Home's of the week, and Goat Weed..........

So this week's "Home of the Week," is a cute "cottage like" home from the outside on the front, but the $1.5 million price tag, suggests otherwise.  It's actually quite spacious because of the extension and because it is a heritage house, it's been done up very nicely.  The area that it is located in, is very pricey so that explains the price.

The "Condo of the Week," is on sale at $729,000 and parking is an extra $45,000.  I am guessing that is a one time fee for the purchase?  It's got a nice big window, but otherwise not for me.  Plus the building is butt ugly, don't you think?  It really does look like an office block.

This week's "Cottage of the Week," is ONLY $3 million, and for that you get an island and TWO houses!  I don't know about you, it doesn't really excite me.  Everything is fine.........but just fine.  What are your thoughts?

Gill's "Cottage of the Week," is in Port Carling, Ontario and on sale for $300,000.  Look at the view from the deck?  Very rustic inside, does need updating but for the price a lovely property.  

When I was at The Knitting Basket, I noticed all the insects on this bush.  Angie said it was Goat Weed?  Never heard of it myself, have you?

The condo building is awful, and I'm a fan of mid century architecture. But this looks like something from Stalin's Russia! Your cottage is the best of the bunch. If you put a bit of sweat equity and $100K into it, you'd have a lovely place and what a view! I'm guessing that it's not really commutable to the city, hence the price?

I've heard of Goat's Beard (aruncus) but not Goat Weed; it's really very pretty.

Loved the style of the first home, but if I'm paying that much it better be on a bit of property out in the country, lol. The condo's building IS butt ugly.

The thing that struck me most about the "Cottage of the Week" was ..who chose the rug in the kitchen?!
We have false goat's beard growing here,it always teeming with bugs.

The price of the Cabbagetown house is ridiculous in my opinion...but I have no desire to live in Toronto. I bet that place needs constant repairs. The condo is, as you said, butt ugly.

Actually it is a false spirea. We planted one in the backyard. Yesterday I was watching all the honey bees on it. Their pollen sacks were over flowing.
My parents live in the Parry Sound area and you can still get an actual cottage for under $300,000 there. If you are not on a popular lake the average person can still afford one.

I've never heard of that kind of weed.

Love the goat weed!
I know the Ceschia family, who sell in Muskoka, Port Carling. They have an office in Bala, where I lived.

I've seen goat weed but never knew what it was called - I wonder why it attracts so many bugs??

I have heard of Goat Weed but did not know what it looked like. !

I would have to be homeless, I guess. All those beautiful places are too big for my pocketbook.

Beautiful flower. It must be very sweet.

It's been a two snake week, no, a three snake week but one was in our minnow trap.

Thanks for visiting.

I have never heard of that plants either.

As for the houses, I will take your cottage over the others...I could make do with it easily for those views....

Jackie said...

Ohhhhh, I love your choice of cottage. Just perfect for getting away from it all.

God bless.

I liked the rustic cottage. It looks livable and I loved the views.
I don't guess we have goat plant here or at lest I have never seen/heard of it

My favourite type of home is the type that doesn't require too much effort to keep it clean and organized! I love small homes that are easy to maintain and very cozy!
