The Hobbit House on Cote-des-Neiges
There’s this ‘little’ brick house on Rue Guy – (not so little actually, but cute compared to the big mansions all around here). I’ve always enjoyed it’s ‘hobbit house’ feeling. It has these strange tiny entrances — two narrow doors, set at right angles to each other, but with only one set of steps serving both. Very strange. Also odd to have a cocky little minaret – despite the fact it’s only a single story structure. Maybe I’m looking at the back door, and it’s actually quite grand from the other direction.
But in any case, here’s a drawing of my favorite house on Rue Guy. (Correction! – actually at: 3547 Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges – Guy changes names where it goes uphill at Sherbrooke – thanks Suzanne)
