History is preserved at 13 Freeman Place. This over 4,000 square foot turn of the twentieth century home evokes the English craftsmen and materials contributing to her striking Tudor Revival architecture.
Revel in her attractive brick and stucco clad façade with high peaked gables, exposed roof beams, decorative bargeboard and tall leaded glass windows. The statement curb appeal is anchored by a large centralized 3-bay stained glass window with wreaths, swags and a sailing ship.
Her presence is enhanced with a single car, all brick garage attached to the side of the home with an ogee shaped brick arch and secret garden gate. The two structures are separated by an alley-like pathway between high walls which descends tiered levels to concrete steps which further meander several grades down to a resort style area with heated, inground, saltwater pool, plus a cabana/bar with hydro and refrigerator.
The inside of the home boasts 3 levels of above grade living space with 7 bedrooms (+den), 2 full baths, 3 half baths, modern renovated kitchen/sunroom, 32-foot double living room, and 3 fireplaces (one gas, another wood burning and the third decorative). The wood burning fireplace mantel is carved stone and unlike anything you’ve ever seen, adorned with oak leaves and a mythological Greenman keystone. Additional stained-glass windows grace the primary bedroom suite, one with roses and the other with water lilies.
So much more character to discover within this grand south Corktown/Durand bordering home facing the escarpment with city views in the back. Enjoy the close proximity to the shops and restaurants of James Street S, the Hamilton GO Centre, and the Bruce Trail. Come discover this secret jewel of an enclave behind St. Joseph’s hospital and prepare to call Freeman home.
