Condo often rhymes with conformity, but in the case of this unit located in Vieux-Longueuil, in the Parcours du Cerf district (a stone’s throw from Michel-Chartrand park), the builder has visibly gone off the beaten track.

There are high ceilings which, in addition to the effect of space and an entrance with good light, have made it possible to set up a bedroom (modular) on a mezzanine, which gives direct access to a small intimate terrace – we find there accessed by a pretty spiral staircase.

On the lower level, the living room and dining room are located on either side of the long kitchen. Here too, the windows allow several entries of light, and a small balcony has been fitted out on this floor. Two additional bedrooms complete the package, without forgetting the bathroom, very successful with a large bathtub and double sink. The good balance between wood, brick and ceramic, combined with the original layout of the rooms, gives character to the place. As a bonus, a garage in the basement allows parking of a vehicle.
