It may not be the Canadian snowbird experience you envisioned, but this San Fran suite spot proffers unlikely perks you won’t find bathing under a Floridian sun. If south-of-the-border real estate is on your shopping list, the Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, should certainly be circled on your short list. Just a block away from San Francisco Bay and a 10-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge, this heritage site in the heart of a cultural hub offers a unique opportunity for fractional ownership. Starting at $169,000, these luxurious residences perched in a formerly famous chocolate factory can be shared by second-home seekers with taste.
KING OF THE CASTLE
The pedigree and tradition of classic English country architecture set in the stately township of King is an exclusive community to covet. Kingsview Manors, the latest collaboration of Genview Homes and Crystal Glen Homes, communicates quality through fine interior finishes such as gourmet Irpinia kitchens and bathrooms and exterior porticos and coach lights. Surrounded by a sizzling dining scene, the beautiful Humber River and its surrounding conservation areas, pleasant walkways, public transit and a picturesque pond, this imminent collection of 65 residences offers the best of old-world and modern-world charm.
