This rare three-story duplex brings together the advantages
of a cottage with its large cottage style two floor
apartment (2nd and 3rd floor) and a rental unit on the
first floor which helps pay the mortgage. It is also ideal
for a multigenerational occupancy or, should you want to
occupy the whole building, the two apartments can be
converted into one immense three story apartment (the
borrow allows for such conversion of duplexes, but forbids
it for triplexes). And for even more space, the basement
can be converted to living space.
This unique duplex has a lot of character with its high
ceilings, its original pine floors cut from mature trees,
hence much harder than today's wood, its plaster ceiling
medallions and crown mouldings, its beautiful bannister (in
the cottage style apartment), its three skylights offering
great luminosity, and numerous other architectural details.
Also remarkable is the floor plan which makes optimal and
ergonomic use of the space.
You enter the cottage style apartment through a formal
entrance separate from common spaces which gives you
access, on the left, to the large kitchen and living room,
two bedrooms, and the stairs leading to the top floor of
the apartment. You can therefore enjoy the living room
without interruptions for the comings and goings of other
members of the household. The apartment also has the
toilette in a separate room from the bathroom. No more will
you have to get out of the bath because someone needs to go
to the toilet.
The duplex is also ideally located. A few minutes from the
Lachine Canal, the Nordelec, Building 7, less than a minute
drive to Costco, walking distance to Griffintown, ETS, the
Old Montreal, a few minutes from downtown and near a
projected station of the REM. It is also a few minutes walk
from the site chosen by promotors for the new baseball
