Property description

La Maison Berthelet, a superb one bedroom loft of 1100 square feet, is situated on the first floor of a circa 1806 stone heritage home classified as one of the oldest in the Montreal historical district.

Just facing the acclaimed Pointe a Calliere archeological museum on Place d'Youville, experience true old-world charm with hand-hewn beams, wood flooring and exposed stone masonry along with the modern conveniences of today.

Twelve french windows offer you bright and airy views onto the square and cobblestone streets just outside the front door. Listen out for the occassional horse drawn carriages that pass below.

The living area is well appointed with ultra comfortable sofas and leather fauteuil club chairs. A cosy wood burning fireplace adds a warm ambiance on cool afternoons and evenings. An antique dining table accommodates six people in full view of a second wood burning stove.There is a well equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and a hidden laundry closet.

Cable television with both French and English speaking channels is provided. VHS and DVD players with numerous tapes and DVD's for your entertainment, a stereo system and many CD's are provided. The large down sofa has a comfortable queen-size mattress for additional guests or children occupying the apartment.

Car: Not Necessary

Located in the heart of Old Montreal,our loft-style apartment is located on a greenbelt park in a 1806 listed historic building just a few steps from the acclaimed Pointe-A-Calliere Museum of Archeology and History.

We are a 5 minute walk from either Place Victoria or Place des Arts metro stations. All of the amazing Underground City of Montreal can be accessed from either of these. Great in the winter months to escape the chilly weather or during the warmer months to get out of the heat.

One of Montreals popular BIXI bike rental locations is just a short block from the door. All amenities including either IGA or Metro supermarkets, drug stores(Jean Coutou or PharmaPrix), banks, coffee shops, and numerous great restaurants are within a few minutes of the door.
