I headed west on Taylor-Kidd Blvd, then north on Milford Drive, and west on Grouse Cres., stopping finally outside number 785. You pin that spot on a map and you’re nearly dead-centre of Bayridge.
This really spacious Amherstview Cape Cod has been extensively renovated, and with its modern and stylish, light-filled spaces, it will be a very popular listing. We’ve liked it very much from the first moment we walked in the door.
This luxurious one-bedroom condominium was featured in the pages of Kingston Life for a very good reason - it`s marvellous. Situated at the downtown intersection of Queen and Bagot Streets...
New Price. There are a good number of red-brick 2.5 storey homes in downtown Kingston, and they're every bit as important to the streetscape as the older limestone homes.
This large and really interesting 19th century building close to the tumbling river in the fabulous hamlet of Newburgh (the limestone homes such a pale yellow here, the trees so green, the bakery and ice cream shop so impossible to drive by)...
NEW PRICE. I wrote a novel, ostensibly a thriller, a few years back, set in the Kingston and the Thousand Islands. There was lots of frantic running about on the ice between the mainland and little bits of land just off Gananoque. And a lot of swearing too.
These are good times to live in Prince Edward County, it would seem. Artist Don Maynard and writer Melanie Dugan moved there from Kingston this summer. And a couple of years back it was teacher Keri Nelson and filmmaker Lenny Epstein. I don’t know if that move was countered by others moving this way, to Kingston, but I’d say the County did pretty well. Lenny is now a councilor there too, and his is a good and progressive voice.
SOLD! I read of a study once that suggested the intense scent of lemons could provoke happiness, cause great blooms of activity in the human mood centres, at least as they are picked up by the MRI machines. So I promptly went out and bought a dozen Meyer lemons, put them in a nice bowl on the kitchen counter.
OFF THE MARKET. This extraordinary triplex is just a ten minute walk from Queen’s campus and less than that to the heart of downtown, to grocery stores, restaurants etc. It’s as fine, and as interesting, as any rental property I’ve seen. So there you go.
It’s fall and I have some new listings. It’s busy out there. First up are a couple of homes on Bagot St, between Charles and James, specifically numbers 618 and 628. Buy one or buy them both. (There’s a real advantage to picking up both of these properties, by the way, but I’ll get to that in a bit.)
