Two or more storey - 3844 Rue Drolet
A one-of-a-kind historic house that embodies the spirit and soul of the Plateau. Has belonged to the same family since 1933! Although it shows obvious signs of its age (the building requires major renovations).https://www.mtlblog.com/real-estate/canada/qc/montreal/a-house-on-montreals-rue-drolet-is-for-sale-in-need-of-a-loving-dreamer-photos
It's quite a project, but a dream that is within your reach.
One of the most photographed houses in Montreal's photo banks!
For lovers of century-old homes as well as the Plateau's legendary authenticity and heritage!
It will certainly need love as well great care and respect for its architecture, given its many period features (circa 1875):
-Original yellow worked and finished doors
-Slate-tiled front mansard roof
-All wood casement windows
-Small portico at the basement level that opens onto:
-Large room at the basement level with a 9'2'' ceiling (serves as a kitchen and dining room, with the stone foundation (36--40 in. high)
Could very well be converted into a large family room or living room with a rear door leading directly to the intimate, leafy garden.
-Magnificent staircase and balustrade in varnished natural wood, leading to the ground floor, as well as a 2nd original staircase that leads to the upstairs bedrooms.
-Brick wall next to the 2 staircases leading to the ground and second floors
On the ground floor
- A large double living room with high ceilings, large windows in each room, generous ceiling mouldings, original knotted pine lath floors.
Could be converted into a modern kitchen and its dining room
-Long hallway (26 ft. long) with beautiful full front and back doors opening onto their respective balconies (the back door leads down to the garden)
On the bedroom floor:
-Pine lath flooring
-Small casement windows with stale gables in both of the front bedrooms
-Master bedroom with a large window that opens up on the garden
-Bathroom with shower only that was modernized over the years
In short, a small haven of peace with a lovely and intimate green garden!
House located in one of the Plateau's most sought-after neighbourhoods!
