SOLD. This legal duplex on York St not far west of Division offers a two-storey three-bedroom unit, next to a two-storey one-bedroom plus den. I've always liked apartments that are spread over two floors.
Red-brick townhomes are in short supply north of Princess St. There are some modest examples on Bagot, just north of Raglan, and further west on Chatham is another set, right at the sidewalk. There are one or two others. But the prettiest, to my mind, are those on York St, just west of Barrie, between McBurney Park and the Fruit Belt. ...
SOLD! Most of the east-west length of Burbrook Rd expresses itself between Hwy 38 and Battersea Rd. It also marks, for a stretch, the northern border of the Little Cataraqui Conservation Area

Sold. 2130 CORDUKES RD. I like the land north of the city, always have. The thin skins of tussocky grass stretched over the rock. And those green horizons of scrub spruce spiked up like some punk hairdo.
SOLD. You’re downtown, in a very sweet detached and renovated bungalow with parking out front and a small, private yard behind. The ceilings are sky-high and the new floors shine.
