Charlottetown apartment description

Located centrally, just steps from the heart of old Charlottetown, our legal luxury triplex is a former traditional centre-hall shingled house (originally built circa 1880) nestled on a professionally designed recently landscaped lot gently shaded by a stately century-old white ash tree.

Lovingly renovated in 2012, our main-floor 'Garden Suite' has a secluded 'get-away-from-it-all' feel that's rare to find in proximity to downtown. Inside, our freshly re-imagined airy and open-concept space features it's own private marble-tiled entrance, private cedar decked garden, three comfortable bedrooms (our comfy and efficient home office easily converts to accommodate 1 or 2 additional persons) with one queen and two full beds, featuring fresh, quality linens) each with it's own access to full bath or water closet. The suite features an L-shaped Great Room with a handsomely furnished dining and living area featuring hand-hewn beams, wide-plank flooring, art work by noted island artists, and a light-filled vaulted ceiling with operable skylight. The fully-fitted and equipped contemporary kitchen has 4 quality stainless steel appliances and a butcher block island. There is a separate laundry/storage room, a two-piece and an indulgent four-piece washroom with rain shower and deep soaking tub.

The property is situated on Upper Hillsborough Street, and is a brief ten-minute walk to Charlottetown Harbour, and the shops and restaurants of Water Street, Peakes Quay, Queen Street and Victoria Row. It's a few blocks to historic Great George Street and Province House, and an easy stroll to the waterfront boardwalk of 100+ acre Victoria Park with it's walking trails, sport fields, tennis courts and outdoor swimming pool. And we can't resist recommending our favorite independent coffee location, Young Folk and the Kettle Black, on Water Street!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I own Upper Hillsborough with my long-time friend and business associate, Steven. We're both Realtors with Bosley Real Estate Brokerage in Toronto, Ontario. Steven, who operates his urbaneer division, has been with Bosley for many years, and myself, many fewer! We've been fast and fabulous friends since meeting while attending the University of Victoria. I'm originally from Summerland, British Columbia, having moved to Toronto in 1988 to pursue my education and my career as an orchestral musician. In the time since, I've performed with many of Canada's finest ensembles including the Toronto Symphony, the National Ballet of Canada and the Canadian Opera Company, and played music in places as far flung and varied as Charlottetown, Hong Kong, and Edinburgh. Since 1999, I've been lucky enough to call Charlottetown home during the summer months thanks to my long involvement as a musician at the Charlottetown Festival.

                      Why the Owner Chose Charlottetown:
                      12 Upper Hillsborough at time of purchase in 2008 was a true diamond-in-the-rough: solid, tons of character, and well-situated to Old Charlottetown on a wonderful street shared with many fellow artists and artisans! We fell in love with it's quirkiness, it's history, and it's outstanding potential. The Black House boasts close proximity to all the things nearby that make Charlottetown a truly wonderful place to visit. It's our hope your stay with us will be one of your most memorable!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      The Black House provides true comforts of home and the close proximity to all things nearby that make Charlottetown a truly wonderful place to visit. It's our hope your stay with us will be one of your most memorable!
