Estate of the Day: $6.9 Million French Villa in Montreal, Canada


La Closerie Bizard Island – A true oasis, this very elegant French villa style property ($6,980,000) is located on an immense riverfront estate. The remarkable copper roof, the local fieldstone siding and the abundant fenestration give this house a very particular charm. Zoned equestrian, minutes away from 3 championship golf courses. La Closerie This remarkable property offers a reassuring presence with its elegant and classic outline and its well proportioned volumes reminiscent of the architecture typical of Western France. It features three distinctive parts: a long and narrower building on three levels, and two wings, one on either side of the main body. Beyond the porch, a vast entry hall with an adjacent library opens to the main family room boasting very high ceilings. The living room, dining room and immense kitchen all give access to two immense terraces where one can enjoy meals or admire the sun, the very large garden and its private riverbanks. On the first floor, a mezzanine leads to the bedrooms and to the master bedroom suite. La Closerie is in close harmony with its environment. Everyday life revolves around the rhythm of seasons. In the winter, the great room with 24 French doors will be the gathering place while in the summer, the large terraces, the areas around the pool and by the water will become the main gathering spots. Each of the 97 doors windows, positioned with accuracy, frames a piece of landscape or captures a moment in time. Classicism, simple lines, generous spaces, a direct relation with its environment, and privacy: as many qualities and signs of the emergence of a current and original architecture of which La Closerie is one of the most vivid examples.
