LOVE BEGINS AT HOME After falling in love with a 1927 house, the owner has it respectfully updated PHOTOGRAPHY: MAXIME BROUILLET

SHE IS A FIRST-TIME HOMEOWNER WHO LOVES HER HOME. But don’t dismiss her declaration as simply a passing fancy that might not survive the test of time.

However, it was not love at first sight. The emotional relationship needed time to grow. And like many stories of this kind, it all started oh, so innocently, when a girl met a house. They first ran into each other back in 2014, on a residential street in Notre Dame de Grâce. She was young and single, with a bright future ahead of her.

And this unlikely pair began their courtship. •
