Last Sunday, two adjacent apartments were made available for viewing. They were both located downtown, above The Granary. They were both primarily empty, and I think it was nice to see them uncluttered although I am sure that period piece furnishings would have also been a treat: just a different sort of treat.
The stairs were not to be trifled with, but others were steeper than this staircase: not an attractive proposition for old knees. Once up there, however, one could envision living comfortably.
Of much interest was the skylight, which created a terrarium of sorts. A close view followed by two further views. I like the third pic through the doorway, especially with the blue paint and white trim framing the photo.
The two apartments were accessible to one another through the balcony at the front. I do like the light and shadow effect in both of these photos featuring Sue.
In theory, the two apartments could also be accessed via the back. The doors were locked, however: probably a good thing.
The kitchens and bathrooms were modern and appealing, but the tin ceiling was kept in one of the kitchens (last photo).
It was a pleasant tour. Thanks go to the Beckwith and Carleton Place Museum which sponsored the Open House and provided the tasty snacks glimpsed in the first kitchen photo, above,
*A Note in Passing: I have made and will likely continue to make my source photos a little bit bigger in case anyone every wants to click on one ... ar all. If anyone (presumably local) ever wishes a higher resolution copy for personal use, I will be glad to comply freely.
