Colourful Doors in Vieux Terrebonne – Part 2

Here are some more of the fun colours and historic architecture to be found in Vieux Terrebonne not far from here in the Lanaudiere region northeast of Montreal.

In case you missed it last week you can see the first series in Part 1 here.

No door in this shot but still a good example of our unique winding outdoor iron staircases.

 

If anyone’s interested, according to the sign in the yard this place is for sale…

I love the small town, country vibe to this one.

the chipped paint and handwritten sign made this one a winner for me but it dawns on me now that I should have checked to see if the sign on the main entrance was a little more formal than this one 😀

    There is something incredibly compelling about doors, isn’t there, Norm? From the whimsical to the grand, I utterly love them! Thank you for always posting the coolest doors ‘out there’! Cher xo

    I love that blue sloping roof and winding staircase. The doors with the green circles looks like a piece or modern art..or an alien ship. lol. The weathered white door looks like it tell many stories. While I wouldn’t do it myself, I feel drawn to the color patterns of the house for sale. Maybe it just that its style is the kind I dreamed of when I was young. It has a lovely door too! Great finds and pops of color this week Norm! 🙂

  3. I just found this blog challenge thanks to another blogger. I’m swamped in April due to the April A to Z Blog Challenge (and I’m doing two blogs for that), but will join in the fun in May. I don’t have a lot of photos and I hope windows are okay, too. I love old doors and windows!!

  4. Such excellent houses you’ve got over there. All seem to be candidates for Pippi Longstocking’s Vila Čira Čara. (I forget the name of her house in English.) Also, I wonder if the door 792 is on sale also without the house attached. And finally, the garage with the three circles could also house a mermaid.

      There are some charming little places in this area. You’re right about the garage door. Whenever I see windows shaped like portholes, my brain automatically shifts into a nautical theme 🙂

    Oh those are some beauties. That carved wooden one, with all the geometric cut-outs, wow. And the blue roof line! And I love that old battered white wood. All those locks on the peeling yellow. I hope I get back into doors soon. Thursdays are the hardest to miss!

  7. Even though I’m not a purple fan, I like the first door. That’s an interesting staircase and roof.I like the blue house’s door and the door on the for sale house. I also like the last pink door.

    The colors are so appealing, perhaps a welcome sight for the eyes during the long, dull winters. Such diversity in the doors, too. Love the iron staircase.

    Great selection today Norm!

    The light green trim and the turret filials or what those details are called holding the edges of the roof up. Awkward analyis and no shutters. I thought I had seen green shutters. Happy upcoming weekend, Norm! 💮 🌸 🐦

    I enjoyed this second part of your quaint country village photographs, Norm. The green trim and shutters are so pretty. #250 blue with white “frilly” details is gorgeous, Norm. 🐦

  12. Excellent collection of doors to share this week, Norm! However, I had to marvel at the Canadian security camera systems; on many doors you shared, there was a guy shooting your photo while you photographed those doors 😉

  17. Wow, that is a gorgeous cornucopia of doors! I love the door with the diamond and triangle cut-outs especially. And, that garage door with the three circular windows (?)… since the middle one doesn’t have a seam in the center, I wonder which door it’s attached to?

    For the owner of the house with the iron staircase – I hope it was not the front door! The house for sale – yes I’m interested, but I expect that to cost a fortune, and several renovation projects, so …no not really, although I love the unique front door! Thanks for hosting, and for the offer to help, but I think my comment problem is finally solved:)

      I’m pretty sure the iron staircase leads to the front door of an upstairs apartment above the main residence.
      I checked the real estate listing of the one for sale; asking was around $485K if I remember correctly. Seems very reasonable at first glance, but I’m guessing there’s another $150-200K in renovations and repairs to get the place up to it’s former glory. It’s gorgeous inside though 🙂

        considering Californian prices it would be pretty reasonable! but with my hubby it would be more in renovations. My kids have a saying, “If dad does it, it will last another 300 years.” I guess am staying in California, where at least the winter is shorter:) Thank you Norm, for going beyond!

    Lovely photos, but I have to admit I’m in awe of the blue roof. Not a pretty door like that red one, but my goodness that is a doozy of a roof.

    • Norm 2.0 says:

      Thanks Ally. Yes a lot of those roofs were tin and had a very steep pitch to keep the snow from accumulating. Very dangerous to be standing under one during spring thaw though. As the tin heats up from the sun, ice slides off in huge dangerous chunks.

  25. Norm, I thought of you when I saw the door in Paris that I posted for this week’s doors. I hope you like it, hint, you can’t park in front of it 🙂
    I really like the staircase that you have in this week’s collection.

    You hit the motherlode with this visit to Terrebonne. I too really like that spiral staircase with the unusual dropdown blue roof (awning?). I would hate having to navigate those stairs everyday, especially in the winter, but it looks so, so, so …. Quebec!

    A great selection of doors, Norm. I would love to own 792 – turret, large front veranda, unusual front door, and that little peek-a-boo dormer window in the centre. What’s not to love?
    I hope the new owners find a way to restore that weather-beaten wooden door with all the triangles … or make the effort to have it rebuilt.

    • Norm 2.0 says:

      Thanks Joanne. I was curious enough to check out the listing for 792 online. Amazed the asking price was a bit below a half mill. Lots of restoration and repair work to be done though.
      The inside is gorgeous with original wood floors and tall ceilings. It’s going to make for an interesting project for someone who has the time and money to do it.

  30. I wonder whether the bright colors are to offset the long whites of winter. No matter why, they’re great, but must take a good amount of painting upkeep. Lovely gallery, Norm.

      You’re right about the painting Janet. In a climate like this wood has to be repainted pretty much every year. You can skip a year from time to time but not too often 😉

    Lovely colorful doors, Norm! I really like the blue lower-roof detail and the shutters and I always like the curved stairs. The curved lower roof portions are interesting. I’ve never seen that before.

    I bet Joey will like the wooden screen doors. It looks like they are slamable.

    I think the weathered old door is my favorite today, although the blue/white details at #250 is a close second.

    LOVED that stair case and blue roof – showed so much pizazz of the homeowner.

    and the variety of doors was interesting and colorful – and we used to have a back screen one similar to the one in 255
