In recent years, Place d'Youville was the theatre of major archeological digs. Located between Saint-Pierre and McGill streets, in front of the first fire station, which today houses the Centre d'histoire de Montréal, Place d'Youville constitutes the inaugural site of Ville-Marie. Fort Ville-Marie was built there at first, and Château de Callière a few decades later.
Parliament of United Canada
At the western end of Place d'Youville was St. Ann's Market, built in 1832. Twelve years later, it was the site of United Canada's first permanent parliament. Important laws were passed there, such as the one establishing responsible government in 1848. But one year later, a violent fire ravaged the building. The two parliamentary libraries were razed. The digs of recent years uncovered, among other things, artefacts that will find a new home at Esplanade de la Cité, underground galleries that will be accessible to visitors. The exhibits will provide a better understanding of the city's founding period and will make the area even more popular.
That context promises to create added value for the unit we're presenting to you this month. Located at 361 Place d'Youville, adjacent to the new cultural environnement, this property already stands out by its luxurious period architecture. Its impressive windows give it maximum luminosity, and its multi-level living area measures 102 square metres.
The brick and stone walls add warmth and history to this splendid property, and perfectly match the décor, on which we spent a great deal of effort. The kitchen, open on the dining and living rooms, is equipped with a gas stove. The bedroom and bathroom are set back on the landing for privacy and tranquillity. As you can see, the layout and furnishings are exquisite, truly exclusive, and worth a visit on their own.
