Kelly of Ville St-Laurent seeks to learn about history of house still standing on Boul Cote Vertu, at the corner of Begin Street behind the Vitre Lebeau

In a comment at that post I’ve added a question from Kelly.
Question from Kelly:
I enjoyed reading the article about St-Laurent and the Decarie/Descaire family.
I have lived in VSTL my entire 57 years.
There is a house still standing on Boul Cote Vertu, at the corner of Begin Street. It is behind the Vitre Lebeau – would you know anything of this history. Although the house is sadly falling apart – I am fascinated by the look into the past.
I have added a google aerial shot.
Thank you for any help.

I visited the old house on Cote Vertu this week-end, see attached pic- the address could be 3705 or 3703.
My contact at the city has his team pulling what they have in the archives – wow I’m so happy.
The only thing he could confirm is that the house is in a very bady deteriorated state – sad!

It’s an impressive looking house
I’m reminded of a previous post (see link below), about a house in Ontario that I’ve passed by many times when driving between Stratford and Toronto. The post features photos of an abandoned house that I’ve found most interesting to have a close look. We have some comments at the post from people who were living at the house before it was abandoned. I found it of much interest to read their comments:
I’m reminded as well of the concept that what once were farmers’ fields are now urban areas:
I grew up in Cartierville and have from time to time written about the changes that have occurred since my own childhood years:
I’m reminded as well about the history of land use in the neighbourhood in Mississauga where I taught as an elementary teacher prior to my retirement from teaching in 2006:
In the comments section below we have a comment from Graeme Decarie. I’ve included a couple of photos of him at this post just so we know what a good looking guy he is.
