country of origin once the conflict ended. During this era, the residence was comprised of 11 bedrooms and a dormitory of 25 beds in the attic. This property of close to three quarter century has only ever had three owners.
The moment you enter the main building, you will capture the charm. In the hallway you will admire the authentic, antique wood door along with floors comprised of solid slabs of slate, which at one time were a part of the sidewalks in old Montréal.
The main floor is composed of an immense living room boasting a beautiful stone fireplace, an elegant dining room that can easily accommodate 10 guests, a fully renovated gourmet kitchen, a family room including library, stone fireplace and a spacious sunroom with radiant flooring.
The 2nd floor is comprised of 5 bedrooms, 2 of which are complemented with fireplaces and 5 renovated bathrooms. The magnificent master's quarters are complete with a lecture corner, fireplace and luxurious ensuite bathroom. In the attic, which was previously known as the dormitory, is currently unused, the space is quite large (34X16).
In the basement you will find a plenty of storage space, cedar closet, sauna, bathroom and mechanical room.
The exterior boasts manicured gardens, large open spaces, gazebo, glass solarium, fenced area used for dogs, tennis court and garage, which complete the setting. We cannot overlook the quaint, cozy and fully functional guesthouse, which is currently occupied by the caretakers of the property.
