Second Empire-Inspired Duplex In Uptown Saint John

178 Queen Street, Saint John

This block of Uptown Saint John is surrounded by the Bay of Fundy on all 3 sides, meaning you are bound to see and feel the calmness of our waters along any of the streets that weave through this area of the city. This home is true to the era that Uptown is classically known for with a curved roofline, dormer windows and decorative brackets. Being a duplex, this home offers 2 units with 2 bedrooms each, 2 off-street parking spaces and a privately fenced backyard. In both units are characterful fireplaces, original hardwood, ornamental woodwork and embedded wall designs. Along with its bedrooms, the upstairs unit features a kitchen + pantry that connects to the dining room where there is a beautifully built-in china cabinet. The living room connects to a separate wing where there is a staircase, master bedroom with large bay windows, getting ready station/closet and bright bathroom with clawfoot tub. The landing outside the master is large enough to be set up as a morning coffee nook, reading area or home office. Laundry is located in the basement where there is storage and a door for backyard access. The lower unit is similarly laid out and its bathroom has recently been updated. Breezy winds blow in with the waves all summer long, close enough to cast a salty breeze through open windows. Solid tree branches sway and reach over the sidewalks along Queen Street, frequented by walkers as Uptown is so packed-full of businesses accessible by foot or bike. A historic area that is fitting for all ages and personalities.
