Charles Daudelin was a French Canadian sculptor and painter known for integrating art into public spaces. An architect for the Montreal Botanical Gardens, he was employed by the Quebec Government for the design of large public parks.
A labour of love, he built this house with his wife in 1951 and kept on expanding and modernizing the property in multiple phases with impressive architects, until his death in 2001. His gem of a house spent little time on the market, that by the time we went to press with this post, the beautiful home had sold!
Seemingly tucked away in the woods, the scenery around the house looks cozy and woodsy, yet is designed with a modern feel. This home was listed at $2,688,00 on Sothebys Canada.
This rare property’s standout qualities primarily include its large windows, making its style a bright and open concept. It contains 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room, a living room, a kitchen, swimming pool, an artist studio and even a wine cellar, amongst more. This house also boasts an incredible lot and gardens that were landscaped by George Daudelin.
Located at the heart of Kirkland right off Chemin Ste-Marie, it feels as if you’re in a secret environment tucked away from the city, filled with tranquility.
