SOLD. The marvelous views from this seventh floor condominium in the Harbour Place building are of Ontario St, with the city spilling very prettily to the left and the waters of Confederation Basin to the right.
SOLD. Pine St rises gently from Patrick and makes a beeline for Division before finally running out of steam at the Memorial Centre. It’s an impressive dash, and some of the area’s grandest brick homes are spaced along its length.
SOLD. 524 Bagot St. Just north of Raglan Rd on the west side of the street. A two-bedroom two bathroom townhouse renovated to a high standard and with a stone courtyard behind the house.
SOLD. I’ve sold this house before. That’s how a real estate career works best: repeat business. You get five years into the job and your first clients start moving again. The hope is that if you did a decent job for them, they’ll call you back in.
SOLD. Not long after the sign went up this morning at 145 Charles St, I got an email from a friend who lives down the street. Find us a good neighbour, will you? That was the gist of it.
SOLD. I go through a lot of awful apartments. Hallways like something from The Shining, full of rank, wet shag carpets in coral pink and avocado green. Walls that have been treated as punching bags.
SOLD. 789 Canniff Place: a pretty, grey-brick backsplit at the end of a cul-de-sac with a green yard you could train a horse in. Two horses, even. Run your own gymkhana on holiday weekends. Sell tickets. Hire a food truck.
On Quebec St, at the edge of the Fruit Belt and an easy walk from Friendship Park and McBurney, the downtown core, is a tidy row of six yellow-brick-fronted duplexes. You’ve driven by them without really noticing perhaps. I find I do that a lot. I dream my way through the neighbourhood.
SOLD. From the sky-high rooftop deck of this downtown red-brick triplex at 9 Balaclava St, the tenants can look out over McBurney Park. Perhaps the playground is shrouded in mist, the distant and fogged-in treetops not much more than vague notions, a suspicion of elms...
SOLD Corrigan St. If you’re trying to place the address, it’s just north of Raglan Rd and runs between Rideau and Bagot. There’s a cool old farmhouse on the north side of the street, and a view across the Cataraqui River of Barriefield and St Mark’s Church in Barriefield.
