THE COMEBACK KID



48 Aberdeen Avenue, Hamilton, ON circa 1860s



This home was last listed in June 2016 for $959,000 and quickly sold thereafter for a good chunk over $1.0 million. Now, just as your tears have dried up from missing out last time, you have your chance for a redemption offer! 48 Aberdeen is FRESH on the market and as charming as ever.





Fresh features include original wide planked pine flooring, cove archways, high baseboards, 10 foot ceilings, original fireplaces, skylights, a large deck off the kitchen and double car garage access at the rear with access to Chilton Place, leading into Markland St. 



FRESH FACT
This red brick knockout used to be two (more) modest homes (see the old map below) but has long been converted to a spacious single family residence. This history would be interesting to investigate further given the grandiose homes ubiquitous on this stretch of Aberdeen between Bay and James streets. A follower of mine suggested the former semis might have been servants residences for one (or more) of the larger surrounding estates. I think there might be some truth to that! Please share if you know anything that might unveil this home's curious history.

Fireplace sight-lines are the best kind

More floor 'porn'...out the door and onto the deck for some fresh air!

Can't beat the details like old door hardware

The mother of all vignettes. Newer addition leads to the double car garage below

Nick deck and even nicer neighbours to the West (drool-worthy views)
