So, by now you are all probably thinking it is a wonderful place where I live and wouldn't it be great if you, too, could have a house here. I am here to help you. I have sought out a few properties that are for sale. With a couple of exceptions these were found within a two mile walk along Lakeshore. So we are within a very specified area - after all I was walking and didn't go wandering all over town. Besides, this is where the most interesting architecture is to be found, as far as I am concerned. I may be biased, though. But if any of these appeal to you, you could be my neighbour and we could explore all those neat places for eating, drinking and shopping together.
these two are next door to each other and are still being extensively renovated
only the one on the right is for sale, but I rather like these two together, obviously by the same builder. they are rather close to the street, however
a little plain for my taste, but love the colour and the huge hydrangeas
showing a little more curb appeal
this one comes with free sidewalk art
sadly this little one is already sold. it is across from a park where you can sit on your porch and watch the kids playing soccer and baseball
I love this house below. it doesn't show all that well in the photo, but look at that sunroom with the pyramid skylight! and it has a wheelchair ramp, which is handy even if you are not using a wheelchair. it faces a small lookout onto the lake where you can watch the geese and the ships.
not my taste, but that must be quite the attic suite!
a meandering driveway that must be hell to navigate in the snow....
maybe you would like a heritage property like this one above
or a custom build
this poor thing has been like this for about 3 years. it started of as a good proposition to renovate what was originally just that front portion, then I guess the owner got overwhelmed... it is not for sale, but it might be if you ask nicely.
or maybe you would prefer something with less maintenance, then an apartment in this building might be just the thing (although there are no balconies)
or you could have several balconies (more in the back) and get a live/work situation. and be next door to the Black Pearl Lingerie shop.
