Wednesday, I had the pleasure of informally touring the properties being featured on Saturday’s House & Garden Tour. What a great time I had, chatting with the homeowners and taking random photos here & there along the way.
The homeowners are infectiously enthusiastic, even as they stress a bit in these last few days of preparing for hundreds of guests to their properties. What a monumental commitment – I can’t imagine getting ready for that kind of company!
The first half of my excursion was along Granville Road, where I stopped at our four heritage properties for 2016. The oldest of these dates back to 1769! All have very unique characteristics, and have been lovingly restored and rejuvenated over the years by various owners along the way. And the gardens surrounding these homes are all quite different as well, and all very beautiful. I could have taken photos for hours, but tried to limit myself a bit.
Here are a few random photos from my Granville Road excursion:
My next post will focus on the four Fortier Mills properties – with an entirely different flavour, and modern construction that honours the rich heritage of the area. (Here’s the link to Sneak Preview – Part 2)
