I live in a pretty incredible area - It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and tons and tons of charm - and 20th century architecture, just steps away from the city center, it's also a pretty expensive neighbourhood ( in which I live in servants quarters basically compared to what I'm surrounded by.)
Because there's days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one home that's for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Built in 1909
Again a semi-detached - very deceiving by the outside - here we go, come on in!
|Living Room - just adore that window with the window seat incorporated into it|
|GORGEOUS!!! love the back splash over the stove - the perfect amount of color in an all white kitchen for me|
|love the light pendants as well - this is a particularly bright house for Westmount! Because there are so many|
semi detached and row houses - the homes here tend to be LONG rather than WIDE which restricts lighting.
|Again loving the window seat - and is that a built in I spy in the back left hand corner ?|
Great Moroccan themed table set
|beautifully cozy den - I could just sink on to that couch - put my feet up and read a good book|
|floor to ceiling draperies in the bathroom - LOVE THIS!!! - and love that gorgeous tup too -|
( and that garden stool isn't too shabby either )
|and this bedroom is magazine worthy, isn't it?|
That bed is out of this world - I WANT THAT WARDROBE and the round
ottoman is adorable - IKAT rug colors? The lighting?
OK - I love every detail of this room - you all know my love of radiators already
I had black walls in my dining room in my last home - and every time I see a photo of black walls I pine for them - I will never tire of the contrast between black and white - and the dramatic elegance it adds to spaces.
Ok - I'm taking you into the basement now - which is so beautiful it's just ridiculous - truly!
It isn't often you can make me swoon over a basement - but this is no man cave here lol - don't you just
love the different " zones " they've allocated in this space?
even the bedroom in the basement is gorgeous!
and the next listing?
it's the unit above mine!
We call them Condo units ( apartments I suppose )
but it's a century old row house actually - made into 2 units - I live downstairs - and Pat lives above me - She is currently considering moving back to London and so her place is on the market - here we go!
560,000 - 2 bedroom - 2 bath
Her place was extensively updated - ( ours has more of a feel of a century old home ) and done beautifully I think -
She has some gorgeous pieces that she had sent over from her parent's estate in England
Here apartment was reconfigured to put the kitchen in the middle of the house - which in this case makes more sense - mine is still at the back of the house and we're seriously considering doing this one day
(I know these prices must seem ridiculous but you have to remember that we are right in the heart of the city
These prices in no way reflect what you would pay in the suburbs or the country - where 560,000 could basically buy you a mansion and for those of you that follow this series you saw yourself that I could buy
a hobby farm just across the border in rural Ontario for 200,000.)
and my darling friends that's it for today!
have a wonderful hump day one and all
