About this listing
There’s an Island expression “Home from Away” that perfectly captures the feeling of this apartment. It is set up for easy-care comfort with a gracious mix of contemporary furniture, island antiques and fine photography, Cook in the well equipped kitchen, enjoy the Island's bounty on the wipe-clean dining table, relax on the comfortable living room sofas. Two upstairs bedrooms (one king and one queen) share a renovated bathroom.
Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island, was laid out according to the principals of the Enlightenment in the late 1700’s. The city planners established a rectangular grid of five hundred lots, which makes it very easy to find your way around town. These lots, including parks, waterfront, residential and commercial areas remain the core of the down town today, and 82 Sydney is in the midst of this culturally rich area. It is less than a five minute walk to the board walk, the waterfront park and the marina as well as the legislature, cinema, theaters, galleries, shops, dance classes, Victoria Row, the library, great book stores, a mall, most of the restaurants in the city, the Culinary Institute and a weekly Farmer’s Market. A ten minute walk brings you to the 100 acre amenity-filled Victoria Park, or the Charlottetown event grounds, and a half-hour drive brings you to some of the best beaches on the island. Rain or shine, there’s always something to do.
The core of the house @ 82 Sydney Street, framed with massive 5” thick vertical timbers, was built by a liquor merchant at about the time of Confederation. For some time the house belonged to a family with eleven children – all girls – so many islanders have memories of visiting, playing in the back yard, and pulling a home-made doughnut out of the crock in the pantry. Now three lovely apartments, it has been up-dated and added to over the years, but still retains many of its original features. The current owners, from Massachusetts, have been coming to the island for decades, and have chosen this as the perfect spot.
Please note: Rentals of over one month will be governed by a separate agreement using an amended IRAC lease form.
The most important thing is to enjoy your stay and smile at the neighbors. Please don't leave a fire unattended, and please leave your pets at home. There's a dog in the other apartment though.
There is one parking space.
