Other things to note
The heritage value of 33 Hensley Street lies in its Maritime Vernacular influenced architecture; its association with one of the earliest planned subdivisions in the City; and its role in supporting the streetscape. It is a wood framed one and one half storey home. It is located among a mix of modern and 19th Century architecture. The designation encompasses the building's exterior and parcel.
When politician, land agent and trustee of the Central Academy, Charles Hensley subdivided his property into building lots in 1843, only two years after he had immigrated to Prince Edward Island, he created one the earliest planned subdivisions in the city. In order to provide access to the parcels of land, Grafton Lane was cut through the block from Richmond Street to Grafton Street. For a time, Grafton Lane was known locally as Davy's Lane in recognition of the family that owned a number of houses in the area. Some of the original homes are still standing, including 33 Hensley Street.
33 Hensley Street was constructed in approximately 1846. It was built in the Maritime Vernacular Cottage style, a style that was common throughout Charlottetown from approximately 1830 until 1860. Many homes like this still exist in the city, but have been altered with trim to reflect various style periods. Characteristics of the style include a rectangular plan, a symmetrical facade and a large centrally placed dormer. A representative of the type of home that was part of Hensley's early subdivision, it helps support the streetscape.
Since it is a heritage house over 100 years, you may feel the flooring in somewhere inside the house may not be level and it is one of the features we would like to keep as a heritage house.
