Maisons Laprise of Montmagny, Quebec, has joined landowner and developer Jeannot Clément of Mont-Tremblant to offer modern architectural homes with an unusual feature – rooftop terraces with spa and kitchen for outdoor cooking. The design is by Mario Adornetto, considered to be one of Quebec’s premier architectural designers of high-end homes. But buyers in this project, Les Belvédères Tremblant, won’t have to pay high end prices. They can have the benefits of a reputed designer for as low as $199,000 although the price can run up as high as $550,000, depending on how much or how little a buyer is willing to be part of its construction. Buyers can simply buy a one acre lot for $45,000 to $59,000 and build on their own, with guidelines providing parameters. They can also buy a lot and a Maisons Laprise “kit”, all the parts for the homes, for about $199,000 and have a contractor assemble it on the building lot. Or buyers can opt for a turn-key home for $375,000 to $550,000 or choose a shared building plan with Maison Laprise.
Maisons Laprise builds pre-manufactured homes in its Montmagny plant. The quality of construction is said to be high, to Novaclimat 2.0 energy efficiency standards. The homes have approximately 2200 square feet of living space on three levels including that of the roof terrace, with bathroom on each level. The homes will please buyers looking for contemporary homes with lots of window area taking full advantage of nature’s surroundings. The project is situated in a forest area dominated by maple trees, on chemin Clermont-Dubois, off highway 117 southbound, in Mont-Tremblant adjacent to La Conception.
The low density development, named for its relaxing belvedere offering great views, has its own paths. The developer says these are part of the common spaces of what is described as “horizontal co-ownership”. He adds that 86 per cent of the land will be kept natural, more than the town’s minimum standard of 60 per cent.
The project has 53 lots to be developed in six phases. Of the first eight in the first phase, six are still presently available.
