The historic Hydrostone rose from the ashes of the Halifax Explosion, offering security and comfort at a time when people needed it most. 5552 Duffus Street has provided a safe haven for generations. This end-unit, semi-detached home retains its original character, but has been lovingly updated with brand new kitchen cabinetry, marble counters, double sink, new refrigerator and dishwasher, updated plumbing fixtures, custom shelving milled by a local woodworker, renewed bath, refinished hardwood, and fresh paint. From the airy loft to the sunny glassed-in porch, the transition from old to new is seamless. With a prime location close to all city amenities, this home offers features usually found in suburban homes, such as side-by-side double parking, attached garage, a spacious and clean basement, and a large, fenced back yard with apples, lilacs, raspberries, currants, and blueberries. The home is steps from the splash pad and playgrounds at Isleville Park, and walking distance to shops and restaurants, Fort Needham, Merv Sullivan Park, the Halifax Shipyards and Dockyards. Cycle to downtown Halifax in ten minutes. The Hydrostone is a symbol of the courage and resilience of Haligonians. Make your own Hydrostone history at 5552 Duffus. Viewings by appointment.
