Located in the historic quarter, Devon Place, is built in the classical revival style & likely the best example of this in the province! Believed to have been built in 1843, it’s etched with the who’s who of Newfoundland & its notable occupants. Devon Place is sure to impress the most discerning buyer with recent improvements, seamlessly blending the original characteristics of its build with modern amenities & comforts. The main floor features outstanding principal rooms, argued to be the finest in the city, creating the ideal space for hosting large gatherings & functions. The entertaining sized living room, with incredible plaster detailing, walk in bay window, elegant fluted columns, & wood burning insert adjoin with the dining room, featuring unique paneling, custom coffered ceiling, propane fireplace insert & bay window & provides access to the courtyard and English garden. The cozy drawing room & chef’s kitchen with powder room complete the main level. The character staircase leads to 3 bedrooms, two with new ensuites, third updated full bathroom (easily connectable to create third ensuite), & convenient laundry/storage room. The newly created top floor flat, with open concept design, consists of the living room, eating area & full kitchen, two bedrooms & full bath. Incredible opportunity to operate a luxury boutique hotel with top floor flat, perfect for an Inn-Keeper. Extensive renovations/upgrades completed throughout the past decade are too lengthy to list (detailed list upon request). Lower level suitable for storage & convenient two-car driveway. Enjoy Devon Place as a stunning private residence, or let your creative imagination consider commercial options. A must see!
