{real estate heaven}

Any one identify with me when I confess to searching MLS online listings for fun on a regular basis? I'm not in the market for a new home, I just love to know what's on the market and at what price points. When I came across the beautiful home below I'm pretty sure I gasped out loud. To quote the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw, 'I've died and gone to real estate heaven!'


I think my favorite part is that this beautifully renovated historic Federal-style mansion located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada was built in 1909!  The 8,500 square foot mansion boasts a spacious modern interior that includes a gourmet kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, 5 bedrooms, 8 custom fireplaces, 7 panoramic “gallery” areas, a home theater, gym, front courtyard, and a rooftop terrace. It is listed at $7,875,000. The restoration is done so well that by looking at it, I would never have known that this charming mansion was built over 100 years ago.



Kinda almost died when I saw these herringbone floors:








Serious gorgeousness! I know the home is completely empty, but with those bones can you only imagine how fun it would be to decorate this place?

I am loving the whole Georgian feel of the place. The bathrooms are wonderful.

My too girl- I stalk MLS WAY too much. This is a real beauty- love the glass solarium, herringbone floors and the insane kitchen.

Real Estate heaven indeed! I'm guilty of this habit too. The kitchen is a dream come true! Who am I kidding, the whole house is a dream come true!

Real estate heaven, true. Would take a lifetime to decorate it...at least I have no worries about where to put my books and I can see some huge mosaic panels in there too.

Wowsers! That is one seriously gorgeous house! The floors are amazing (esp. the herringbone floor), and the coffered ceiling is totally fab. Oh, to have the money to buy AND decorate this house...!!
