Community House & Home Real Estate

Historically Designated 704 Monmouth Road

Tree lined Monmouth road, with its red brick row houses is one of Windsor’s most iconic streets. Famous for its history around the man (and the whisky) responsible for creating this amazing little hub once known as Walker’s Town. Walkerville, as we know it today continues to be one of Windsor’s highly sought after areas that is perfect for urbanites. Highest on the list for walkability, a bustling community, some of the cities best restaurants and some pretty sweet architecture. The iconic street is stacked with homes designed by Detroit Architect, Albert Kahn, and built by the Walkerville Land and Building Company, only 4 of which have been granted historical designation.

This #bcl look into 704 Monmouth Road gives you the opportunity to imagine yourself here, living in this architecturally significant, century-old semi-detached house. The inviting and spacious living/dining room will lure you in and connect you to a chef’s kitchen, with loads of storage, that is perfect for entertaining your family and friends. And, when the weather is right, you’ll move the party to the renovated backyard that gives an additional 1500 square feet of living/play space. Chock-full of character and rich in history, 704 Monmouth Road has been updated throughout the years with a more mod con lifestyle in mind.

Recently reinvented by our Border City Living ‘restyling’ approach to home staging, we have blurred the boundaries between old and new in this 3 bedroom family home. With original characteristics like exposed brick walls and wood floors, solid doors and tons of natural light mixed with a symphony of modern art with colourful bright hues. All that and custom concrete furnishings create a bohemian atmosphere, that rejects the all-too-common impulse, to dress a century home with the period’s furniture and finishes.

Current developments like the Walkerville Stones, about to break ground in March, are meant to bridge the gap between Walkerville and Ford City. As well,  the Walkerville Power Building renovation is set to be the new home for many established local businesses. This includes one of our favourite eateries.  This core area of Windsor is only projected to continue to boom. Since the days of Hiriam Walker, there has – in our opinion – never been a better time to live in Walkerville.
