True

Montreal is known for its unique architecture. But sometimes we find properties so unusual they stop us in our tracks — and that's exactly what these weird, wacky and wonderful Montreal houses will do for you.

If variety is the spice of life, then these quirky homes represent some of the spiciest Montreal real estate around.

Grand Piano House

Neighbourhood: Hampstead

Description: Some people call this home on Rue Belsize "the piano house" because it resembles an open grand piano. Others see a spaceship, a roller coaster or something from The Flinstones — so it's pretty much the Rorschach test of Art Deco architecture.

Tiny House

Neighbourhood: Saint-Henri

Description: Wee little houses wedged between two far bigger buildings are scattered around the city, but they never cease to surprise passersby.

Do you think living there would make you feel small and dainty? Or like you're a regular-sized person living in a world of giants?

Roller Coaster House

Neighbourhood: Hampstead

Description: No, you're not seeing double. This is SERIOUSLY a completely different house than the first one on the list. I know, right? People say this one looks more like a rollercoaster or a molar (yes, like the tooth). The interesting thing is it only really stands out from the back, visible from Rue Fleet.

If you're curious about the interior, this property was recently listed for sale so you can actually peek inside.

All Black Rowhouse

Neighbourhood: Ville Marie

Description: Given that Montreal is known for its colourful rowhouses as well as its brick duplexes and triplexes, it's actually more jarring to see a building that's been painted completely black. But there's also something so aesthetically pleasing about it — don't you think?

Neighbourhood: Cité du Havre

Description: You've probably stood by the docks at the Old Port, looked out across the water and marvelled at Habitat 67 — whether it's because you dream of living there or you think the housing complex is a strange-looking eyesore.

Either way, Moshe Safdie's Expo 67 Pavillion has become an iconic piece of Montreal architecture.

Mysterious Pink House

Neighbourhood: Saint-Henri

Description: This little pink house in Saint-Henri sits atop an abandoned factory along the Lachine Canal — and no one knows who put it there.

The owner of the site told MTL Blog that whoever risked their life to climb up, paint and hang curtains is "crazy."

But the lack of safety and 142-foot climb didn't stop the daredevil from decorating for Christmas with a tree that lit up at night.

Neighbourhood: Saint-Laurent

Description: From the ornate fountain on the lawn to the brass lion statues guarding the front door, this property is extra in every single way.

It's called Versace Manor because of the Versace mosaic swimming pool tiles, Versace marble tiles all over the house, Versace door handles, 9-foot-tall Versace curtain holders and Versace sink in the powder room.

The home was inspired by "Versace Greek Key" and was recently listed for sale for a cool $7,777,777.

Neighbourhood: Westmount

Description: This stone house with turrets on Rue Prospect could easily be from the set of Game of Thrones — or, you know, real-life 15th-century Europe. All that's missing is a moat!
