One typical housing type here in Montreal is the duplex apartment. What's new to us, though, is their relationship. They're not side-by-side, but stacked. The front doors are next to one another. One door leads to the lower unit and the other door leads to an interior stair to the upper unit. The duplex pictured up top is a particular standout to us because of its ivy-covered facade. Click on through for duplex number two and a few close-ups...

We noticed one major difference between these two duplexes: The first one is hiding behind a full beard. The second one is flung wide open for the world to see. Every door and window are opened: maybe the owners are painting? Either way, we like them both.

Which level of a duplex would we prefer to live on? The upper, for sure. Check out those balconies. They're well worth the extra flight of stairs. How about you - which level would you choose?
