Wilson House

The Wilson House, located in the Old North Sherbrooke area, was built in 1903 according to the plans of the architect C.E. White, in new-Tudor style. The house sits on a large piece of land at the corner of Dominion and Québec Streets. It has a brick exterior with roughcast half-timbering.

The entrance hall of this 12-room home presents a majestic staircase, and the residence boasts 4 fireplaces and 90 windows.

The Wilson House is part of the Old North Sherbrooke, a peaceful neighbourhood with properties resplendent with trees and flowers.

In 2006, the Wilson House was awarded the national prize of the house of the 20th century, in the context of the Historia TV network’s series “Open doors, House and passion”.

Since 1999 M. Alain Desrochers and his family have lived in the house Wilson. The Descrochers family has ensured the upkeep and preservation of this magnificent home.
