Welcome to a magnificent Spanish style, three-storey detached home situated within the prestigious and high-demand neighbourhood of Saint Lambert. Featuring a stucco
exterior, and a landscaped front yard - the stately portico and its large wooden entry door offer a befitting invitation into this architecturally striking masterpiece.
The grand marble-tiled entrance opens into a cross-hall floor plan featuring two of the home’s impressive principal rooms - a formal living room impeccably finished with a beamed ceiling, a wood fireplace and French doors opening up to the family den area –
and a stately dining room graced with walnut wood coffered walls and two suspended Schonbek Crystal Chandeliers. This gracious room also features one of the home’s favorite areas, the bar – a room uniting the dining room, the Baker’s pantry and the kitchen. The parties do not start around the kitchen island but rather in this appointed room with its giant globe under the dome-shaped ceiling. This piece dates from 1933
during a major renovation but was completely redone during the current owners’ renovations in 2007.
Off the main hall is a beautifully appointed powder room with a unique wallpaper on all walls – the hall then leads into the chef’s kitchen and the sunken family room. The exceptional design of the custom-made kitchen showcases great cabinetry storage, a Wolf 4-burner gas stove, a Sub-Zero fridge, a Thermador double oven, a tiled backsplash and a custom-made breakfast bench that can accommodate 8-10 people around an oval quartz table with stainless steel trumpet-shaped legs. On this level, we can also access the outdoor 3-season veranda which is adjacent to an outdoor kitchen and bathroom.
The second level is accessed by two staircases on two extremities of the house. One of the staircases links both the left and the right wings – the right being a spacious office area completed with a family media room and a gym space accessed by oversized glass doors. This wonderful family and entertaining space also features a walk-out onto a large terrace overlooking the magnificent backyard with its mature trees and
The left wing carries us to the master bedroom which is also finished with the original
hardwood flooring - while a neutral colour palette and the abundant natural lighting of a
south-facing exposure gives this private retreat a fresh, airy aura. Its ensuite bathroom
showcases a cast iron bathtub, heated floors, a lovely vanity complete with black quartz
counters for a striking, yet elegant, contrast. There is also direct access to the walk-in
The other generously sized bedroom on this level features a wardrobe and a marble mantle wood fireplace. The 2nd bathroom is all in marble with heated floors in elegant marble mosaics, a large walk-in shower featuring a semi-glazed wall, a rain outlet from the ceiling, 2 water jets on the side and Perrin & Rowe taps from England.
The second level carries you to the fully finished attic with a separate wooden staircase. The attic is home to 3 additional bedrooms and another complete bathroom which includes a cast iron clawfoot bath, ceramic mosaic tiles on the floor and charming original sink and toilet.
The backyard, a true oasis, is immense, fully fenced, and has a lush lawn and perennial
plantings to balance the impressive hardscaping and a salt water 18’x40’ in-ground pool,
as well as a cabana featuring comfortable lounge seating.
Walking distance to St-Lambert village, the commuter train to Montreal, bus to
downtown and/or metro Longueuil, departure from St-Lambert station to New York with the Amtrack train – and soon to the REM in Brossard.
