I love finding heritage homes on the market and this time we’re heading east to downtown Halifax and onto the historic Morris Street. This well known block was originally settled by wealthy merchants and prominent citizens in the late 1700s, and now a piece of Canadian history can be yours.
When you first step inside the phrase “they don’t make them like they used to” comes to mind, and that couldn’t be more true. Everything from the hardwood floors, stonewalls and to the fireplaces screams old world charm, and it honestly still looks damn near new.
Inside you’ll find four bedrooms and three bathrooms spread out over the three levels that spans just over 3,700 square feet. There are of course modern touches throughout including the lighting, modern appliances and one of the coolest chef’s kitchens we’ve seen in a long time.
The other surprise for me was the outdoor space that 5270 Morris Street has just out back. Once you step outside you’re instantly transported back in time and into your own private garden and terrace. There are very few homes downtown that have this kind of backyard and I’m ready to pack up and move out east already.
Location wise, you’re so close to it all as well here with the cities best restaurants, theatres and nightlife is literally out the door and walk down the street. You can see why we’ve clearly made this place our home of the month as there’s just nothing at all like it on the market.
This stunning heritage home in downtown Halifax is now on the market for $1,080,000 CAD and that’s a great deal in our opinion. If you’re interested in making this your new home you can give Donna Harding of Engel & Volkers a call via 902-223-1000 to learn more.
