Early Sunday morning and a light snow is coming down on the deck. October 28th and here we go again, though I’m not sure I’m quite ready for it. Sam’s been pulling winter clothes out of the basement for weeks.
Back in August, day five of our holiday on Martha’s Vineyard, and the sense of guilt at having crossed the border still making me grumpy. I was trying to think of it as an island off the coast of America, rather than part of the country proper.
Joe Talbot, lead singer of the very special English punk band, Idles, is a complicated character. I say that based on a dedicated run-in the last few months with their two albums and then a fleeting encounter in Toronto.
SOLD. Woodhaven is the mildly leafy neighbourhood that has developed and matured rapidly in recent years, west of Bayridge Drive and north of Princess St. Which is to say it’s a scant five-minute drive to the Cataraqui Town Centre...
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.
SOLD. 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.
