Once in a life time opportunity to own a piece of history. This masterpiece offers a full stone construction from top to bottom, all floors are wood with exposed beams and most walls are stone. What use to be a wind mill was moved from its original location and completely rebuilt to spec. Looking for something special, unique, completely original?

Addenda: This fabulous home started out life as a working windmill at the Seigneiurie de Vaudreuil in 1767. Saved from destruction in 1954 by Col. Roger Maillet, who moved and rebuilt the mill stone by stone in it's present location..Col Maillet's estate "Domaine de l'Arche". After the Colonel's death, the mill changed hands and eventually was transformed into a residence in the early 1980's. Each floor is circular with stone walls of about 3-4 feet thick. Numerous charming features such as exposed beams, stone walls, alcoves, wide plank floors add to the originality and character of this home. There is a oversized detached double garage with a heated upstairs studio. The private 23,000 sq. property is fully fenced and well treed. No neighbours in the back. (green space). Low taxes and remarkably easy maintenance on this property. As this property has been rebuilt, it is not a provincial protected historical building

    Kudos to Col. Roger Maillet for disassembling, moving, and reassembling this place. Can you imagine the commitment it would take to undertake such a project? Zut alors!

    Incredibly unique property! Love all the wood and stone, especially the kitchen. And just think how fit you’ll be going up and down the stairs all day!

    I wonder where the door in the floor by the dining room table goes.

    Help! Help! Someone needs to go rescue Rapunzel! I have never seen a more appropriate tower for her! Totally cool!

    I know this sounds odd, but if ever there was the perfect house for someone with cats, this is it! We only have one cat but he would go ballistic with all of the high places to explore.

      I could see him now. Running up and down the stairs, looking out the window by the kitchen sink. All the way up and down all day. Perfect indeed. Lovely home. The wood is breathtaking.

      Doesn’t sound odd to me – makes perfect sense. Cats, esp. ypunger ones, would love zooming up & down all of those levels! Some good deep windowsills/embrasures, too, for looking out into the trees. Kind of like a cat tree in human house form. ? All of those stairs would give the human(s) a workout, too!

      Funny you should say that — my first impression of this amazing place was that it made me think of the converted apple barn described in the fictional “The Cat Who…” mystery series by Lillian Jackson Braun.

    I think this is a sort of dream home for me…It is a tiny home with massive character and just enough space to be comfortable in the tower.

    I’ve always wondered how you tear down and rebuild a stone or brick building like this. Seems like an impossible task, or way more work than it would be to make it worth it to take it all apart without breaking too many of the stones or bricks, then clean them and get them all back in the same right place, or close enough to be basically the same building.

    Wood buildings I can see. But masonry buildings seem like it would be prohibitively complicated to do.

    This is one of the most unique properties I have ever seen on OHD. The stonework, the woodwork, that kitchen…..I love everything about it. It even has a wonderful studio where I could do crafts. From the pictures, you’d think five acres would be such a perfect, private setting, until you check out street view. I was crushed to see a house within a stone’s throw, and a business of some type right across the street. Still, one of my favorites of all time.

      I agree. I was wondering why they would put such a fairy-tale structure into the middle of an urban situation? Honestly so out of place. So sad. I wish I’d never looked at the street view! 🙁

    I grew up on Ile Perrot from 1959-1968 when we could go off all day into the woods and explore as long as we were home for dinner. I always remember wondering onto this property and seeing the beautiful tower and think WOW wouldn’t it be cool to live in it? Living in So. Calif. for almost 51yrs now and wish we could buy it and fulfil that little boys dream. Beautiful
