Located right in the heart of Hamilton’s most desirable neighbourhood, this historic home is a whole vibe that’ll leave you saying, “you had me at hello.”
The James is one of 2 units in this fully restored and adored home that has the perfect blend of furnishings curated from the 70s and 80s with a minimalist aesthetic that instantly makes you feel lighter.
The Living Spaces
With bright white walls reflecting the sunlight that beams through its large windows, everything in this room, from a light green sofa to a cheerful pink armchair and 80’s neon sign, lends itself to relaxation and having a good time. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve added a flat-screen TV with streaming services directly across from the sleeper sofa, but…..if you’re looking for a more unplugged experience, the built-ins are stocked with some of our favourite board games. And if you feel so inclined, we think it might do you some good to take a cue from the sign and spend a little time dancing with yourself. It might sound silly, but even Healthline says it does a body good by increasing your self-confidence, coordination and putting a smile on your face. We’d love to see some of your photos of your solo dance sessions, so don’t forget to tag us on Instagram if you do.
****Just one thing, don’t forget there are neighbours in the other unit, so make sure to shut it down after hours and try to be light on your feet.
With room for four adults (3 comfortably), it’s no wonder this loft has become a favourite space for a girls’ getaway or a romantic escape from the routine and hum of Toronto. Although we’re situated in a walkable neighbourhood (close to all the coolest hot spots in Hamilton), these accommodations are so comfortable it can be hard to leave and explore the city once you’ve settled in…..we take full responsibility for that.
The master bedroom has been outfitted with a high-quality Casper mattress, known for keeping you cool at night. We’ve also provided high-quality linens and towels and installed independent climate controls for both the bedroom and living room where the sleeper sofa is, so the temperature will always be set to your preference for optimal sleeping conditions.
Get ready to sleep like a baby.
