Property descriptionThis iconic heritage home, a rare gem, is the second oldest building in Westmount. Located on 'The old Cte Road' in a country-like setting, this home bridges the past and the present. This one of a kind stone home sits on more than 21,000 sf of land with 3 bdrms and 1 bth. Ever dreamed of owning a piece of history? Do not miss this opportunity.Welcome to the 178 Cte-Saint-Antoine Road. This unique house was part of what was known as the "Metcalfe Terrace", a row of four identical stone cottages, of which only two remain. Built in the mid-1840s by Moses Juday Hayes, a renowned engineer, farmer, theatre owner, magistrate, and police chief whose father emigrated from New York to Montreal in 1763. The house has been owned by three generations of the Goode family for close to 130 years. Today the house retains its original form and Regency-style colonial architecture; it remains almost as it was when it was built 180 years ago. The house offers a living area of over 2170 square feet on three-levels including the garden level walk-out basement. Among its unique elements, we find a four-slope roof with a wide pavilion and a chimney in the centre. Its neoclassical architectural elements include the wooden corner pilasters, decorative window lintels, and the portico. Its green wood trellis fence is the only survivor of the many which once lined both sides of the Cte-Saint-Antoine road, and appears to be about a century old. This historic home and its vast land offer a great opportunity for the new acquirer to restore it and bring it back to life. The architecture, the attention to detail and the solid craftsmanship throughout this one of a kind house cannot be found elsewhere. It is sure to be treasured by its next owner.
