VICTORIAN GOTHIC REVIVAL circa 1846

40 Locke Street South, Hamilton, ON

This very exciting piece of BRICK is truly one of the oldest homes in the area.




The original agreement of purchase and sale (see image below) is  dated June 1846 indicating David Beasley sold the property to William Harris for 75 Pounds Sterling ($138 Canadian) 168 years ago!

All historical documents come with the purchase of this home, now listed for $469,900 with an open house this Sunday (June 15, 2014) from 2-4pm. View listing HERE.

FRESH FACT
  • This property was listed for $109,900 in 2010 and sold for $130,000. I recall being intrigued my the property 4 years ago and only wished I had made the investment back then. There's no doubt it will sell this time around, and fetch a nice profit despite the investment to renovate and restore.
