1216 Cours du Général de Montcalm
Suites Laurier, Citadelle and Cartier
Excerpt from Quebec Architecture Archives;
1216, on General-De Montcalm enjoys an enviable position in the urban fabric. The house is located in a prestigious area of the city of Quebec. It is situated between the Grande Allee and the Plains of Abraham, two poles of activities that make this area a very taking place for both Quebec residents and visitors. The house of 1216, on General-De Montcalm possesses good value of authenticity, despite its change of use in the mid-20th century. The exterieur has not experienced any significant changes that affect its appearance. Apart from a fireplace that has lost its upper part and replacement of windows skylights, all original elements still seem in place, which is exceptional for a house more than a century.
Located in the center of this monumental way, possesses a good value position and heritage. Possessing excellent architectural value, this house more than a century, also has good seniority values, history and position.
Its external architecture neo-Queen Anne style makes it a rare and representative example of this stylistic trend in Quebec. It is therefore an architectural work that deserves to be Retained. (Patri-Arch, 2013).
Suites Jardin and Belle
Excerpt from Quebec Architecture Archives
This building is estimated to be built between 1882-1884 and is simpler then ones on Grande Allee, but likely that it is the architect Joseph-Ferdinand Peachy who has designed these buildings with mansard roofs. Approaching traditional architecture epoque of wood and brick, their location on the streets and their purely utilitarian purpose does not require an elaborate and omementee architecture. In 1900’s it is hypothised some changes were made where the stilted roof has been replaced by floor mansard roof. Thereafter, the edifice would have been extended to the north and we could add I'oriel rounded facade.
The house is enhanced by its position on the place Montcalm leading from the Grande Allee to Plains of Abraham. The main door is sheltered by a small roof-shaped triangular pediment. The volumetry of the house, with its round oriel at the center with three windows per floor, however, is very successful.
Suites Frontenac and Versailles
Excerpt from Quebec Architecture ArchivesFrench - Victorian residence beautifully decorated and features a bay window at the very slender coiffed roof. The residence has retained most of its original decor. The stable has maintained its originality and not transformed into a garage when horse carriages were replaced by automobiles. Its strong degree of authenticity helps to highlight all of the Bilodeau block. Aware that this set is erected on the highest part of the city, Peachy takes advantage of the situation by enhancing the effect of height in elevation, making it monumental.
