House to see in East Bolton

12 Ch. du Plateau, East Bolton

Contemporary design meets the ageless beauty of the natural Appalachian landscape. Easy access to Montreal or Sherbrooke, near Eastern Townships lakes such as Memphremagog, Bonne Allée, Nick and Trouser. Ski Orford or Owl’s Head nearby. Make this your weekend retreat or your home for all seasons.


The Site: The topography of this valley, the view of Orford and the movement of the sun determined the position of the house and the southeast orientation of its main façade. Superb landscaping with rocks, water and plants that complement each other harmoniously. Materials and Design: Glass, naturally aged steel, galvanized steel and cedar used to reflect the soul and character of the rural buildings of the region and the natural environment. Large, well-placed windows frame the landscape, bringing nature into your living spaces and perfectly complementing the volume of the rooms. Note that Corten steel only oxidizes on the surface, aging well without compromising the structure. Architect: Glenn Peterson. Features: Open plan, high ceilings. Three 12′ high windows add drama to the minimalist living room decor. Functional and friendly kitchen with cherry and stainless steel countertops open to the main area. Zen master bath, the width of the house, with slate shower, tub and horizontal windows placed at eye level with views of the surrounding forests and ski slopes. Custom made cabinets. Lower level on the ground floor. In-ground pool and pool house to enhance your summer days. The 12 ch. du Plateau has been the subject of articles in these magazines: Architecture Habitat and Espace Vital, 100 Contemporary Houses (2006), in Plaisirs de Vivre 2004 September issue and in Vivre Ici et Là 2010.
