505 Talbot Street

These photos are from 505 Talbot (The Azure building), at the corner of Talbot and Dufferin.
Most of the apartments have extra tall windows in the bedrooms (impressive but also a bit intimidating lol), plus the views from the balconies are fantastic! Views were taken from the 6th, 15th, 20th and 22nd floors.

Collection of Machinery in Garage

This impressive selection of machinery was in the garage of a house I toured last week. From what I can tell, Deckel Maho makes cutting machines and CNC-controlled lathes, and Agie produces electrical discharge machines (spark machining)

Water Tanks in Garage

From a house I showed recently; apparently this property had issues with the well water, so these water holding tanks were installed in the garage and attached to the houses' water supply. Or as seen on the labels, perhaps they hold grape lime juice instead? LOL

Stunning Bathroom Design LOL

A collection of unusually decorated bathrooms, all from the SAME HOUSE! From a property I showed recently.

Morland Place

These pictures are from Morland Place in Owen Sound. While the property is well known for its beautiful gardens that are open to the public, if you are lucky when you visit the owner might invite you to view the inside of the manor itself.

It's an amazing property, made even more incredible by the fact the multi storey part of the house is actually an addition, designed and built by the owner himself (the original part of the house was built in 1919, while the addition started being constructed in the 70's, I believe)

Funny Things I See When Showing Houses

I see new things all the time when showing houses, and some of them make me laugh. Such as this wolf poster being a replacement cover for an electric panel. I don't think that would pass inspection lol. And the note about centipedes, by a basement light switch, was something else 😆

I recently showed this huge old home, that had a turret that was accessible off the attic space!

View from 744 Wonderland Road South

I was showing an apartment for sale at 744 Wonderland Road South recently; the building has a pretty cool feature, in that the exercise room is on the top floor, with views of the Westmount area, including Westmount Place. It sure beats a basement gym with no windows!

There's a rooftop patio too, but wasn't able to access it (requires a separate key apparently)

St. Thomas Elevated Park

I was in St. Thomas to have photos taken for a new listing and took the opportunity to stop by the city's elevated park. It offers some terrific views!
