Where it is

1212 Montreal Ave. S.W.


The design

Built in 1983, this home features a mix of modern, antique and vintage elements that create a timeless appearance. The use of natural accents like wood trim, stone-clad fireplaces and whimsical, craftsman-style moulding in the kitchen sets the traditional feel. Antique-style furniture, touches of wallpaper and the dark, striking dining room offer a contrasting historic touch with modern appeal. The rest of the home boasts bright, neutral colour schemes and sleek modern materials like quartzite counters, designer lighting and window coverings.


What to love

This home is nestled on a tree-lined street and features more than 7,000 square feet of living space and a 0.25-acre lot. The home’s timeless vibe starts outside with a brick-clad exterior, clay tile roof and manicured lawn, and the feeling continues indoors with a blend of modern features.

The main floor boasts a bright and open-concept living room with a wood-burning fireplace for the perfect social space. The living room connects to a casual dining nook and charming kitchen through doorless doorways. The oversized quartzite island adds to the charm and functionality.

Adjacent, a more formal dining room awaits. With its own fireplace and dark wall colours, it’s a great space to host formal dinners with friends or guests. The formal living room offers space for nights of musical fun with room for a grand piano and leads to the adjoining library/retreat.

Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, including the primary, which boasts a spacious room with built-in features and a luxurious ensuite.

The basement is another fun haven with a media and games room, gym and wine cellar. Completing the property is a backyard oasis with landscaping, mature trees and colourful flower beds.


What to consider

The Mount Royal location is an ideal location as it’s close to schools, walkable and scenic parks, shopping, dining and more. The quiet, tree-lined street only adds to the charm and appeal for couples or families.
