Our listings are all here, as well as thoughts on music and food, politics and art.
60 Easy Lane, Wolfe Island - $499,000
A wonderful year-round home at the south-western edge of Wolfe Island at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. A fossil-strewn stone beach and views west to Amherst Island. The sun lowers itself into the water for your viewing pleasure every single day of the year.
545 Bagot St - $295,000
Look at those floors, about as mottled and worn and beautiful as the hide of cows left for years in peace in a green field with the sun and the clouds and the flies all beating down, and scratching themselves idly against the wire fence. Those are floors that have seen it all. The Iggy Pop of floors.
208 York St - $525,000
A four-bedroom red-brick home with a third-floor master suite you won’t want to leave in the morning. Situated between the Memorial Centre and Skeleton Park. Wonderfully renovated and with in-law potential.
574 Frontenac St - $479,000
We’re very fond of this three-bedroom home opposite the Memorial Centre grounds (which means front-row seats to the Sunday market, and the splash pad, and the dog park). A lovely limestone courtyard outside the kitchen, and a green garden other side of the garage.
4 Crerar Blvd
Reddendale. A three-bedroom detached home in an extraordinarily popular part of town, close to the lake, with parks galore, good schools, and stone beaches.
234 Sydenham St
Sold. A two-bedroom row house opposite Central Public School, which means a breath away from Skeleton Park and The Grand. No wonder it didn’t last.
4125 Boyce Road
An elevated bungalow on four acres, This smart 3+1 home is thirty minutes north of the city. There is hardwood and granite, there is a hot tub and deck.
Getting Away. Last week, while Cheri minded the shop, I headed to New York City for a few days. I watched the kids rather than the real estate hotsheet, and rode the ferry from Brooklyn to Manhattan. I mostly played hooky is how it felt. And for an hour at least, I hung out in the Flight Club shoe store, where everything is shrink-wrapped. While Lucian shopped, I stared out the back window and I saw what you can now see above.
I’ll write more about New York tomorrow. Right after I VOTE!
