When admiring its century-old homes and stately public buildings, it quickly becomes clear that Westmount has a character all its own. Located on the west side of the iconic Mount Royal within walking distance of downtown, it is a prestigious and peaceful area that has been home to some of Montreal’s most prominent families including the Molsons and the Bronfmans.

The winding roads of upper Westmount that lead to the top of the mountain are dotted with lavish mansions, while in lower Westmount you are more likely to find classic townhouses, converted apartments and luxury condos. Businesses of all kinds are concentrated along Greene Avenue as well as Sherbrooke Street, both pedestrian-friendly areas near a metro station and bus routes. Westmount is also home to some of the finest private and public schools, such as Marianopolis College and Dawson College.

Among its more than 30 green spaces the true gem is Westmount Summit, a woodland sanctuary for birds and flowers with pathways that lead to a lookout offering stunning views of the city.
