About this listing
All the character of a historic home with all the convenience of modern decor. Welcome to a great neighborhood, close to downtown.
The house was built in 1905, and features many historical details from that period, including the original hardwood floors, oversized trim, a pressed glass window, and an exposed brick chimney. It has many updates as well, including a recently remodeled bathroom.
Most of the city west of the property was destroyed during the Halifax Explosion - but this house survived - although some of the windows likely didn't.
It has been lovingly cared for over the years and now is part of a thriving neighborhood - an easy walk to so much the city has to offer.
The shed at the back of the property will be available for guest who wish to lock their bicycles.
Walk to downtown Halifax, universities, and the hospital district! The hip North End with it's trendy shops, restaurants, and craft brewery is an easy walk. A major chain grocery store and a pharmacy are just out of sight at the end of the street. The neighborhood is a collection of Victorian homes with mature trees. All the convenience of the city without the hustle and bustle on this side street.
Major bus route at the corner - very convenient transit service. Cab fare is under $10 to the downtown. There is a bike lane nearby - and the property includes bike storage if you need it.
The shed at the back of the property will be available for guests who wish to lock their bicycles.
Interaction with guests
I typically rent my home when I am traveling myself. If I am available I will meet you to show you around and offer suggestions for your stay in Halifax. Once you have settled in I will check in to be sure you don't have any questions or concerns. The rest of your stay will be private.
No smoking. No illegal activities.

I love to travel, but enjoy it most when I have the chance to 'live like a local'. I really enjoy shopping at a local market, cooking with local produce, and really building memories based on what it might be like if I were to move to the place I'm visiting. I love to downhill ski, bike, swim, hike, and do any activity that keeps me outdoors. I often travel with family, including my ten year old son.
