Charlottetown house description

4.5 Star Rating by CANADA SELECT: This property was built in 1900 for Robert Palmer, this 2 1/2 story home has been completely gutted and renovated with everything new. The only pieces remaining that can be seen are the railing from the main floor to the second floor and the front and back fascia at the roof line. You will enjoy this modernized home with hints of antiques throughout the home, from furniture to old wooden island buoys which are hard to find these days. A nautical theme has been created as you will see in the photos. A lot of the original artwork you will see on the walls are from local Island Artists. This property is a rare double lot in downtown Charlottetown offering a driveway off both Hillsborough and Dorchester Streets. The main and second floor are 1008 sq.ft. each, the third floor is 800 sq.ft. You can gather around on this large private deck off the kitchen, which comes with bbq, patio chairs and a large table. You will enjoy a water view from each floor, and be comfortable in this spacious home as you relax on your holidays. The third floor has a king size bed. The second floor has a queen size bed. There is a full washroom on the third floor, two washrooms on the second floor, one having a 10' rain head and two body spray nozzles and a two piece washroom on the main floor.

The City of Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee has presented Stephen Taweel with a City of Charlottetown Heritage Preservation Award on February 2013. The Prince Edward Island Heritage & Museum Foundation Award was presented by the Lieutenant Governor Frank Lewis to Stephen Taweel, the owner for the work done to preserve this 1900 home in February 18, 2014 at Eptek.

The interior and exterior were designed with the help of Carter Jeffrey of Hunter River, PEI for drawings, layout and elevations. The interior and exterior finishes by Designer Sandra Gayle of Toronto, Ontario.

Other Amenities

  • There is soo much to do on PEI. For those who what to simply tour around the island, well, I always recommend 3-4 full day trips. It simply takes that much time to really enjoy each day to its fullest here on PEI. Then in between each day, simply relax in town, go to one of our finest restaurants where our Chefs of today are world class. Visit Beaconsfield, the Basilica, the Confederation Center of the Arts, the Province house where the Birthplace of Confederation was born....moreless

One of the nicest things visitors like about this location is that you can walk two blocks to the waterfront and walk along the boardwalk for 45 forty-five minutes, all along the water, and then walk back, stop at one of our coffee shops and relax.

The convention center is 5 blocks away, restaurants are 3 blocks away, entertainment is 5 blocks away, the hospital is 3 kilometers away. Sobey's Groceries and Superstores are a few minutes away. Beaches are 15, 25, 45 minutes away, they are all reasonable close.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I have graduated from UNB - University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, N.B. with a Bachelor of Science of Engineering Degree in 1981. I have worked in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates for over 5 years in the High Rise Construction Industry. I have also worked in Toronto for 21 years mostly as a Project Manager in the High Rise Construction Industry. I returned to PEI in 2008 to spend time with my parents. My father passed away 3 months later, my mother is still doing great at 83. I own and manage a commercial plaza in Charlottetown (Kirkwood Mews) and I am working on developing a new commercial property next to the Kirkwood Mews on University Ave. I also manage this property, the Taweel House in the Downtown Charlottetown and a cottage rental in Stanhope Beach, PEI which is also on VRBO. I am the past Chair of the CDRA - Charlottetown Downtown Residence Association.

Why the Owner Chose Charlottetown:
It is one of the nicest properties in the trendy Downtown 500 Lot area just 2 blocks from the waterfront. Central to everything in the downtown and all of Prince Edward Island. Minutes to the best restaurants, bars, entertainment and art galleries. It is a double lot, has great character and charm. It has lots of parking. A gem today and will only get better every year as the Downtown area continues to develop and grow.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quality Tourism Services Inc. has inspected this property and has been given a 4.5 STAR * CANADA SELECT rating!! This beautiful property is very central to everything! Great area to be in, 2 block walk to the waterfront, walk a 45 minute route all along the waterfront and a 20 minute walk back to the house, stop in to the STARBUCKS on the way back, just 3 blocks from the house. The property is also just 3 block walk to great restaurants, entertainment, theatre and more. This property has 4 - 12,000 BTU portable Air Conditioning units for your comfort on those hot and humid days! There is one available on the third floor bedroom, two in the second floor, one in the bedroom, and there is also one on the main floor. Parking is an issue in any city, well this property has two driveways, and it can park up to 5 cars. You will be parking in the west driveway very convenient as it's right outside the back entry doorway.
