This suite is a *NEWLY* renovated and Decorated 2 bedroom flat on the second floor of our mid 1800s Georgian rowhouse, one of six originally built to house the British officers stationed in Halifax. The unit is a 1 minute walk from the waterfront board walk and 1-5 min from some of the best restaurants, Seaport Farmers Market, Historic Pier 21 and many more. Modern updates and original character. Location is key when visiting Halifax and this unit makes walking the downtown a breeze.
With authentic exposed brick throughout and the original fireplace intact, you can truly feel the charm of the old city of Halifax in this flat. A private rear deck off the main living room and kitchen provides a unique escape from the busy city while the front windows allow you to look down on all the action the historic district has to offer. The waterfront, seaport farmers market and great restaurants are all in view from our property. Updated and well outfitted kitchens make this space great for preparing meals from local options pricked up on your travels. A new and modern bathroom also make this space a the perfect way to mix authentic history with modern amenity.
Our Georgian townhouse is located in the Old South neighbourhood of Halifax. This is a protected historic district that preserves the unique characteristics of our cities past. You will notice the Heritage Commission designation plaque on the entrance, received in 1982 recognizing the unique nature of the architecture of this row of houses. It is considered the most photographed housing block in the province. We are hopeful that our Air BnB venture will prove that history such as this building can be viably preserved, respected and enjoyed.
This location is the most walkable neighbourhood in Halifax. Located in the middle of the historic city centre, the unit is a five minute walk to everything you need. Only a one to two minute walk away is the waterfront boardwalk, which you can see from the front of the building. Once on the board walk, all that the waterfront has to offer from great views, restaurants and bars, museums and all the best tours and experiences, is at your fingertips. You can be dining at some of the finest restaurants in the city within minutes of leaving the door step in any direction.
There is a grocery store located a five minute walk from the unit, along with a liquor store and dry cleaning. The Halifax Farmers Market is only a four minute walk from the unit and is visible from the front side of the building. This market runs throughout the week but if you happen to be staying on a Saturday, you’re in luck! Vendors from all over the province attend the market on Saturday mornings to sell wares such as traditional crafts, wine and spirits, local roasted coffee, fresh French bread and pastries, local meats, hand made soaps and of course local produce! Next door from there is the Canadian National Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, a site where over one million immigrants to Canada arrived and cruise ships dock year-round.
Just 30 seconds from your doorstep:
One of Halifax’s quaintest cafes, The Wired Monk, serves to-go breakfast items and offers a lovely seating area that you can sit and watch the passerby’s on the street. Located directly across the street is Piatto, an artisan pizza restaurant that features an imported European wood fired oven.
Just 1-2 minutes and within sight of the door step:
