Sold. There are lots of reasons I’m fond of this new listing. There is the building’s history for starters. The Crystal Springs schoolhouse is where it all begins, a pretty two-storey limestone affair that opened in 1869.
This really extraordinary waterfront property, at the end of a long and winding paved driveway, and with some 3700 square feet of pristine finished living space, is a scant twenty minutes north of downtown Kingston on the shores of Dog Lake.
SOLD. Sometimes things move fast in real estate, as you’ll appreciate if you’ve been looking for a home the last year and a half. And even though there don’t seem to be quite as many multiple offer situations these last few weeks, inventory is still very low and houses like this new one can disappear quickly.
In case you were wondering, 257 Montreal St is right at the end of John St. And so if you buy this sweet sweet house you can (once you’ve unpacked, and mused a while on how things really have turned out pretty well for you)...
NEW PRICE. York St between Chatham and Division is a popular little stretch that in its pretty jumble of styles epitomizes the downtown core. There are grand red-brick homes alongside houses no bigger than a double garage.
SOLD. 49 Florence St, in the lovely Balsam Grove subdivision, is nestled on the east side of the street most of the way up the easiest of hills. Which means that you’re part of a very discreet and sweet little enclave
I like very much the new marquee for The Screening Room. It pleases me that the title of a good film or two will be offered up every time I walk by. My life, and Kingston's, will be enriched by its announcements.
SOLD. 398 Lyndhurst Road sits just shy of the old stone bridge (the oldest in Ontario) in the pretty village of Lyndhurst. The broad creek runs into Lower Beverley Lake and the place used to be called Furnace Falls.
SOLD. It’s a very special place, this one, and to be honest, it caught me completely off-guard. Not so much the fact that it’s a good house on a quiet street, full of nice things, nice sightlines, windows, views over the pool etc.
