    I’ve really enjoyed these Canadian homes that you’ve been posting lately. They all have a very English flavor to them; quite different from the Victorian homes in the US.

    I agree with the comment above. I’ve enjoyed the Canadian homes as well. This home has some lovely details. And the rooms and hallways are very roomy and gracious. One of my favorite vacations was to St. John’s Newfoundland.

    Thrilling verticality combined with exquisite symmetry outside and wonderfully in situ original interior detail, (as well as some great later fittings), make this house something really very special IMO. I love it so much. Yes the painted detail is a loss, but it’s not the end of the world as the fine interior attests. The light in this house is divine. I’m really nuts for bright, sunny halls which are so often dark and cave-like. The Brit. Deco tile fireplaces are FAB, (though I’d restore the DR surround). Great current kitchen to work with! The original coal grate and mantle are rad: (mantle should be stripped). The original, wheel cut, colored glass panels are ENVIABLE. The interior shot of the pointy window is bitchin! Thanks’ agent! Top 50 2018 for sure.

    Great house. Seems to be mostly original, except for the painted trim but I could live with that. I lived and worked in St Johns many years ago…the people are great (shirt off their back sort of thing) but the climate is tough to take if you’re not from there.

    I agree with everything that has already been said, especially about the light and the glass, but I want to add that the lights in every room really got my attention.

    I wonder how hard it would be to talk the seller into selling some of their art with the house?

    The colored glass is at the top of my list of favorites from this site (there is a stained glass roof that will always be my number 1,) but I also really appreciate how this house has the feeling of being untouched. You could switch out furniture and let the BBC film in it. Yet somehow it is still comfortable and modern. It’s a jewel all the way around.

    Fantastic street view, too.

    I really love this home! On one of these Canadian posts I read that they won’t sell to Americans. Is that true?

    I’ve gone past this house every time I go to one of our malls. There are a lot of beautiful, large houses on this street.
