Urban Planning

15 Lakeshore (2008)_160Built in 1912, this house has a hipped roof with a single dormer window facing the street.  The original double windows on the first floor have been maintained and the original balcony remains on the two sides of the house. The charm of this architecturally interesting house was preserved thanks to the efforts and determination of the owners.

498 Lakeshore (2007)_160This Tudor/Georgian-style house was designed in 1932 by architect L.N. Booth, a member of the famous Royal Institute of British Architects. Elements such as neo-Georgian vestibules flanked by Doric columns and crowned with pediments, a gabled roof, and cedar-shingled exterior give this house a remarkably elegant style, One of the most typical of that period in Beaconsfield, its excellent condition and richness of architectural heritage reflect the regular maintenance and respect for original architecture of all of its owners since construction.

383_Lakeshore (2005)_160This home built around 1830 by the Ladouceur and Pilon families is one of the few remaining stone farmhouses in Beaconsfield. The foundations date back to the late 17th century. It is built of solid masonry and granite fieldstone, has cornerstones and a double pitched roof with cedar shingles.

13_Thompson_Point (2006)_160The exceptional and unique character of this house, built in 1770, has earned it recognition as a Historical Monument by the Ministère des Affaires culturelles in 1975. Many historical data have confirmed that the house was mainly used for commercial activities, specifically the fur trade. Also, three “meurtières” on the front side indicate that the building could have been a fortified trading post. The foundation, between 69 and 91 cm thick, is composed of field stone. The basement roof is made completely of beams placed side by side as is the case for the Château Ramesay.

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.
