W.J. SOUTHAM HOUSE CIRCA 1905-1909

58 Markland Street, Hamilton, Ontario




This Tudor style home hasn't flown off the market, likely because the $1,449,000 price tag is a bit ambitious given recent comps are closer to the $1.2 to $1.3 million range. 



That being said, with the historic good looks and killer location she boasts, I don't blame 58 Markland and her owners for trying.



This 115 year old+ beauty is generous in size ( 7 beds + 3.5 baths over 4,835 square feet) and even more generous in character. Where do I start with my drool list?!

  • There's curved windows and radiators


  • Etched glass light fixtures
  • A sun-room with walls of century old beveled glass

  • Original wood paneling and floors
  • 10" baseboards
  • Crown moulding

  • 2 staircases
  • 3 claw foot tubs


  • French and pocket doors
  • Six, count'em, six fireplaces (one of which is located in the foyer!)






  • Spacious back porch



Need I say more?



As you can see, this home is exquisite. Located in the coveted Durand-Markland Heritage Conservation District she would make the perfect abode for large families or co-dwellers looking to share in a life and address of distinction.



FRESH FACT
The home was built between 1905-1909 by Stewart Whitten Architects for W.J. Southam, Esq.  He was vice-president of the Hamilton Spectator at the time and only lived at 58 Markland for 1 year.
