You've seen them before. Mid-century bungalows tucked among the grand mansions on Westmount's steep streets.
But this one deserves a second look. Behind the traditional brick facade, this seemingly squat little house for sale in Montreal Island's most prestigious area hides a striking, modern interior.
The humble bungalow's transformation is the work of Montreal architect Stéphanie Vallières, who conducted a 12-month renovation on the four-bedroom home, real estate broker Saguy Elbaz told MTL Blog.
Upstairs, an open living, dining and sleek kitchen area looks out upon a comfortable backyard and, below, a dramatic staircase that serves as an architectural focal point.
Themes of light, transparency and blocks of neutral tones guide the eyes through the open spaces and create a cozy environment.
Down the museum-worthy staircase is another living and entertainment area illuminated by natural light that reaches down from the skylights above.
The house is on the market for $3.4 million and comes completely furnished, according to the listing.
