Originally built in the 1960s by esteemed architect Guy Desbarats, known for his work on Place des Arts and The Beaver Lake Pavillion, this home is an architectural masterpiece that has been meticulously renovated to appease modern day luxury standards. Ideal condo alternative or a great family home.
The current owners undertook a 2 year renovation/restoration when they purchased the home 10 years ago with the help of architect Ana Borrallo. The original architectural features were thoughtfully preserved or replicated. The home sits nestled in an approximately 11,000 sq.ft. wooded lot in mid-level Westmount. The front entrance sets the tone for the rest of the home with slab marble floors, concrete walls and rays of light coming through the cork and walnut wood slat ceilings. At the other end of the large entrance hall is the circular staircase with light beaming down from the skylight stories above - a beautiful contrast between the shadows and light which is a repeating theme in the home. Once upstairs, the space is brilliantly laid out for an open concept feel while giving each room its respective space. A grand sunken living room with wood burning fireplace give access to the backyard. The kitchen is finished with a mix of lacquered and exotic wood cabinetry, stainless countertops and top of the line appliances including a 48" SubZero fridge, double Miele ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, drink fridge & Miele built-in coffee machine. A walk in pantry and adjacent glassed-in double height eating area overlooking the outside greenery complete the kitchen space. The dining room comfortably seats 14 and has a built-in marble serving counter and smoked glass LED feature wall. Also on this floor is a cozy family room with built-in desk area and a powder room. Upstairs, the master bedroom rivals that of a 5 star hotel suite, with its generous proportions, gas fireplace, exotic wood built-ins and a stunning white marble clad ensuite bathroom with steam shower, large soaker tub, a stunning double vanity and sizeable walk-in closet. 2 other bedrooms and a kid's bathroom complete this level. The ground level houses a guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom, laundry room, wine cellar and 2 car garage.
