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

mayor Rob Ford

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.

201 HIGHWAY 15

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.

76 ROBERT ST, NAPANEE

$249 900

I like Napanee. I like the linear jumble of pretty buildings and styles along its rejuvenated main street, which seems to me the very epitome of small-town eastern Ontario (and I mean that in a good way), and I like how the town hugs the banks of the Napanee River. That river reminds me of the places in England that I used to fish as a boy. And I particularly like the town’s handsome collection of substantial and well-preserved redbrick homes. Today I was lucky enough to list one of those homes.

UPDATE: SOLD!. The virtual tour for 1068 Wise St is here, and the listing is here. The seller here has only had this lovely house  in Kingston's west end for a couple of years but during that time John has embarked on a nearly constant series of refinements and enhancements.
