Steeped in glorious character, this exceptionally spacious and well-appointed all-brick century home presents an excellent rental income opportunity, featuring three apartments, one on each floor, each with its own amenities, entrance and electricity meter, plus boasting a prime central Port Arthur location, within walking distance of the marina, restaurants, shopping, a health clinic and more.

Live in one apartment and rent the other two. Or rent all three.

On the main floor and including the basement, the first apartment features a spacious living room with large picture windows and wood-burning fireplace, large updated eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms, family room with wood fireplace, new two-piece bathroom with new vinyl plank flooring, new four-piece bathroom, large centre hallway, as well as a laundry room and work room. Refinished white-oak hardwood flooring graces the living room and two bedrooms, while the third bedroom has refinished oak hardwood flooring. The third bedroom is smaller and could be used as a den, hobby studio, TV room or children's play room.

The apartment on the second floor features a spacious living room with several windows and a wood-burning fireplace, kitchen, two bedrooms, four-piece bathroom, as well as its own laundry room. Oak hardwood flooring gleams in the living room and both bedrooms.

Featuring new vinyl plank flooring throughout most areas, the third-floor apartment has a spacious living room, eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms and a full four-piece bathroom.

The character highlights of this century home are exceptional and impressive — decorative, recessed and corbelled brick work; a pyramidal roof with two gabled hips and dormers; intricately designed chimneys with corbelled tops; Simpson Island sandstone window sills; decorative leaded windows throughout; glass-block windows; and crystal chandeliers.

New painting offers a fresh appeal throughout the home. Other quality updates include a newer roof and new furnace.

The yard is private and has numerous mature trees and shrubs. Ample off-street parking is provided in the large double driveway. There is also a detached single garage.

Please call or text 807-474-6994 today to arrange a personal showing of this remarkable character home with three spacious and well-appointed apartments, located in an excellent and central Port Arthur neighbourhood that is close to the marina, restaurants, shopping and more.
