272 Park Street South, Hamilton, Ontario

The south-most stretch of Park Street South between Herkimer and Markland is row after row of historic head turners and the recent listing at 272 Park Street South is no exception! VIEW VIDEO:

Ivy Manor, no longer Ivy covered, was once a bed and breakfast. Now you have the opportunity to own this circa 1883 home of distinction featuring 3 gorgeously appointed suites.

And I can vouch for its 'FRESHNESS' as around 5 years ago (when we were house hunting this was on the market) we took a tour and were absolutely swooned by the sky high ceilings (12 ft), arched pocket doors, leaded glass and medallions and mouldings of pure plaster perfection.

Unfortunately things did not align and the opportunity was not ours. And to think, at the time, we could have owned this home and all its 5,200+ square feet of glory (above grade...another 1,700 sqft in the basement) for under $650,000! The property is now listed for just under $1.2 million. #DreamsOfYesteryear


The home is located directly across the street from the newly refreshed and revitalized Durand Park. A great place for family fun (splash pad) and community comradery (such as movies in the park). AND Walk-ability and wanderlust are aplenty. Several of the city's trendiest shops,salons, cafes and restaurants are at your door step -- not to mention the GO station plus mountain and highway access for those looking to commute. Lastly, close proximity to St. Joseph's Hospital and a myriad of health and medical offices truly places this home amidst the heart of everything.

  1. Could you imagine turning this into a single family home?

    Is that what you would have done when considering five years ago?
