Maison à Montreuil

This is a house in Montreuil neighbourhood that I thought looked very nice. Almost as if one was in Normandy where this architectural style is common.

On dirait un peu une maison normande, vous ne trouvez pas ?

A house that comes close to poetry. Beautiful.

Please have a good Thursday.

Wouldn't it be delightful to take a tour inside?

It is beautiful but somewhat mysterious...perhaps it would look less so in the summertime. I like the way you have the sun sort of exploding behind it.

Seriously, though, can't you imagine all kinds of secret, strange, weird things going on in there? Perhaps it's a safe house for spies?

Makes sense to me. Which doesn't mean a whole lot, I know! :-)

I think the diagonal lines are extraordinary!!

Randy said...

That really is lovely. I can only imagine looking out that window at the top.

Very creative photo, well composed. The backlighting is perfect and the bare trees form a filter to our view... lovely!

It is a very unusual house, isn't it? It seems to borrow features from many different styles, but it doesn't belong to a single style.

Here, this would be a museum, a place people visit but no longer live in. I'm so glad it's still in use, and people are enjoying it!

I love that kind of detail!

I really like this house and it's style. Unusual, yet not.

PS: on my blog in the picture of Mt. Tainier the white building in the distance on the right is the hotel at Tulalip. MB

Oops I mean Mt. Rainier. Duh!!! MB

A somewhat exotic mansion, considered the place. I am sure I would love a place where this style is commen...

Quite Tudoresque (not a word, I know)... but that top floor window panel looks quite unique.

[I don't even know how to turn on a TV. Makes me a mass culture-moron. :-D ]

Oh I love it. It is so pretty and romantic.

EG Wow said...

I like the look of this home! I am imagining it surrounded by lovely landscaping.

Regina K said...

Does look like a home I would expect to find in Normandy.

SRQ said...

Pretty! I hope it's landscaped well too. I bet it's right out of a storybook in the winter covered in snow.

I missed your petite maison normande yesterday. :)
It's lovely. Wouldn't it be great fun to live in a place like that?

What a great roofline and I like the detail along the upper window.
