The Most Architecturally Stimulating Homes Sold in Quebec in 2012

So, it’s true, we aren’t on LA’s Hollywood Hills or San Diego’s La Jolla Shores, where every other home is nothing short of an architectural masterpiece. But right here in Quebec, contemporary design is far from foreign to the people who live here; after all, Montreal did host Expo 67, the most visually stimulating building exhibition of the 20th century.

Exposure to such structurally brilliant work had an outlasting impact on the “Peuple Québécois” and yearly some truly unique and “one-of-a-kind” properties go up for sale, making one wonder: “How did they build that and why? How much is worth this home? And how was this asking price even determined to begin with?” Well, I’ll tell you this: in 2012, there were some really distinctive homes that sold across the province for prices that surely weren’t Californian.  

Let’s have a look at a few of these chef’s d’oeuvre-type residences. Keep in mind that my selection was based on originality and not beauty.  Beauty is in fact in the eye of the beholder, so I’ll let you decide which takes your breath away!

What’s notable? The selling price! Can you imagine the value of these homes if they were magically transported to Westmount or Outremont?
