I WANNA live there # 53

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?
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

A little break from the give aways - because this is a series after all - and we'll resume the give aways on Thursday and Friday - and Monday and Tuesday!!!

It looks like our home may go on the market next week - so these I WANNA live there's may become a little more realistic for awhile lol
These are all in the same price range more or less and are outside of my neighborhood - they're in a community outside Montreal called Hudson - which I've showcased before - and though they're smaller homes - they're packed with charm!!!

First one up is listed at 324,900
3 bedroom - 1 bath - 1 powder room
REALTOR - Lyndon Paul Gallagher























The next one is 344,000
2 beds - 1 bath - 1 powder room
Realtor - Diane and Paul Laflamme











































I could see us living in either of them - perfect little homes for these 2 empty nesters!!!

See you all tomorrow - and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

  1. Oh my gosh! The second one! I am putting my house on the market immediately and heading north!! I love this house...and the decor...and the light...and the big bathtub! Oh, the fireplace and the island in the kitchen. Dying here...

  2. These are both gorgeous, but the second one is just about perfect.

  3. The SECOND ONE!! I am going to be referring to this post when it's time to remodel the kitchen...it's exactly how I want my kitchen to look!

  4. I love the second one! I don't care for the slanted ceilings but I love the outside area and the porch! Dianntha

  5. They are both very beautiful. It's hard to choose, but I think I'm leaning a tad bit more toward the first one. Hudson is such a gorgeous area; you are bound to find something great there.

  6. Both are very nice. I love the painted floors in number 2....I would love to paint my floors white but hubby and the naysayers think I would destroy the value in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The first one, for sure. The backyard could use a little attention, but the interior is beautiful - and very much my style. Love it! (What's a powder room? is it adjacent to a bathroom?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wouldn't it be so awesome to be able to design your own house, exactly like you wanted it?? Your post has got me daydreaming today!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I really like the second home, it looks so cozy and inviting. Especially like those blue shutters on either side of the window in the living area. Nice pop of color!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh- You have so much to look forward to, Suzan. I hope your house sells quickly and that you can find the perfect spot for you and John. You will make it beautiful no matter how it starts out. Hope you have a wonderful day- xo Diana

  11. Love the outdoor spaces of the second one. This house would fit right in around here. I wonder if the blue shutters are to keep the "haints" out? A southern custom.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Both of these are so cute but I like the second one a little more. I can't wait to see what you choose for your new home!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Run, don't walk to buy the second one....OMG, you may have to race me there Suzan. I LOVE it. And the price is so right for Hudson...really, that cheap in Hudson?? I absolutely adore it!
    I love this series Suzan!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love the old doors on the top one and LOOOOOVVEE the bath on the bottom!

    ReplyDelete
  15. They are both very pretty! The first one is more my style, but it's about you! I wonder which of those two is John's favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love them both but love the first one the most!

    ReplyDelete
  17. These are both such beautiful homes but I really love the second one best. I like the coziness of it and all the storage cupboards, the kitchen and bath are gorgeous, the bedrooms cute, the wainscotting, the stone fire place. Oh I just love it!!! The back yard is manageable and private. Of course the current homeowner is an awesome decorator and I could just move right in! :) Beautiful. (magazine worthy!)

  18. Hi Suzan,
    Ohhhhh I like them both too. The second one with that stone chimney so charming. Love the kitchen and that bathroom in the second one too. Wow two great choices.

  19. Here's another vote for the second one!I could even live with the small bedrooms with such all the detail in the downstairs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love them both. Are you going to visit them? I so would like to come with you if you do! Maybe I can ask for a day off? I've already worked two days!

  22. They are both very nice, but I like the second one better. I love the fireplace, the walls in the dining room, all the windows over the kitchen sink and the bathroom in the second house. It just seems to have a little more personality and be a little more interesting.

    1. I really do love them both for different reasons - the second one may have more historical charm though :)

  23. You are SO gonna want to live in MY "there" when we finally get it finished. Which, of course, may be 13 more years...

  24. Both of them are great! If I were buying and had to speak to choose between the two, I would be stuck speechless, lol.

  25. I am in love with the first house. Beautiful floors, titles and kitchen. It's just lovely.

    Hugs,

  26. I would move to Montreal for that second one...I love it! You should buy it.
    I did see one potential problem, though. Those kitchen windows are just waiting for squirrels to jump in! Bwaaahhhaaaaahaaaa!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ohhhh....LOVE the second one! Those vintage details are wonderful! I hope you get some commission from these agents! You deserve it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the outside on all of them. So charming and green.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Such beautiful homes! The locations look like a heavenly place to come home to. Look the porches and outdoor spaces!

  31. I love the second one.. The porches and outside areas are a dream. The bedrooms seem a little small in the pics but, overall I love it... You are going to have so much fun looking...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Best of luck on selling your home! I can't wait to see what you end up with! All the homes you showcase make me want to live there...lol! So pretty...:)

  35. Hi Suzan!!!

    I was impressed when I was visiting my uncle who lives in Hudson!!
    It's beautiful year round. I liked the first house. The owner has
    decorated it so beautifully!!

    As you know, Hudson is very closed to where I grew up and where my
    heart belongs!!

    I wish you all the best in a quick sale and an easy purchase!!!

  36. I could be happy in either of those homes...if I HAD to choose, probably the first because the kitchen looks more spacious.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Both homes are really lovely, but I adore the second one. That kitchen, and bathroom, and the stone fireplace!! Love all the charm!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. IF someone could pack, move me and unpack, I'd take either one! I love the 2nd one especially. I'm not straightened out from this move but again, IF someone.... :)

  39. Love that second house. So much charm. And the both have great outdoor spaces and fencing. I've got a craving for a farmhouse kitchen.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't think you could go wrong with either one. It is a dream of mine to one day own this type of home. Good luck.

    Hi Suzan!
    It's so fun to peak into other people's homes for inspiration!
    I found so many inspiring ideas from your photos.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
    Have a beautiful week,
    Suzanne

  42. Beautiful homes all. I think it is fun to see the real estate in other areas. I love the bath in the first one soooo much.

  43. I love them. I really love the carpet runner on the stairs in the second home. You could just rip it out and mail it to me! Now I can hardly wait until you move!! Haha JK, but I will definitely pin this one so I can keep my eyes open for the same rug! Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those are both beautiful homes.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I agree that the second one has more historical charm:) Perfect for two empty nesters. Now that the kids are gone we are thinking about a move to a smaller home. These are both lovely homes with so much warmth:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Very cute homes with lots of charm, but what's with those prices, wow! For $300,000 to $344,000 you could get a NICE sized fully landscaped lot and mansion here in the Milwaukee County area in a great neighborhood, with crappy weather similar to Montreal's so you wouldn't get homesick. Let me rephrase that - with a climate similar to the wonderful experience of four full seasons (if you don't count Spring and Fall which generally show up here for about 2 hours each year) that you have in Montreal. The U.S. dollar is worth less than the Canadian dollar so your Canadian dollars will buy more down here, too. And we don't have a 15% sales tax (yet). We do, however, have a Republican controlled state government so on second thought, you would probably want to stay well away from here. We're rapidly regressing to the 17th century BCE around here.

    The fence . . . the deck . . . the kitchen and those windows . . . the bath . . . WONDERFUL.

    I can't wait to see what you choose.

  50. Great homes!! That second one "charmed" me with the cozy details :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. The first one is my favorite, though the tub in the second one is dreamy. I can't believe you are getting closer to listing your house. I am anxious to hear if it sells as quickly as your last house.

  52. This house has loads of charm! Love it!

  53. I love the second one. Such charm and character. We built a farmhouse about 9 years ago. for some reason, I have always been drawn to farmhouses. I am visiting from Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and am a new follower of yours. I wold love for you to stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a visit and to follow along if you like. Thanks for the tour of two lovely homes!
