Reinterpreting Rural Living

Rising out over the steep terrain with awe-inspiring views over the valleys and Mount Orford, this holiday home in Quebec’s Eastern Townships is an electrifying addition to the forested landscape. 

Montreal based firm Nature Humaine, designed the home in two stacked, rectangular volumes that hug and cantilever out over the mountainside for an exhilarating sensation of floating among the trees.        . 

Inspired by the classic gable roofed barns of the region, the strikingly simple silhouette has re-interpreted the rural venacular with a contemporary twist and a zen-like neutral palette in slate grey and steel, contrasting pale wood, and pure black accents. The home’s interiors are minimalist and spare, allowing the geometric forms and the spectacular framed views to take center stage.  

Designed as an immersive experience, Nature Humaine created the project to influence your emotions and transform your interactions with the natural world.

Description

Perched on a rugged, natural plateau with far-away vistas of Mount Orford and the valley below, this holiday home in Quebec is in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. 

A strikingly bold silhouette modeled on the typical rural barn, the house juts out over the steep mountainside that slopes below.   

Working with Montreal based architectural firm Nature Humaine to translate the site’s rugged environment, the firm scrutinized the views, the light and the changing seasons to translate and synthesize it all into shapes, sequences, materials, and character in a sensitive and balanced design.

Characterized by two large stacked rectangles, the wooden clad upper floor is anchored into the mountain with a cantilevered concrete foundation and a gabled roofed rising high above the terrain, giving the sensation that the house is floating among the trees. 

The upper living spaces offer sweeping views that change with the seasons from long horizontal strip windows. Anchored by a polished steel fireplace, the living room and dining area flow towards the kitchen carved out of a central black dividing wall separating the spaces from the en suite master bedroom. There’s an additional double bedroom downstairs with room for four guests total.

Clad in black from the outside, the interiors are a cool, minimalist palette of slate grays, warm wood and dramatic black accents that add drama and sophistication.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV, laundry facilities, kitchen and bath amenities, private garaged parking. 

AROUND 

Quebec’s charming eastern Eastern Townships lie just thirty minutes from Montreal among the lakes and picturesque mountains and countryside.

Along the way are numerous small towns and lovely villages like nearby North Hatley and Eastman with quaint shops, gourmet restaurants, farmer’s markets, and the wine routes.

Nestled in the heart of the Missisquoi Valley, East Bolton is a charming mix of nature and history that includes the 19th century Bolton center and south Bolton surrounding lakes Brome, Magog and Memphremagog. The ethereal St-Benoit du Lac Abbey is a highlight of the region and dates back to the turn of the century, as is a stop along the Townships Trail.

For ski buffs, it’s a thirty minute drive in either direction to Mount Orford and Owls Head ski resorts for winter sports and summer hikes.

    Michelle’s home exceeded our expectations and her kindness and hospitality was so appreciated. The town of Borgarnes was such a great place for our family to explore. We absolutely loved the community pool. The proximity to many West Iceland attractions was also ideal. This adventure was truly a trip of a lifetime. We will miss Iceland and the positive energy and goodness of our wonderful host Michelle!

  • Jeanne and William, August 10, 2018

    The first thing I loved about our stay in Michelle’s beautiful home, was Michelle. She made sure we had everything that we needed, and was a generous and gracious hostess during our stay. Her home is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and the views are exceptional. The location was perfect for our day trips to Snaefellsness Peninsula and the surrounding area. I highly recommend staying at Michelle’s.

    Home was even more beautiful than in pictures. Very comfortable with spectacular view. Host went out of her way to ensure our every need was met. Her packet of information about the area was also very helpful.

    Michelle was a fantastic host! The place was really comfortable for six people, and the views were unbelievable. A couple of great restaurants in walking distance too.

    We had an incredible 2 night visit to Michelle’s home! It is located on the water, with amazing views of the water in two directions, and the mountains as a backdrop. The Airbnb photos don’t do it justice. Michelle’s art is everywhere…and it is really lovely. Michelle was so welcoming…with great communication, and giving us tips on where to tour. She met us upon arrival, and as a special treat, provided a tour of her art studio before we departed! Michelle also accommodated our request for non-feather bedding due to my wife’s allergies. The kitchen was great, and had all the spices you would ever want, along with various teas and coffee selections It was raining on one of the afternoons during our stay…and we really didn’t mind since we could hang out in Michelle’s lovely home. Stay hear if you want a real treat!

    Michelle was one of the kindest and most hospitable people we have ever met. She really made sure that our questions were immediately and requests (getting a microwave) were met as far as possible. She had quite a few drinks and snacks ready for us in the kitchen before we arrived and she has an awesome library with a few trivia games. The view outside the window is obviously the highlight of the stay. Couldn’t think of a better way to spend rainy days in Iceland.
