Welcome to 55-57 Dorchester Street, a masterfully restored heritage property in downtown Charlottetown. In a soothing warm yellow, this Georgian-inspired, duplex-style residence stands among historic buildings, graced by ginkgo trees and designated street parking. The rare drive-through carriageway, a remnant of its past as a hostelry, highlights a genuinely unique feature in Charlottetown's history. A top PEI interior designer meticulously completed a recent renovation, blending historic integrity with modern extravagance. Floor boards from decommissioned merchant ships are revealed throughout the interiors. Each unit's main level offers spacious kitchen, living, and dining areas, opening to a private courtyard-style yard with lush grass, flower beds, and a tree-lined fence. This serene retreat balances privacy and beauty. Unit 55 features two second-level bedrooms, including a primary suite with a newly renovated ensuite bath, walk-in closet, and laundry. A guest bedroom with an attached powder room completes this level. Unit 57 offers a second-level lounge/living room, a bedroom, and a stylish bathroom with a walk-in shower and laundry. Both units boast finished third levels with versatile loft spaces where time stands still and a soothing feeling at home is undeniable. Constructed in 1790, 55-57 Dorchester Street holds significant heritage value. It once served as a hostelry where the Bishop of Quebec celebrated Mass. The property has been home to notable figures and has played a pivotal role in the local community. Georgian architectural elements, symmetrical massing, a gable roof with Scottish dormers, and simple mouldings highlight its timeless design. This property adheres to the city's new short-term rental regulations, allowing rentals and making it ideal for those looking to blend residential and rental opportunities. Situated in the heart of Charlottetown, 55-57 Dorchester Street offers an unparalleled blend of historical charm and modern convenience. (id:54293)
