If you dream of moving to the Plateau Mont-Royal, you might not find anything more special than this Montreal property for sale.
The primary structure is a lovely Victorian-style duplex with a view of the popular Parc La Fontaine right across the street.
But the real treasures are hiding in the back.
A third door at the front of the main building leads to a long corridor that opens onto an expansive, manicured courtyard.
In the back, there's a separate workshop with its own kitchen and bathroom and a charming little cottage at the very end of the property.

Broker Sandra Angelozzi told MTL Blog that the duplex units currently house students.
Skylights, transoms, and a solarium flood the spaces with light.
Both units exude a particularly Montreal type of coziness.
Some characteristically Plateau features shine through in the apartments: detailed moulding, exposed wood beams, planks and brick walls, and tall ceilings.
But the semi-detached cottage is in a class of its own: the open first floor puts its wood beams, panels, and floors on full display.
Upstairs, according to the listing, there's a bedroom, boudoir, and balcony.
The enormous courtyard tucked among the odd shapes of the adjacent buildings is a piece of "countryside in the city."
The glass façade of the workshop maximizes views of the surrounding garden and patio.
The workshop — ideal for working from home — has its own kitchen and bathroom.
