La Maison Marlo is located in the beautiful waterfront district of Lachine (15 minute drive from downtown Montreal). Built in the late 1880s, the home was completely and tastefully restored in 2010 to reflect its rustic beginnings. This is a 1500 SF loft-style home on the second level of a two story building. The living area consists of a master bedroom, a second small bedroom, a large living room, kitchen, dining area and a bathroom/laundry room. A balcony sits off the master bedroom, and there is a 10 x 16' terrasse in the back with a gas bbq and sitting area where you can relax or watch the activity of the outdoor market across the way.
When you enter into the home you are greeted by the beautiful 100 year old red pine which covers the 14 ft vaulted ceiling and far wall in the living room. The pine floors and moldings throughout give a cozy, cottage feeling to a city residence. A brick fireplace (gas) warms the entire area with the charm of yesteryear. The 13 foot L-shaped sofa includes a hide-a-bed for extra sleeping space if necessary.
The kitchen is a chef's dream with plenty of granite counter space, a large well-lit island with its own wine fridge and stocked spice rack, and a 5 burner Bertazzoni gas stove. The heated tile floors and appliances are surrounded by 100 year old red pine cabinets and drawers, keeping the old charm alongside modern technology and lighting. A large window looks onto the market while you prepare your meals, and a long 10 man table waits for you in the adjacent dining area when you are ready to eat.
In the immense bathroom you will find the steel claw foot tub which came with the home over 100 years ago. There is a separate walk-in shower, and heated floors (including the shower) will make for happy feet! The laundry area lies just beyond this room and provides some extra storage.
The master bedroom is very large with ample closets and a balcony where you can sit to look down the street at the water and green of the canal area. The smaller bedroom is right beside it. With the bedrooms and the fold out bed in the living room you could sleep up to 6 people if necessary.
This home comes fully equipped:
-linens, dishes, cutlery, cookware
- Wifi internet
-1 parking spot and free parking on the street
Maison Marlo is across the street from the Lachine Market. A fruit and vegetable store and a wonderful cheese store are open year long, and in the summer the open air market offers fresh daily produce, herbs and flowers. There are three cafés/restaurants within one block, and rue Notre-Dame offers many services within walking distance including more restaurants, a hardware store, convenience stores/depanneurs, hair salons and many more. We are 10 minutes from the airport and from 15 minutes from downtown Montreal by car. There is also bus access to various parts of Montreal close by, including an express bus downtown.
We are also situated one block away from the Lachine waterfront and old canal. This area is very active and is a wonderful place to exercise, explore, eat or relax. It features the largest Marina in Quebec, boat rentals of many types, long bicycle paths which connect to the Vieux Port downtown. Along this path are mature trees as well as open green spaces with walking paths and picnic tables along the way to relax or watch the sunset on Lac St-Louis. There are numerous festivals and free activities offered in this area throughout the summer as well. The road along the lake's shore is dotted with historical sites, antique stores, restaurants, bars, majestic churches and interesting architecture.
This is a vibrant and beautiful area to explore, and the experience is completed by returning to the charm, comfort and open space provided by Maison Marlo. We love our home, and hope you will too. We are happy to share with you! Visit the downstairs unit as well :VRBO.com 443889
