Affordable and adorable: We challenged ourselves to find Quebec properties for sale under $500,000, but with a little something that makes them stand out.

Plateau-Mont-Royal, Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension… the areas around the orange line of the Montreal metro having been taken over by buyers for several years, there is no it’s not always easy to find affordable and stylish accommodation there. That’s why this condo located a stone’s throw from Jarry station and bordered by a bike path attracts attention, with an interesting location (Jarry Park is a ten-minute walk away) and good potential as an urban cocoon. .

The current occupants, present since 2014, also demonstrate that it is possible to enhance the different rooms of the apartment, judiciously arranged in an open area (living room and kitchen) with a recessed bedroom giving direct access to a nice rear terrace. “We have a very nice division, without loss of space, each room being well proportioned, which is very popular and has quickly generated enthusiasm. In addition, the sector is very popular, “said broker Alexis Roux-Spitz.

With the right choice of furniture, decor, plants and lighting, places take full advantage of penetrating light – we could take inspiration from the beautiful library in the bedroom, the judicious arrangement of a digital piano cabinet or the very inviting terrace with its bench and picnic-style table. Built in 2008, the six-unit brick building on three levels (the condo in question is located on the first floor) is modern and well-maintained.
