About our home
Amazingly bright, open space, post modern 2700 sq ft three storey house in the historical, quaint and trendy neighborhood of Mile-End on the Plateau Mt. Royal. There is a sun deck on the second floor and a beautiful garden with covered patio on the ground floor. It's on a quiet residential street, yet the area boasts many cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques as well as cultural venues for theater, concerts and repertory cinema. An easy walk to downtown Montreal and the Mount Royal Park.

Mile-End, voted one of top three districs to live in Montreal by the Montreal Mirror, is a quaint yet contemporary quarter teaming with cafés (Café Olimipico and Caffè in Gamba vie for best espresso), bars, restaurants--from the famous Wilensky's Light Lunch to upscale Greek to vegan--traditional and specialty grocery shops, boutiques, galleries,and hot yoga spots -- not to mention great bakeries and Montreal-style bagels served fresh and hot. Many of its residents are eco-friendly and artistic -- in fact, Mile-End is said to have the most artists per capita on the island. Thus, in summer, it is not unusual to see guitarists strumming a tune here and there, taking in the estival heat. Well, because Mile-End borders the mountain, Tam-tam, a gathering of randoms drumming up a jam session, is a Sunday tradition both for neighborhood residents and others around the city. In addition to having a creative populace littered with writers, musicians, actors, shop owners and yoga instructors (to name a few), Mile-End is the epitome of Montreal's well talked about multicultural standard. Historically, Greek and Orthodox Jewish with a sprinkle of Italian, now Mile-End includes Montrealers of all origins such as Caribbean, African, Asian, European and Latin American. Mile-End's cultural and socioeconomic mix also make it an interesting place to take walks. Three of Montreal's main artery streets, St-Laurent, St-Urbain and Avenue du Parc, can get you to and from Old Montreal straight through Chinatown on to Little Italy, which is a ten-minute walk north on St-Laurent Street. In-between there are lots of museums and cultural festivities to takes, especially in summer. Once the sun sets, Mile-Enders ready themselves to dine and dance on any one of the aforementioned streets in restaurants or house parties. Joining them is just a matter of slipping into something chicly cool (preferably black) and finding a convenient spot.
