Property description

The Maison Versailles on Grand Allée is a classic English style luxury home, circa 1880’s, designed by famed architect Joseph-Ferdinand Peachy (1830 – 1903), known mostly for his religious architecture. The interior décor is a splendid example of the eclectic Second Empire style epitomizing wealth and prestige at the time. Part of a richly decorated line of row houses with bay windows and turrets, it can be seen in 19th century photographs off the Plains of Abraham. Close to the St Lawrence and on Grand Allée (the Champ Élysées of Quebec) it is literally steps from all the night-life, cafes, restaurants and major tourist destinations: Winter Carnival, Summer Music Festival, La Citadelle, Parliament buildings, Chateau Frontenac, the many specialty shops. Have all the modern comforts in historic Quebec at the Maison Versailles, your home away from home.

It was owned by Séminaire de Québec appointed by the King of France and than the french aristocrats.
