Canadian style country house located in Ste-Agathe Rang 8 kilometres from the village. 87,000 square feet of land bounded by the front road and a stream at the back.

History: The original house was built in 1851 and is therefore in pieces; in 1989, the entire building was turned over to face the road, then moved to be placed on a cast concrete foundation. Everything was redone, electricity (entrance of 200amps), plumbing, windows, floors were replaced from one end to the other joists included. The finish as well as the insulation has been replaced and a new roof has been installed, a new part has been added to the old one, with a dimension of 14 feet by 16 feet, the original square of the house is about 23 x 25 feet. I did almost all the construction work myself, which allowed me to add a personal touch, and thus make the house a special character and is also unique. Thus: the roofs are designed so that the surpluses that are self-supporting, leaned on the walls and are strong enough to have withstood winters without the addition of poles. The basement, which is not completely finished, is cast concrete and sitting on the rock, and no posts are required for the floor support. It is therefore possible to use the most part in the whole, you can even get in with a car. All cabinets are cedar as well as those in the bathroom. The exterior finish is made of 7/8" thick cedar panelling so much stronger and more durable than any modern finish, such decline of masonite, vinyl or aluminum;

The terrain is much more lengthwise than the width and therefore, makes sure that there are no neighbors nearby, two-thirds of the land are wooded and steep, on the other hand near the house and around, the configuration allowed me to have a greenhouse of 22 x 30 feet, and so to do vegetable cultivation there, the climate and proximity made gardening shorter in season, the heat was missing; on the other hand, the results in the amazing greenhouse, I carried several trips from Arab land to make the soil fertile. The treatment field dates back ten years and an artesian well drilled in the rock at 85 feet deep provides a very good, albeit slightly ferrous water supply, the flow tested continuously for a week 24 hours a day. The place is not exposed to heavy traffic since the rank Ste-Agathe is a dead end, so traffic is local.

I wanted to give my property a special value, and it was not for the purpose of selling it, but for my own well-being and satisfaction. Although limited in financial means, I wanted to do something that gives me a sense of personal satisfaction; I did not want a house that, after going through a period of more than one hundred and fifty years, has a modern appearance. I have nothing against new materials, but it would be like taking an antique car and installing plastic bumpers there.

So I made part of the windows, as well as the door enclosures and all the woodwork are made of cedar, oak and teak wood. On the second floor, three quarters of the floors are made of epoxy coated bottled pine. Unfortunately, I was unable to complete the work that I was planning to continue because of unforeseen circumstances, but I emphasize how all the work was carried out over a period of several years; that is why I would like to answer for myself about the work that was done; photos were taken for personal use which prove the veracity of what I say, and which clearly state all the steps surrounding the work. I think I'm the best person to sell my house by being able to answer all the questions.

Here I offer the opportunity to acquire a property that has long-term value and at a more than reasonable price when we compare the cost of a new house of the same size and built today.

It was with a bit of bitterness that I could not finish what I did. I am not a wealthy person, there is room for improvement and still a lot of possibilities, so this is not a completely finished house, and as one could say ?turnkey? and the price is therefore set in consequence.


Please note: The measurements given are not checked to the nearest inches, the square of the house dates back to 1851. Subsequently, a second bathroom began to be arranged on the second floor (the toilet is functional).
