2018 Homes of Character!

Spend an enjoyable afternoon on Sunday May 6th, 2018, touring five Homes of Character in the historic area of Port Dalhousie/North St. Catharines. This year’s tour will feature lakefront living at its finest. Enjoy a refreshment stop at St. John’s Anglican Church in Port Dalhousie on House Tour day.



Striking Heritage Home in Port

This lovely yellow heritage home enhances the corner of Simcoe St. and Dalhousie St. in Port Dalhousie. The very talented and artistic owners have melded the new with the old to create a comfortable and beautiful home. Very careful thought has gone into the renovations and decorating with beautiful results and an excellent use of open space. (Simcoe St & Dalhousie Ave area)



Mid Century Modern

Expanses of glass, multiple views and access – this house, built in 1967 on 1.5 acres of lakefront,  encourages integration with nature. Outdoors is an extension of the living space – complete with tennis court, pool, mini-vineyard and the owners’ favourite space – the “balcone” jutting out over the lake to extend the sunset views. (Shore Blvd & Lake St. area)



The Pillars

Stunningly transformed from an early 1900’s closed-in semi, this open concept home features awe-inspiring views of Martindale Pond and Henley Island. The main floor draws you in… through the living area, the large deck, and a five-tier deck down to the Pond. The highlight is the Master Bedroom’s view of rowers silently sculling by on the Pond. (Main St & Christie St area)




The Garden Cottage

This unique family home was built in Port Dalhousie in the 1950s.  While retaining many distinctive touches from that time period, the home has been tastefully updated most recently in 2017 by the current homeowners to provide a warm and welcoming open oasis to live – both indoors and outdoors. (Mackie St & Mary St area)




Inn the Pines

This early 1900’s era farm house was moved to its present site in 1967.  After undertaking a major renovation in 2016, this beautiful Bed & Breakfast is now open for business.  The main floor and three renovated bedrooms for guests will be open for viewing as well as the produce stand, garden and property.

St. John’s Anglican Church, 80 Main Street, Port Dalhousie

On House Tour Day, stop by for refreshments and historical tour at St. John’s Anglican Church, Port Dalhousie.

This heritage landmark is one of the oldest parishes in Ontario with roots dating back to the 1830s. View “The Windows of St. John’s”, a collection of 20 stained glass windows presenting Biblical themes and crafted of hand-blown glass.  A delight for the eye; a treasure for the soul…
