An exceptional estate

Luxury and real estate If you’ve ever dreamed of living in the city while enjoying the peace of the countryside and the beauty of an exceptional location, here is your dream come true: Boisé des Augustines. This housing complex has a truly peerless location in the heart of the Sillery heritage site in Québec City and is near every possible service. Boisé des Augustines consists of two buildings each holding 42 condos and is set on a lot measuring around 500,000 square feet. To the north it is bounded by Saint-Louis Road, and to the south it looks down from an escarpment over the majestic St. Lawrence.

The best thing about this site is its truly remarkable quality of life. All the apartments are floor-through, so residents have a fantastic view of the river and the south shore. Condo owners also have not only an indoor pool but an outdoor one as well, magnificently integrated into the enormous grounds. The complex also includes a grand villa (the former Villa Clermont) reserved for condo owners to use for receptions or meetings. The elegant and luxurious indoor shared spaces set the tone for the overall atmosphere in the development. Finally, the surrounding woodlands are totally unique, both for their heritage value and for their great beauty.

Two condos are presently for sale at Boisé des Augustines. Each comes with two inside parking spaces. The first, on the fifth floor, has two large bedrooms and a huge balcony measuring around 120 square feet leading from a dining room that opens onto the majestic waterway. Renovated and modern, the lively kitchen has red and white cupboards and a white granite counter to highlight the immaculate ceramic tile floor. Contrasting wood panels provide accents. In the very contemporary main bathroom, a magnificent oval standalone tub has pride of place. Nothing is missing: glassed-in shower, ultramodern fixtures, decorative panels, double sink… The result is both esthetic and functional.

The second condo is one floor down, on the fourth storey. It has a multiplicity of windows giving an unbeatable view. Blond wood floors, peaceful colours, sober design: classic charm is the watchword here. With its two bathrooms, three bedrooms and immense living room, this apartment measures 2,190 square feet in area! The kitchen, which has lovely bistro flooring, is tucked between the living spaces but still looks out to the horizon. This bright and spacious condo offers a sophisticated, refined lifestyle.

Boisé des Augustines is nothing less than a first-class private estate in a setting that is both exceptional and prestigious.
