Set in the picturesque Laurentian countryside, a cedar-and-stone home stands in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings.
Built on the foundations of 19th-century department store pioneer Henry
Morgan’s hunting lodge, this elegant country home
is nestled on the shores of Lac de la Cabane in the Laurentian countryside, just north of Montreal. Its owners, Laurentian native Guylain Verdier and his wife, Katrine, discovered the site during a walk through the woods. Guylain ended up purchasing a huge parcel of land, mostly for development, but set this site aside for his family. The 5,000-square-foot house was designed in collaboration with Marc Julien and Denis Cyr of JBC Architectes and designer Jean-François Ménard.Kitchen and dining room
In the kitchen and dining area, modern touches, such as white lacquered cabinetry and contemporary acrylic chairs, are balanced with more rustic elements, such as the recycled-wood dining table
and the bookshelf. The contrast is in keeping with the rest of the home’s decor.
