TL;DR This insanely beautiful home in the Old Port is now up for sale and it is simply stunning. Check out the pics and walk-through video below.

This home in Montreal is the definition of luxury. It's listed for $6.25 million and, honestly, I'm not surprised. It's got an insane view of Marché Bonsecours and is over 6,000 square feet in size.

I can't even imagine a more classic Montreal home... but honestly the outside does NOT do this place justice.

So. Much. Exposed. Brick.

Also, I definitely counted at least 3 fireplaces in the walk through video... toasty.

With six bedrooms, maybe you just need to find some wealthy friends and split the place?

And can we talk about how many chairs this place has?!

This place is more than just a pretty face... it's also got a commercial space on the main floor that is probably a pretty sweet little piece of potential income.

Built in 1870, the Vieux Montreal charm is insane. 

It looks like they've got old church pews lining this hallway. 

I love all the strange and old-timey accents this place has... like why is there a random wrought iron gate in the stairwell?

And why do I love it so much?!

Look at this view!!!

The location is definitely one of the best parts of this place... Check out this stunning walk through video and just imagine coming home to this place every day after work.


Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
