Imagine a really spectacular five bedroom bungalow nearly completely rebuilt to the highest of standards on a wonderful treed lot on a quiet crescent full of interesting architectural homes and a wooded park...
You have a wishlist. Top of that list is the fact that you want a big brick century home on a double lot stuffed with fruit trees and rhubarb.
The transformation of the Memorial Centre grounds in Williamsville the last few years is really quite thrilling. I like the look from the street of the big outdoor pool and its towering red slides, the smart playground and the off-leash dog park.
There are a few pictures in the virtual tour for this marvellous new listing that were shot at twilight from an angle slightly below the house. They give the impression, I think, of a house set into a near-desert of dry tussock grass and a glittering litter of moon rock.

NEW LISTING. The marvelous views from this seventh floor condominium in the Harbour Place building are of Ontario St, with the city spilling very prettily to the left and the waters of Confederation Basin to the right.

These are good times to live in Prince Edward County, it would seem. Artist Don Maynard and writer Melanie Dugan moved there from Kingston this summer.
