$239 000

SOLD! 478 Kirkwood Rd is off Castell Rd, which is off Days Rd, which is off Bath Rd just west of Gardiners Rd. Got it?

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

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.

But I’m a lucky guy in that I do get to participate in other ways.
