CORKTOWN CHARACTER HOME circa 1891



92 Wellington Street South, Hamilton, Ontario
Currently Listed on Realtor.ca for $369,850. View listing HERE 


This fresh piece of brick has turned my head for years. Captivating curb appeal in a busy but central downtown location. Character trumps location with this  home, but its well worth it based on these FRESH features:

- Magnificent lead glass doors & matching lead glass windows
- 10' ceilings
 - Spacious living room with a large leaded glass bay window
- Gas fireplace & hardwood floors
- Grand staircase
- 3 large bedrooms & a spa like bathroom with jetted tub
- Enchanting low maintenance perennial gardens
- Absolutely spectacular one of a kind 6,000 gallon pond with waterfall (Featured in the Hamilton Spectator - View article HERE)


 

 
 
6,000 gallon pond - Muskoka in the City!
  • Looks more like a lake — all right, a small bay of a lake — than an installed pond
  • The pond takes most of the back yard and is ringed by trees, shrubs and a mulch-covered path that evokes the pine-needle forest carpets of cottage country. The large waterfall provides constant movement and sound that muffles the busy street noise.
  • Around the six-metre by nine-metre pond are 25 tons of granite. It holds 6,000 gallons of water and up to 20 koi and is 48 inches deep at its deepest point
  • The current owners have owned house for about eight years and started the garden about five years ago
  • The couple left a condo in downtown Toronto to live in and restore the old house, which they have determined was built for Arthur O’Heir, a lawyer and, serendipitously, chair of the Hamilton parks board in 1914-15.

  1. Nice blog and really nice design.Sloping and troublesome blocks need plenty of attention throughout thought and style. Several options got to be taken under consideration like views, aspects, services orientation, access and affordability.Builders hardware
