I live in a pretty incredible area - in Montreal, It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and tons of charm - and 20th century architecture, just steps away from the city center, it's also a pretty expensive neighbourhood ( in which I live in servants quarters basically compared to what I'm surrounded by )Because there are days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one or two homes that are for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Keep in mind this is in the heart of the city - so the prices reflect that - think Manhattan - where these places would cost 3 or 4 times what they're listed for here!
On occasion I'll showcase beautiful homes in other areas - countries - continents - the one thing most of them will have have in common will be their age - because I love old homes with stories to tell, join me won't you?
Series within a series - I plan on doing a mini-series ( like North an South ) within the I WANNA live there series just for these homes - they're so spectacular they deserve to have their own!
Antebellum architecture (sometimes spelled ante-bellum, meaning "pre-war", from the Latinante, "before", and bellum, "war") is the neoclassical architectural style characteristic of theSouthern United States, especially the Old South, from after the birth of the United States in theAmerican Revolution, to the start of the American Civil War.[unreliable source?] Antebellum architecture is especially characterized by neoclassical and Greek revival style plantationhouses and mansions

I'm shaking my head so much I have a headache - I'm in total disbelief here
not only do I want this house - but I want that secretary to be included as well
