Escape to the beautiful lakefront community of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, just over an hour north of Montreal in the ancient Laurentian Mountains well known for it's vast forests, lakes but also endless recreational opportunity, and vibrant cultural offerings.
This three story Franco-Canadiana house was once an English boarding school for boys and has since been lovingly converted to a beautiful and comfortable home with traditional French Canadian styling and modern luxuries. There are three large bedrooms. On the main floor, you will find a huge contemporary kitchen, with all amenities required for a discerning stay-at-home chef. The open concept layout leads from the kitchen to the large dining area and great room, complete with a real wood burning stone fireplace. Relax in comfort with spectacular views of the famous Lac des Sables on one side, and untouched Quebec forest on the other.
There are two very spacious and modern bathrooms, one on the main floor with a large, fabulous Jacuzzi tub, and the other on the third floor, a lovely shower. There is an abundance of storage and closet space throughout the house. Entry from the lower level provides a great place to clean up your gear, store your skis, hiking boots, or snow shoes. There is also a large games room, great for kids or playful adults, with a huge table tennis facility set up for hours of fun on a rainy day! There is a secondary living room on this floor as well, which offers comfy sofas and additional sleeping areas if you have a really large group.
In addition to the living room, kitchen and dining area, the main floor of the house also contains a spacious full bathroom and a bedroom with two twin beds.
The third floor of the house consists of a small sitting and reading area, as well as a huge master bedroom with a wonderful king size bed. The views from this room are serene and will give you the impression of sleeping amongst the trees. A second bedroom consisting of two double beds is also located on this floor.
Adjacent to the house is a small art studio for the owner of the property who lives in the house next door. It is a private, bright studio, often with colourful pieces of regionally inspired pieces on display or in development.
While staying here, enjoy direct access to Lac des Sables, with a private path linking the property to the shore of the lake where you will find a dock with a paddle boat and kayaks for your use.
