Artist owned century home close to Toronto, Niagara and the Great Lakes
Haus • Kitchener ON Canada
Aufgeführt July 2022
We live in the historic district, in a beautiful century home. Walking distance to downtown, train station, and bus service. Our community is vibrant, with artists and musicians, small bakery cafes, restaurants and biking trails. A short drive out of town and you will be transported to another world…Mennonite country! Here you’ll see how Mennonites live, farming and producing beautiful handiworks. Be delighted by their way of transport, horse and buggies! Enjoy the typical dress of the Mennonites, and absolutely enjoy their home baking, summer sausage and maple syrup!
In less than an hour you can be in a major city, Toronto, and enjoy live musicals and fantastic restaurants, theater, professional sports, shopping.
In less than two hours you can be on a beautiful sandy beach, on one of the Great Lakes. Experience a sunset on Lake Huron, and you will never forget it.
Niagara Falls is less than two hours away, and it is one of the wonders of the world. Definitely a must see if you come to this area.
Our home was built in 1916, it is typical of the homes of our area. It is a very walkable neighborhood, mature trees, friendly people, and cafés and restaurants and public transit all just a few minutes walk away.
The city has beautiful parks and biking and walking trails.
Art galleries, museums, historical homes, library, are all very close to our house. The Grand River runs through town, and we often enjoy kayaking on it.
The house has four stories, including the basement and the attic, but guests will primarily use the main floor and the second floor.
There is a front porch for sitting, and a pleasant backyard with a wooden deck with table and chairs. There’s a fire pit in the backyard, it is legal to have fires here as long as you do it safely and wisely.

Our neighbourhood is called the Central Frederick Neighbourhood. The houses are the oldest houses in the city, beautiful brick homes, and mature trees line every straight. Children play freely, musicians sometimes sit on their porches and make music, and there are festivals and art walks happening often in Kitchener Waterloo. I am happy to provide ideas and information to you if you plan to come.
Zu mir nach Hause kommen
Toronto airport is 50 minutes away. We suggest renting a car from the airport, and it is very straightforward to get to our home. Alternatively, there is bus and train service to town. Although it is only a half hour walk from the train or bus station, if you have luggage it is easier if you just use an Uber or a taxi to get here.
Lester B Pearson airport is in Toronto, and it is 50 minutes away. There is also Waterloo Wellington airport, which is about 20 minutes away but it doesn’t offer international flights at this time.
A bus can be picked up at the end of our street, and that can take you down to the terminal where you can transfer to anywhere you would like to go. We also have a fairly new light rail system and you can pick that up near downtown, about a 20 minute walk from our home.
Grocery shopping is within walking distance, as are several restaurants.
