Located centrally, just steps from the heart of old Charlottetown, The Black House is a former traditional 1880's centre-hall shingled house nestled on a professionally designed recently landscaped lot gently shaded by a century old ash tree.
Located four blocks to the centre of old Charlottetown, our legal luxury triplex is a former traditional centre-hall shingled house (originally built circa 1880) nestled on a thoughtfully designed recently landscaped lot gently shaded by a stately century-old white ash tree.
Substantially renovated and newly furnished since 2009 (including all major building components to ensure your comfort and well-being), our top-floor Attic Atelier suite has a secluded 'tucked under the eaves' hideaway charm that's rare to find in the downtown core. Inside and out, our airy sun-drenched space features its own private entrance, ensuite laundry, blonde wood floors, beadboard trim and six quality appliances. This suite boasts two sun-dappled bedrooms (one queen, one full, featuring fresh, quality linens) each with operable windows and remote-controlled skylights that affords each bedroom the benefit of fresh island summer breezes. The well-appointed living area with its flat screen television and comfortable linen settee, can convert to accommodate one or two additional persons for sleeping by closing the pair of pocket french doors. The living space opens to a generous sky vista terrace with seating and barbecue. It's a magical treetop perch. The open plan kitchen with its built-in banquette and round dining table is fully-fitted and equipped with quality stainless steel appliances. It's the perfect place to cook and unwind. And for those who love the indulgence of a spa, our four-piece washroom features an over-sized rain shower, deep soaking tub, and sun-kissed treetop balcony.

I own Upper Hillsborough with my long-time friend and business associate, Steven. We're both Realtors with Bosley Real Estate Brokerage in Toronto, Ontario. Steven, who operates his urbaneer division, has been with Bosley for many years, and myself, many fewer! We've been fast and fabulous friends since meeting while attending the University of Victoria.
I'm originally from Summerland, British Columbia, having moved to Toronto in 1988 to pursue my education and my career as an orchestral musician. In the time since, I've performed with many of Canada's finest ensembles including the Toronto Symphony, the National Ballet of Canada and the Canadian Opera Company, and played music in places as far flung and varied as Charlottetown, Hong Kong, and Edinburgh.
Since 1999, I've been lucky enough to call Charlottetown home during the summer months thanks to my long involvement as a musician at the Charlottetown Festival.
12 Upper Hillsborough at time of purchase in 2008 was a true diamond-in-the-rough: solid, tons of character, and well-situated to Old Charlottetown on a street shared with many fellow artists and artisans! We fell in love with it's quirkiness, it's history, it's outstanding potential and it's close proximity to all the things nearby that make Charlottetown a truly wonderful place to visit. It's our hope your stay with us will be one of your most memorable!
