If you've spent any time in Montreal's Old Port, you've probably walked along Rue St-Paul Est, located directly across from Marché Bonsecours. The street is lined with galleries, restaurants, inns and shops that boast gorgeous historic-looking exteriors. But did you know inside one of those buildings — atop a storefront and restaurant — is a mansion that looks like a hidden palace that was frozen in time?\nIt's true.\nAnd we have photo evidence to prove it because the property is for sale... which means if you have $6.25 million lying around, the 12,000 square foot 19th-century rowhouse could be yours — six bedrooms, three bathrooms, terrace and all.\nEditor's Choice: A Quebec Landlord Has To Pay Over $13k For Refusing To Rent To A Family With A Service Dog\nThe property also houses an inn, a restaurant and a vacant commercial space so there's income potential to make up for the hefty dent this purchase would put in one's wallet.\nIf you don't have extra millions to spare, then you can simply fantasize about what it would feel like to live in or visit the home.\nSpoiler: You'd feel like royalty in 1870 if they'd had electricity back then.\nBut, rest assured, electricity is not the only modern touch.
