Details of the BOX HOUSE designed by award winning architects, Atelier Build, and prize winner in 2000 of the Grand Prix of Rome, for this design:
The aptly named Box House is situated where Saint-Christophe meets Duluth and becomes a charming alleyway and lane. Ideally located in the heart of the effervescent Plateau-Mont-Royal, an area that boasts the largest number of artists in Canada, young professionals as well as families.
The exciting interior oscillates between an industrial loft and a practical home environment. The space is ideal for singles, couples or a family with a teenager. The dramatic and soaring living space features a lovely mezzanine (den or office) floating above & overlooking the living room. The double height corner window (ceiling height in this area is 17 feet 8 inches) affords a view down the middle of the laneway. The triple height slot on the houses's west side captures the afternoon sun and a view of Mount Royal. The industrial style landings as well as the top floor skylight add to the impression of the property.
The home is located a few blocks from magnificent and expansive Lafontaine Park as well as Saint-Denis & Saint-Hubert and is an ideal area for walkabouts and exploration. The vibrant location also offers a variety of restaurants and many shops all within a radius of less than one kilometer.
On the ground floor, a spacious bedroom with its bathroom as well as access to the private parking & 2 storage lockers. There is also a coat closet and a closet that reveals the washer and dryer.
On the first floor you will find the kitchen with modern appliances and mosaic tile counters open to the stunning living room and dining room with its 17'8 ceiling height, beamed wood ceilings and fabulous full height windows. There is also a balcony on this level.
On the mezzanine (2nd floor), you will find an inviting space suitable for multiple purposes and currently used as a den with TV. It offers a great view of the outside as well as of the main floor.
On the top floor there is a large master bedroom with 2 closets and adjoining bathroom. 2 sinks for added convenience. Here we find another private balcony.
Plateau-Mont-Royal in Montreal is filled with art and beautiful homes at every turn and rated one of the "hippest" neighbourhoods in North America for over 20 years. A must see for lovers of design and lifestyle!
