597 Lakeshore (2004)_160Maison Napoléon Valois
Constructed by Napoléon Valois in 1890, this building is one of the most remarkable and intact farmhouses in the Beaconsfield area. It is topped by an imposing mansard roof covered with crimped sheet metal with a breaking slope itself covered with black slate cut into a fish scale design. As they were originally, the exterior walls are made with lapped joint wood siding. Thanks to careful maintenance, this residence still has the architectural components of its period, such as elaborate dormers and the large porch surrounding the ground floor.
