About

This two storey house offers ample room for a family with two (or three younger) children – upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms, a large storage closet and a 3 piece bathroom – on the ground floor, there are a spacious front hall, dining room, family room, large eat-in kitchen and a 2 piece bathroom – and the basement provides space for storage, as well as full laundry facilities. Some families have made one bedroom into an office, if their children share the larger bedroom (the pictures show this configuration). The house is offered as fully furnished, but we can remove the furnishings so that you can bring yours. The house has a driveway with space for parking for up to two vehicles. There is a large back yard where you can enjoy eating out of doors and where the kids can play. There are numerous kids of a range of ages in the area. Sydenham Public School, for primary school aged children is 3 blocks away. The house was completely gutted, renovated and repainted; including a custom designed kitchen and new appliances, including fridge, stove and dishwasher, and washer / drier. Original architectural details have been restored, and include hardwood flooring and wooden trim throughout. An original sliding wooden pocket door can be used to separate the entrance hall and living room. The house is furnished, including bedroom furniture, a comfortable living room, and a dining room with space for six. All linens (kitchen towels, sheets and duvets, bathroom towels and floor mats), and a fully equipped kitchen, are included. Furnishings and linens can be removed if you wish to bring your own. Knox House, built in the 1800’s, is located in the heart of Kingston within a 5 to 10 minute walk of everything you need - the historical centre of the city, with Market Square farmers’ Market in the warmer months and the skating rink in the winter months, Queen’s University, City Park with playgrounds and water park, the Lake Ontario water front and Kingston Yacht Club, KGH and Hotel Dieu hospitals, and many wonderful shopping, dining and recreational activities. All of Kingston’s theatres and concert venues are within walking distance as well. A number of excellent primary schools, both public and private, are also within easy walking distance. The neighbourhood is very friendly, and well maintained, offering a nice mix of good quality student housing, and many restored single family homes.
