THE HEART OF SYDENHAM WARD

$715 000

SOLD. 162 Earl St has already sold. It’s at the heart of Sydenham ward and it dates to 1867, and it’s big and ranges over 2.5 storeys, and there’s a heated studio in the back garden, and there are wonderful views of the courthouse from several windows. So that helps

CANADIAN SHIELD FARMHOUSE

$209 900

SOLD When I was a kid, growing up in an ancient village just outside Oxford in England, I was, for a few months, studying the Canadian Shield, and the effects of glaciation on the Ontario landscape. It was a distant, largely unimaginable land, so hard-seeming and unforgiving, compared to the green valleys and fish-full streams I was used to.

KINGSTON WRITERSFEST

Kington Writersfest is upon us again, which means it’s another very good week to be in Kingston. It runs from Wednesday September 23rd through Sunday the 27th. It’s been five years since I had a book to promote there and it feels like it might be another five years before I’m ready with the next one. Not that I’m complaining. Well not too much. But I’m a lucky guy in that I do get to participate in other ways.

$269 900

SOLD. An interesting pretty house, this one at 99 Chatham St. With its elegant red and white exterior colour scheme, its gleaming metal roof and picket fence, it’s like something from a movie poster.

DOWNTOWN BRICK WITH BARN

$182 500

SOLD! A detached three-bedroom red-brick century home with parking (and carport), fenced yard, and even a small barn, close to downtown Kingston for well under $200,000. Those don’t come along very often. But this lovely place has also been charmingly renovated...

BALSAM GROVE SIDESPLIT

$289 900

SOLD Here’s a really immaculate four-level sidesplit with a detached garage in popular and leafy Balsam Grove. This much-loved 3+1 bedroom 2 bath home has hardwood under the carpets and a very bright in-law suite down below...

PROTESTING THE PROTESTORS

Michele Pred

May I just say that getting kids probably not old enough to conceive a child, or to form particularly complex arguments on the matter of personal choice, to stand at various traffic intersections this week and act as slumping, mobile easels against which you lean enormous pictures of aborted fetuses, is among the most most despicable and hateful things I can remember seeing on Kingston’s streets.
