STEEPED IN HISTORY



FRESH ON THE MARKET : 28 SOUTH STREET, HAMILTON, ONTARIO

This is one of those ones you often drive by and wonder about. Set far-back from the street, 28 South Street, stands out from the surrounding early twentieth century properties. And it should because its the original farm house to the area. Below are some cool facts I uncovered in the book Heritage Treasures.

1847 Linquenda
Began as a combination house and barn in the ancient Saxon style. Made of dolomite rubble stone using chunks salvaged from the escarpment. The present facade is actually the back of the house. What is now the front door functioned originally as the stable door. The old time front door now opens onto a deck and fenced yard. Linquenda is a Latin word meaning something that must be left behind. A reminder of life's temporal quality...

Now listed at $429,900 on realtor.ca!
