I commute through an interesting little part of Aurora a couple of times a week to do my shopping.
I house recently sold on Ransom St. The FOR SALE sign features a photo of the listing agent that occupies 3/4 of the sign. Was he selling the house or himself? At the top of the sign is the word SOLD, and immediately below "ABOVE ASKING." So what was the asking and what was the above?
Just around the corner on Temperance St. are four houses in various stages of sale/construction. The first is a newly built that is actually very attractive, on a corner lot. Beside it is a work in progress with a price tag of $1,750,000 and the next one recently sold. Just across the street is an Edwardian on a 66' x 160' lot with a sticker price of $1,250,000.
Then swing west onto Kennedy and you come across a marble megabuck number. Priced at $4,199,990. Why chisel over $10? This place would appear to contain more marble in its seven bathrooms than Carrera, according to photos. It wouldn't surprise me if the bathtub in the master was hewn out of a solid block of the stuff and then lowered into place via crane before the roof went on.
Where George and Kennedy intersect is a very attractive bungalow with an in ground swimming pool and a tasteful wooden fence for safety and privacy. To its immediate north there used to be a sweet little bungalow that was totally renovated by the elderly widower who lived there. Upon his death it got sold and now is "home" to an extremely large and high, and attractive, home with many windows overlooking its neighbour to the south. So goodby nude sunbathing or anything like privacy.
All of these are in compliance and require no approvals.
And further west along Kennedy is a multi-million mansion undergoing retrofitting. Beside a swimming pool and non-stop bobcat running back and forth with the "hole" - and diggers, the stucco on the front has been partially removed down to the TYVEK skin, awaiting what?
I suppose in a democratic society we are all free to do what we want with our money so long as the C of A and Council do not have a burr up their collectives asses.
