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. 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.
SOLD. 398 Lyndhurst Road sits just shy of the old stone bridge (the oldest in Ontario) in the pretty village of Lyndhurst. The broad creek runs into Lower Beverley Lake and the place used to be called Furnace Falls.
SOLD. It’s a very special place, this one, and to be honest, it caught me completely off-guard. Not so much the fact that it’s a good house on a quiet street, full of nice things, nice sightlines, windows, views over the pool etc.
SOLD. This absolutely adorable detached home with parking is located at the centre of The Fruit Belt, on the same block as Friendship Park and a scant five-minute walk from McBurney.
SOLD. You have a wishlist. Top of that list is the fact that you want a big brick century home on a double lot stuffed with fruit trees and rhubarb.
SOLD. The transformation of the Memorial Centre grounds in Williamsville the last few years is really quite thrilling. I like the look from the street of the big outdoor pool and its towering red slides, the smart playground and the off-leash dog park.
SOLD.There are a few pictures in the virtual tour for this marvellous new listing that were shot at twilight from an angle slightly below the house. They give the impression, I think, of a house set into a near-desert of dry tussock grass and a glittering litter of moon rock.
SOLD. Patrick St is the shy sibling of the more outgoing Pine and Barrie and Quebec. It does much of its own quiet thing a few blocks east of Plum and Cherry and Chestnut
SOLD. Back in the early 1980s I lived for a year on Bagot St, right down near City Park. I’d only been in Canada a year or so and now I’d started a film degree at the university. It was all quite lovely but also a bit disorienting.
