Because there's days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one home that's for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Good morning everyone!
It's that time again - and boy do I have a beauty to show you this week
This home was built in 1875 ( makes mine look new at the turn of the century lol )
and it's listed at 1,575,000.00 -
Come on in everybody.................
TAKE your shoes off
TAKE it all in
and most of all
TAKE your time
I have to say the one thing I love about these heritage homes is how totally unassuming they look from the front - just a simple classic row house
If I had that kind of money to plunk down - I'd simply write a cheque from the next photo alone........I would just send my chauffeur over with a cheque and tell him to politely hand it over to the owner -
Those antique front doors? O.M.G.
The work on the stairwell?
And that white hutch over on the right hand side?
Ok - ready for the next one
the fireplace, the built ins, the chandy, oh my............
words are now starting to fail me - not a good thing for a blogger
the SECOND stairwell going up to the 3rd floor
music room anyone ? do re mi fa so la ti do - I was meant to have one of these - not to actually play - but to drape myself across at parties - that was the Suzan I was meant to be
and as Cher sang:
I'm a scamp, a vamp and a bit of a tramp
not my favorite bathroom in the series - but I'll take it
and if you saw my bathroom you'd vomit so don't know who the hell I am exactly to make such a comment lol
Is that blind the sweetest thing ever? there you go friends, a new diy project - looks easy
obviously that's the kids bath - and playroom - surely that much space can't be used for just one purpose?
Ok - shut the freaking door will you please?
No I mean that literally, shut the door, I want to just sit in this closet and reflect for awhile, maybe stare at shoes for a couple of hours......................
Upper balcony - one of 3
Those spiral staircases are very unique to Montreal - they're everywhere, even in the fronts of a lot of buildings and they are usually Black Wrought Iron.............this was apparently the Irish influence at the turn of the century ( although I can tell these are not the original ones - they must have been replaced ) as a young child I was able to run up and down these ( sometimes in roller skates ) as a teenager I would lug a bike up and down staircases very similar to these..................
I just love this outdoor space - no lawn mower ! and that's the door to the
And I'm going to show you next week's this week ( because I'm nice like that )
and show you what you can get for half the price - 839,000 - it has an immense amount of potential - I know there'll be things you aren't so crazy about it - but think POTENTIAL ok?
Because it's absolutely swimming in it!!!
I love the double molding - it's all over this place
and I know a lot of people would not agree with me - I would want to see this bathroom restored - not renovated - except for the vanity - that needs to be an old dresser!
check out that small round window - shows you how thick the walls used to be
ok so that was all a little depressing lol
see you tomorrow!
