70’s Dream

Restoration of a stunning 1976 single-family residence

From the Saint-Marc limestone stairway to the layout of the bedrooms and their oversize closets, from the large kitchen overlooking the garden to the dramatic interior spiral staircase, the distinctive elements of this home have been restored to preserve its welcoming personality. The use of classic materials such as wood, travertine and brass soften the composition and recall the origins of the house built during the Montreal Olympic Games. In the courtyard, the rotted wooden terrace is transformed into a gorgeous pool by the garden. Multiple plateau terraces integrate the pool fences and create both a small outdoor living room plus a patio to eat outside. On either side of the courtyard and against the natural stone wall, vegetation and an English garden adorn what has turned into a haven of peace in the mountain ! A dream comes true !
