Property Description

This Home: Built prior to 1850, 290 Sydenham Street is a limestone and red brick semi-detached house restored and remodeled over the past 25 years into a light-filled 4-bedroom home on four finished levels.

Exposed limestone walls and brick chimney, timber beams, deep window wells, slate and hardwood floors, a steam room, a laundry nook hidden behind a curved door, all combine in a mix of tradition and surprises. The modern light-filled kitchen sets off stainless steel counters and glass backsplash against oak cabinetry. The common spaces — living room, dining room, stairways and halls — still retain the deep baseboards and trim of a modest 18th century house likely built for military officers at nearby Artillery Park. Large windows light the rooms. Pine floors grow deeper and richer in colour each year. Thick walls enclose the quiet interior space. A cedar fence creates a courtyard and secure parking.

Located half a block from Skeleton Park at the beginning of the Bay Street cul de sac, the house is downtown in the heart of the McBurney Park Neighbourhood Association catchment. A person standing in the side yard has a view down to the Cataraqui River. The front door is an 8-minute walk from the Grand Theatre on Princess Street, and from the back gate, a cyclist is five minutes from the center of Queen’s University Campus.
