Built in 1893-1894, this home in the Borough of Ville-Marie was constructed in an architectural style inspired by the Second Empire. A painstaking restoration project in 2010, along with careful maintenance over the years, has allowed the house to retain its original appearance, with its rusticated stone facing, decorative woodwork, staircase, entrance doors and slate tile roof. The Montréal area is filled with architectural treasures that create a rich urban landscape that is a joy to discover and rediscover.
These houses bear witness to the history of those who have shaped our architecture and our way of life. Preserve, maintain, repair and replace with identical elements: this is how we honour our built heritage.
