Montreal is home to a number of weird, whacky and wonderful homes but the "roller coaster house" (known to others as the "molar house") is truly iconic. Since the property backs onto Rue Fleet, chances are high that you've driven past it and pointed it out, marvelling at its exterior design. But what does it look like on the inside?

If you've always wondered about the interior, you finally have an opportunity to peek inside. Located on Place Fallbrook in Hampstead, the roller coaster house is currently for sale. This means that — thanks to a real estate listing from Team Ann Malka — we are privy to the photos and features of the unique six-bedroom residence, which is going for an asking price of $4.95 million.

There are six bedrooms, five bathrooms and one powder room. Whoever gets the master bedroom actually gets a whole floor to themselves with what the listing describes as "private quarters." The remaining bedrooms are on the garden level plus one in the basement.

Montreal Homes Prices Are Set To Be Even More Unaffordable In 2022

In the rest of Canada, they'll get even higher, according to a new forecast.

If you were planning to buy a home in Montreal, you might want to do it quickly because next year, you might not even be able to afford it. According to Royal LePage's home price forecast, the median home price in Greater Montreal is set to increase by 8% — to $564,800 — by the end of 2022.

The 8% increase represents the aggregate forecast for home prices in 2022. This factors in both single-family homes and condominiums. Royal LePage forecasts detached single-family homes will see the largest price increase.
