I’m intrigued by this article. There’s a house for sale in Montreal, right, and people are already assuming it’s haunted. Why? Cuz paranormal stuff is so hot right now. But seriously, it’s an old house and apparently hasn’t been renovated much, if at all, since being built almost 100 years ago.
The listing says a building contractor built the house with his employees in 1919 and 1920. Judging from the images posted online, nothing has changed since.
The house looks like a time capsule from the 1920s; its well-worn furniture and dusty floors contributing to a sense that something of its past owners lingers on inside the empty rooms.
“Probably the first Victorian house to be built in the area of Petite Patrie and certainly the last to be renovated,” the listing says.
It adds that the floors, doors and paneling are all original, made from oak. The floor was only ever covered with beeswax, it says. The walls bear the marks of items that once hung there and the bedroom still contains a bed.
A visitor told CTV News the house had a feeling to it, as though it was haunted.
The listing includes a warning that there is no legal warranty for the house’s quality.
In this day and age, it’s totally acceptable to presume everything you come across is paranormal, full of ghosts, possibly demonic, and definitely soon-to-be on TV.
