This Montreal West Island House Is The Ultimate Summer Escape Destination

New, old, and an awesome pool by the river.
This Montreal West Island House Is The Ultimate Summer Escape Destination

What was once a 200 year old fully stone Quebec house now stands as the Bord-du-Lac House, the perfect modern Montreal summer home. I mean, just look at that pool.

Rather than do away with the original stone structure, architect Henri Cleinge decided to compliment the historic house with a brand new construction. Meant to express the passage of time, the two homes are linked by a bridge in the giant living room.

Expansive, sleek, a blend of old and new architectural elements, and I know you can't stop picturing chilling in that giant living room and tanning by the epic pool. It's okay, I'm right there with you.

How do you like the Bord-du-Lac House?
