About this listing
Our 130-yr old semi-detached home located in historic, downtown Kingston sleeps 4. Original hardwood flooring, fully stocked kitchen, deck & garden patio, fresh linens, WiFi and parking. Steps to waterfront, City Park, Farmers Market and restaurants.
This large brick semi-detached house is a prominent and important building in the heritage district of downtown Kingston. The space consists of a large dining room, living room (with full-sized pull-out sofa bed), fully-stocked kitchen, one bathroom and one bedroom (with Queen-sized bed) which opens onto the backyard deck overlooking the patio and garden.
The building was erected no later than 1878, as it appears with occupants in the 1879 street directory of Kingston. It's first known occupants were a jeweller named John Smith and Mrs. Francis Lawson. Reverend George Ferguson bought the property in 1913, and is still listed as a resident in the 1923 directory.
Some historically notable features of the building's exterior include the tall stone foundation, 2-storey bay windows and fluted columns flanking each tier featuring Corinthian capitals. Gable ends above the towers' flat roofs feature scrolling brackets which support heavy wood hoods over the windows. A sunburst design is nestled under the apex of each garble's bargeboards. The bargeboards have a series of rectangular and square recessed wood panels. Sunbursts are also found on the tympanums of each of the dormer on the roof of each inner bay.
You will have access to the entire space - backyard, deck, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Nothing will be shared. You will also have access to our laundry machine and all kitchen amenities and are welcome to anything in the fridge. There will be cereal, milk, coffee and tea (and usually other things like yogurt and juice) in the kitchen.
Interaction with guests
