The Glebe House Tour, in support of youth programs of the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG), is back on Sunday, September 16 for their 18th year. The self-guided tour features five beautiful homes in the prestigious Glebe neighborhood.
36 Monk Street
The creative owner of this home is a self-described garage sale fanatic with a knack for spotting hidden treasures and giving them new life. Charming three season porches on either side of the home and vibrant use of colour throughout make this house a fun visit.
74 Ralph Street
Turn west into the courtyard off Ralph Street to find this hidden jewel of a home overlooking Brown’s Inlet. The owners fell in love with soaring ceilings and the peaceful setting. An abundance of natural light plays off the home’s Venetian plaster walls, creating a gorgeous backdrop for the stunning collection of art and mix of modern furniture and family heirlooms.
211 Fourth Avenue
Renovations to this gracious Glebe home focused on making it comfortable and maintenance-free for an active, retired couple. The real show-stopper is the serene three-season room and deck off the second floor — a cottage getaway with all the comforts of home.
19 Monkland Avenue
In renovating this grand old home, the homeowners respected its original footprint but gutted and rebuilt the interior with a gorgeous contemporary take on traditional style. Pay special attention to custom cabinetry throughout, especially the doors off the kitchen that appear to form part of a seamless wall of cabinetry but actually lead to an office and down to the basement. The third floor features a multi-generational playroom for this busy young family.
8 Jackson Avenue
This lovely home features an addition that flows seamlessly from the original part of the house. Throughout the home family photos, mementos and heirlooms are beautifully curated and on display, along with an amazing art collection. Be sure to take time to enjoy the gorgeous multi-level garden.
