Tranquility and elegance
The charming village of Senneville Quebec is located on the Western-most tip of the Island of Montreal and has the highest per capita income in the West Island of Montreal.
It obtained its name following a sale of the land on which it sits by Michel Sidrac Dugé, the sieur of Boisbriand, to Charles LeMoyne and his partner Jacques LeBer, who were both fur traders. In 1679 LeBer renamed the village Senneville in memory of his hometown in France “Senneville sur Fecamp”.
In later years, the son of LeBer, Jacques, built Fort Senneville in the early 1700s. The fort, destroyed by fire in 1777 by US General Benedict Arnold is located on privately owned land. The landmark is an important part of Montreal’s cultural and natural heritage. At the turn of the century, the coveted area was a highly desirable location for wealthy Montrealer’s summer homes.
The area features abundant green space and a beautiful shoreline along the lake of Two Mountains. In 1945, the Morgan family founded the Morgan Arboretum in the North Ward of Senneville. It is now a part of the MacDonald Campus of McGill University and features 245 Hectares of wooded land for citizens to enjoy.
This beautiful town is characterized by impressive, sprawling estates along the shores of the Lake of Two Mountains, and also features more modest family homes located on quiet, narrow roads among mature landscapes. The area is truly breathtaking, and a bike ride along Senneville Road will delight you with its beautiful scenery and mature landscape.
For those wishing to commute to the city, the commuter train is located close by in neighboring Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue and there is easy access to highways 20 and 40. Shopping and services are within a short 10 minute drive.
