FIRST BAMMER OF 2014!



73 Aberdeen Avenue, Hamilton, Ontario circa 1925
This grand and imposing Georgian has a presence that takes your breath away. I've always admired the exterior and the magnificent caged iron lanterns flanking the sides of the front door. Without ever stepping inside I knew, like the anticipation of a great gift, that the long stepped path to the front door would reveal amazing things. And boy, was I right!

  1. This is a stunning home. A classic Georgian mansion with loads of character. Great millwork. While the kitchen and bathrooms require updating, it has a great old world feel.
