Ground floor of stately 1860’s house on quiet, tree lined street a short walk to major shopping, entertainment and dining. Spacious interior combines original architectural features, antique and modern furniture with contemporary art. Great kitchen. Adapted for handicaped persons.
It's a very handsome well maintained historical building located in the centre of Montreal's vital social and cultural core. The interior is gracious and comfortable. I'm an avid cook so the kitchen is fully equipped as a convenient and attractive work space. The 1200 sq. ft living space is well laid out with a large Master Bedroom containing an early 19th century mahogany armoire and an oak double 'Nova Scotia Boat Bed'. The second bedroom has a single bed, a large desk and walls lined with bookshelves.
I particularly enjoy the contrast between the historical architecture and furnishings and the contemporary art on many of the walls.
Guests will have access to the full apartment; however, there will be some objects left in one of the closets. In the spring and summer, the back garden with BBQ and patio dining space are very pleasant. In the winter the occasional snowman is made.
Interazione con gli ospiti
Unfortunately, I will be out of the country but a colleague will be here on guest arrival to provide keys, answer any questions and establish communication should other questions arise during the guests' stay. A 'femme de ménage', Madame Viveros, will clean the apartment weekly
Altre cose da evidenziare
I have limited mobility so I have made sure the apartment is handicapped friendly. There is wheelchair and mobility scooter access from both the front and rear doors. The bathtub/shower has security hand grips as well as a shower bench.
The kitchen is very well stocked with spices, herbs, nuts, dried fruit etc. and within reason guests are welcome to use them; just replace anything that runs out.
Smoking is acceptable sitting at the dining room table and using the blue ashtrays but not in the bedrooms or sitting on the white couch in the living room. The blue ashtrays are particularly effective in assuring that lit cigarettes do not fall out (an ex-smoker knows).
