Here are a few of my favourites:
All are older houses that have been renovated. Our community has a program to acknowledge the heritage homes with a plaque. You can see one in the photo above - it lists the year the house was built, the first homeowner and his/her occupation.
I've been meaning to get one for our house which was, we believe, built in 1913-14. We were told it was built in 1909 but when the OnlyChild and I went to the city archives to do some research, the records showed no mention of the house until 1914.
The next house was my favourite on Sunday (my favourites change frequently). I know it's not the most luxurious or ostentatious house in the community, but it's so cozy looking. When I walked by it, I could imagine it decorated and lit up for Christmas (plus I could sort of see in the windows and it's really cute inside).
This next one is for sale. But it's waaay out of my league - they're asking nearly $700,000 for it!
And, yes, there are some "uglies" in the neighbourhood too.
