The house has an intriguing background. It was built in 1847 in what is now Westmount, with a stunning view down the hill to the St. Lawrence River and hundreds of miles beyond. The house on 2 lots is a Regency-style plantation home, common in the tropics, but a style seldom seen in Montreal. Perhaps its most distinguishing feature is the two balconies that circumnavigate it at the main floor and second floor levels. The second owner of the house was a lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria (who perhaps, gave it its name BRAEMAR, after the village in Scotland near Victoria's beloved Balmoral Castle)
