As promised, a second page of my favourite Hamilton houses...

Tiny Craftsman




Interesting front window


Battlefield House (1796)


Art Moderne


A very tiny carpenter's Gothic in Dundas


This should be out in the country




A tiny house


A cool house for a witch


Roach House, built 1854


A modern home built by Pigott Construction

A rearview rearview


Some modern designs...












A steel framed house built in 1958


Townhouses with great details despite being in a rough neighbourhood


Classy




Massive Victorian


Servants' houses



Wonderful stone


The gardens really make these ones


Gated homes on the Mountain Brow


French


A real mansion if I've ever seen one


Nice townhouses, Italianate again


Witherspoon Huouse, 1855 as you can see.


Skinny house






Smiley's Castle, 1854 Regency


Ontario Gothic


Very old houses


A long row of flat roof homes in various degrees of repair


Tudor Revival, very popular in several Hamilton neighbourhoods












Gambrel roof design


Old stone cottage, note the wrought iron on the porch


Ontario Gothic cottage row


Great townhouses in Stinson


And an interesting double


Another rambling Arts and Crafts home


A beuty up in Greensville


Great double house on the right


This is a huge stone house that is on its own little outcrop of the Escarpment. Totally inaccessible.


Wynnstay Estate, 1925


Porches are great!


Another Victorian right on the beach


A Gothic Revival home in Dundas


A little cottage


A lovely Georgian home in Dundas


Stone Second Empire, no longer a house


Rock Castle, 1848. This house is built literally on the slope of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Corktown. Apparently the interior of this house is spectacular, with 10 foot ceilings, moulded archways and elaborate curving staircases. Currently, the owners themselves live in the largest of 5 apartments. The property is difficult to access, so there is no good view of the house. Three and a half storeys face the opposite side, overlooking Hamilton and Hamilton Harbour.


Yet more stone




A small Second Empire home

Nice pictures! I don't remember some of these houses on the edge of the Escarpment. What neighborhood threads are those from?

Awesome! I was going to start mentioning my favourites but the list became too vast so to name just a couple I definitely loved the Sandyford Place and the Modern. Thanks for sharing.

Some of these pictures have never been seen before, some of them were in this thread:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=146487

I have tons and tons of Hamilton photos I've never posted on here, I may add some more houses to this thread.

I'm surprised to see houses like these in Hamilton, I would only expect to see such huge mansions in the Bridle Path neighborhood of Toronto.

Hamilton was once a wealthy and prosperous city. Even today there are many large mansions being built in the Hamilton area, especially in Ancaster, Flamborough and all around the Escarpment behind Burlington. The Niagara Escarpment provides some of the best natural scenery in Southern Ontario and there is a lot of wealth in the Golden Horseshoe.

It's a long shot, but if we get to the third page of this thread, I have another round of beautiful homes lined up.

Shit, if I were you? I'd eat yourself a Kit Kat Bar straight from the Trident Shoppe on Jarvis.

Thanks for the replies!

Looks like we may not make it to the next page (six more posts), but if we do I have another round of great houses and mansions, some never seen on SSP before.

Awesome, awesome thread. Some of the best, most ornate and most diverse housing in one single city on the North American continent.


My favorites - Overall, this one has the most amount of charm that really appeals to me:




But if money and affluence were my #1 priority, this one takes the cake:
