Originally built in 1939/40 by N. Nicholson for his young family, this house retains most of its original details and charm. Updates have been sympathetic, the sash windows have been replaced with modern vinyl windows throughout, kitchen cupboards and floors have been modernized as well as the bathroom. In order to maintain the period feel the Cast Iron rads, hardwood floors, French-doors and stair case have been left intact and virtually untouched. Almost unheard of in these modern times is the sunporch on the west side (front) of the house so you can enjoy the afternoon sun in those shoulder months when there is still wrmth in the sun but the air is cooling. For the hotter days there is a large deck in the rear that is shaded by the tall trees that surround the back yard. The mechanical systems have been upgraded with a modern furnace delivering buckets of BTU's and a pellet stove in the family room that gives a warm fireplace feel while delivering cost efficient heat to help you keep your heat costs low.
When this house was built it was not even in Charlottetown, it sat just outside town limits and the owner's son had to walk to Spring Park School; his dad wouldn't pay the $10 it cost to attend a Charlotteown school. Now its a central location; within a few hundred yards you will find a Sobey's, a Shoppers Drug Mart, Prince Street Elementary, and other restaurants, services and shopping choices, add a few more yards and you are in Charlottetown's vibrant and historic downtown, the Birthplace of Canada and always an exciting place to be.
