I WANNA live there # 54

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?
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Good morning Y'all - ( I love it - sorry we don't say it up here in Montreal - but I still love it LOL ) 
Here we would say Bonjour toutes les mondes

Ok - this morning we're headed out to the same neighborhood as last weeks farmhouses - Hudson.

And this house is right off the river.............

1,600,000
3 bedroom
3 bath ( and 1 half bath ) 
Realtor JOSEPH MONTANARO

WOW.............that's it - just WOW ............this place leaves me speechless








wipe your feet please - we've been walking down by the river after all















Really - I think I'd be content to just sleep on the landing every night















The next one is listed at 
2,199,000
16 rooms
6 bedrooms - 7 baths - 1 half bath

  1. Oh, oh, oh!!! Second house as I am a complete sucker for turrets! I do like that kitchen better and the guest house would be the most incredible space for my studio. Now I'M off to get a lottery ticket...and a passport!

  2. I might just be able to scrape enough together for the coach house! Both utterly gorgeous. Not only the houses, but the beautiful settings too. I need to marry for money next time, lol.

  3. Impossible to choose, Suzan! They are both so gorgeous. But I don't think I'd be able to get further than the coach house...LOL... Not unless the lottery comes in! Even so, I'd be content with that as it's by the water.

  4. They're both beautiful, but I have to go with the second one! Oh I could be happy there forever!!

  5. Mmmm gorgeous!!! I wonder why these homes are for sale in this belle province de Quebec??? Oh so gorgeous. :(. I know the owners of one of these homes and the reason why they decided to sell.

  6. Wow! These are really spectacular! I'll take door #2!

  7. Wow, these are spectacular homes Suzan. I think I might be able to afford one of the smaller rooms in one of them or perhaps the carriage house. lol The second one is really gorgeous but who needs all that room???

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am torn. I cannot decide between the indoor pool of the first, or the stained glass windows and hobbit door under the stairs of the second...

    ReplyDelete
  9. WOW Suzan, they both are perfect. I love them, but that lake is calling my name. I would volunteer to just sleep in the kitchens, gorgeous!!! I wouldn't mind that carriage house either if it had a nice bed and no smelly animals, LOL!

  10. Absolute EYE candy. I LOVE that first house -well, both of them- but I want to put Kitchen #2 in House #1. Do you think that would be too much to ask?;>) xo Diana

  11. I love everything about that first house except for the flagstone wall and the parquet flooring in the billiards room. In fact, I'd be willing to settle for half an acre. down by the river. What a gorgeous setting!

    LOVE, LOVE the interior of the 2nd one, but not the exterior. Sigh. I'm so hard to satisfy. LOL

  12. Bonjour, y'all! (I'm southern of French descent!) Gosh, not one person mentioned the housekeeping staff to run these two estates!?! I'll just need that indoor pool and I will be happy. As long as I don't have to clean it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my! My question is "Who wouldn't want to live there"? Just plain gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ohhhhhh love them both but my heart is in the first one. That dining room with the fireplace oh my!!!! I love to entertain and that would be a dream dining room to have. That stone wall and staircase. Wooooo love it. I love the coach house on the second one. I could live there!!!!! Both are great and beautiful homes. I just wish I had a spare million or two!!!!

  16. I'm going to outbid Lauren (above me) on house #1. :)

    I like the size of the rooms on the main floor, and the awesome rich wood in the kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  17. OMG Suzan, I am swooning a both houses, but I love the first one more - I don't know, despite the size, I still feel it's "quaint"! Love the views too! Thanks for the tour!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What I LOVE about the first house is the pure luxury of space tho I am not a fan of dark wood anywhere, especially in the kitchen. For some reason I couldn't get my bearings in house #2...do the rooms all seem disjointed from each other? But that darling little door under the staircase in house 2....leaves you to ponder what might be behind it :-)
    You and Kris from junkchiccottage loose in in there each with a paint brush? Oh boy.

  19. I'm voting for the first one with a kitchen makeover!

    ReplyDelete
  20. The first is my favorite although if one were to be given to me, I would be happy with either one!

    ReplyDelete
  21. All I can say is WOW....just WOW! I can't imagine living in something so beautiful! The coach house is much more my speed...but I think I could easily adjust to living like a millionaire! :) Thanks for sharing!

  22. Only in my dreams.....actually my dreams don't even know about houses like these!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. fabulous... makes me so jealous !

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love them but I still really love that cute one you posted last time, the second one. These feel too massif for me.... and my pocketbook.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Beautiful, but too big. What can you find me on a river for around $500,000 Canadian?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well, if you include a full staff to garden, clean, etc., I'll take the 2nd one!

  27. Wow! That's a tough choice. I love the lot and the exterior of house #1, as well as the exposed stone wall and that grand staircase. But I think I like the interior of house #2 better. I love the sun room with all those windows. I'll just take them both.

  28. Oh my goodness! They are both beautiful. That room in the second house with all the windows- sunroom, I think. Love it! The coach house is fab too. Wow

  29. Amazing - both of them. Incredible ceilings.

  30. Speechless is right! Loved both homes. I miss you linking up to SYC.

  31. Those are so ginormous I could do cartwheels in them!

    If only I could still do cartwheels...

  32. Love the view of the lake too! I lived in Montreal for a year when I was a child but definitely not in such spacious homes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. gee whiz...they could have cleaned out the walk-in closet of the second house! i love the architecture on this one!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I prefer the second one, it has more charming features, but 16 rooms??? I think I prefer the smaller one you showed us in a previous IWLTW!
