Built in 2010 on a favorite piece of land ideally located on Île des Sœurs, this prestigious and timeless residence has seen the growth of a family with three children, who wish to leave it today for a very special project…

When they saw the location of this land, the owners were immediately won over. “We were looking for a peaceful place to raise our children, close to the city center. This land is located in a private street of three houses and is backed by a protected forest, where nothing will ever be built. We fell in love because it’s the best of both worlds! “, says Annie Côté, the mistress of the place.

The couple then contacted the Jean Houde Group, which specializes in prestigious residences, because they have an eye for detail and wanted a tailor-made home made with quality materials. “We also wanted the house to be on the cutting edge of technology. It is equipped with a geothermal system that keeps it well tempered in all seasons and it is fully automated,” continues Ms. Côté.

In addition to its technical attractions and high-end layout, this four-storey residence is very functional. Upstairs, the large entrance opens onto a bright and friendly open area for everyday family life. The kitchen, with its 7 ft island, is worthy of that of a great chef and includes a superb butcher’s block made by the cabinetmaker Giroux

The second floor has three good-sized bedrooms, including a master suite with private bathroom, a walk-in closet for the gentleman and another for the lady. “There is one detail that I absolutely wanted, it was to put the laundry room at this level; it’s really convenient,” Ms. Côté points out.

A loft furnished at the highest level meets different needs, since it includes a bedroom and a bathroom where grandparents occasionally stay. As for the basement, it has long hosted a nanny who had her bedroom and her bathroom there. “She took care of the kids when they were little and when she left, we took down the partition to make the playroom bigger. » A large mudroom and a large double garage where cars can be washed complete the house.

Outside, the very intimate backyard is exceptional in an urban setting.

Inside and out, the place seems idyllic and Annie Côté reveals that it was the house of their dreams. But then why sell it?

During the pandemic, the family traveled by motor vehicle for a year. “We had a bit of a taste for adventure and, on the way back, we made the decision with the children to change our way of life and leave. Now they are 13, 12 and 9 years old. We bought another RV, a 36-foot Class A, says Ms. Côté. Also, the pandemic made us think a lot about the values ​​of life and we chose to take advantage of it and then see the country with the children day by day. We did distance school the first time we left and it went really well. »

Her ideal home will leave her with many happy memories and she assures that future buyers will find absolute comfort there, in a privileged environment.
