33 Charter Oak Place, Unit #3-5, Hartford

33 Charter Oak 3-5

It is rare to find a truly exceptional home in Downtown Hartford, but 33 Charter Oak Place has a very unique opportunity available – a four-bedroom penthouse condominium.

Charter Oak Place, the original site of the Charter Oak tree that was used to hide the Connecticut State Charter in 1662, is a quiet residential street one block south of the Public Library in Downtown Hartford.

Number 33 is on the north end of the street, and is one of the many 19th century buildings that define the neighborhood. Built in 1860 for Nathaniel Shipman, an attorney and federal judge, the Italian Villa style Victorian home features large windows, high ceilings, preserved architectural details, and an offset veranda at the entrance on the left side.

The interior of the building was reimagined and updated in the 1980s. There are currently 5 units, organized around the original central staircase.

The most spectacular residence is on the top level. The main living area includes the open living room, dining area, and kitchen, which are all accented by an exposed brick chimney with wood burning stove. A tall Palladian window stretches all the way to the vaulted ceiling, looking east over the other historic buildings on the street. Numerous skylights ensure that the oversized space is bright and cheery, in addition to being fully updated and freshly painted.

There are four bedrooms and two full baths on the top level of the building. By combining unit 5 with unit 3, the current owners created a spacious and functional space that provides modern amenities, historic character, central location, and a feeling of home.

Everything has been updated, with modern finishes in the kitchen and baths. There is laundry in the unit near the master bedroom, and the entire space is air conditioned. The combined unit even comes with two garage parking spots.

The building itself is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture. Exterior details welcome guests, and embrace you on the private covered balcony with views of the Colt Armory dome. Touches throughout the building and unit are a constant reminder that 33 Charter Oak Place is part of the City’s history.

Everything within the Downtown area is within walking distance. The Library and Front Street district are just a block away. Colt Park is about a block away in the other direction. It’s a short walk to the Wadsworth, the central business district, Bushnell Park, and all the restaurants, theaters, and entertainment options the City has to offer. On those chilly days when you’re not up for a walk, the free Dash shuttle provides an additional option to move throughout Downtown.

Despite those advantages, what really makes this property special is that it feels like home. A large fenced front lawn is available for your enjoyment. Chairs line the front veranda, encouraging a conversation with your neighbors. The penthouse residence offers a unique space that can be enjoyed as a quiet refuge in the heart of the City or shared with friends as a central gathering point. This is Downtown living at its best!

33 Charter Oak Place, Unit 3-5, is 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2,313 sqft, and is available for $495,000. For more information about this amazing space, or to schedule a private tour, please contact Amy Bergquist at 860-655-2125 or AmyB@AmyB-RE.com.

Both units will be open to the public on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 12:00 to 2:00. Stop by to see them in person!
