GANG OF FOUR

A couple of Saturdays ago, I was out north and a bit west of Camden East, looking for the second time at a limestone farmhouse severed somewhere in the distant past from its original 200 acres and now hunkered down, sphinx-like, at the centre of a verdant green acre.

ROB FORD IS NOT MY FRIEND

I know there’s nothing unique in my saying this, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to keep quiet any longer. Because I’ve had enough of Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford.

UPDATE: THIS LOVELY HOUSE IS NOW SOLD!

I like this one a lot. This redbrick farmhouse is set on five fantastic, varied acres (field in front; Canadian shield out back) and has been restored and updated with a real empathy and love. It just might be the best house of its type that I’ve seen. Let me tell you some of the reasons why I say that.
