Property Description for 101 - 103 PRINCESS ST
History has been recorded more than once in this commercial storefront recognized by the Canadian Register of Historic Places as the John Johnston Building but more locally known as McKee For Keys. Built after the Great Saint John Fire and rich with heritage value, this 2-storey bulding has supported many with 2 storefront spaces, owners suite on the upper level and separate brick Carriage House around the rear. Locals have passed by this ground level storefront since the late 1800’s, remembering it by its classic Uptown recessed entrance, transom windows, wide cornice and decorative wooden brackets. While upstairs, a modern and spacious owners suite hosts a master bedroom, kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, second bedroom / sitting room and bathroom, all contemporary yet still possessing some of the same character elements as the exterior. The Carriage Houses’ complexion is charming, with 2 levels of apartment living inside a brick trophy with opportunity to have an office & studio blend here. Princess Street has a reputation of being one of the most tree-lined centrally situated streets in Uptown Saint John. Bars, pubs, 2 microbreweries, 2 pizzerias, patio eateries, 3 churches, doctors’ offices, cafes (board game and beverage), are only the beginnings of the bustle happening in and around Princess Street. In an area as notable of heritage as Uptown Saint John, the John Johnston storefront only aides in bringing out this Port City’s truest historic colours.
