This restored historic home is within walking distance to downtown, and is 12 minutes for the airport. It is in a quiet neighbourhood, and is close to St. Vladimir's Cultural Centre. The home is decorated with elegant antiques, including an 1876 Emerson square grand piano (and two keyboards), and cast iron tubs. This was highly recommended by one of our board members.
