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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Old Montreal, Montreal, QC, Canada:
After viewing several properties in Old Montreal with an agent, I saw the sign on the window For Sale! The agent did not even have it listed. Visisited the property ,in the perfect location for me, and on a lovely greenbelt park, steps from the Point a Calliere museum and the Old Port, I just knew it was MY home immediately! After researching the heritage of the building, originally owned by Pierre Berthelet, one of the largest landowners in Montreal at the time, found out to my great durprise that he had the same birthday as me, April 15! Talk about karma. It was mine.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Large open plan, with separate bedroom, stone walls, original old wood beams , only 3 apartments in the building, one per floor, mine on the first floor not street level, 12 grand windows with lots of light! Great bones and made lots of improvements.
