KITSUKSIS HOUSE! This Spectacular 'Samuel Maclure' Arts & Crafts Family Home was commissioned by & built in 1913 for Captain H.T.M Hodgson (the land surveyor who planned the townsite of Port Alberni). Maclure was renowned for using local materials & as with all of his designs, this home is situated on the perfect location on this property. The deep south-facing, full-width covered veranda accesses all 3 rooms at the front of the house via French doors. The grand bi-level entrance hall features gleaming solid Douglas Fir stairs, balustrades, beams, trims, window frames & floors; and Western Red Cedar finishes are seen throughout the entire home. One of the six bedrooms in this home, the 'Day Nursery,' once served as a schoolhouse for local children, with its own side entrance/ porch. The original Butler's Pantry is adjacent to the country kitchen. The spacious formal dining room features a gorgeous built in sideboard is surrounded by tall board & batt fir paneling topped w/a plate shelf & the beamed 9' ceiling features deep crown moldings. The same fit & finish is found in the large living room. Here, the brick fireplace features an oak & brass fender crafted from pipes & fittings from the decommissioned Royal Navy survey ship, HMS Egeria, that Cap't Hodgson's twin brother, Comm O.T Hodgson had made & gifted to the house. There's a cozy den with it's own little fireplace off the bi-level entry hall. The newly updated 3-pce bath w/heated floors makes this home wheelchair accessible, and a 2nd bdrm on the main. Traverse the stunning winding staircase to the upper level to find the primary bedroom with yet another brick fireplace & a private verandah. There are 3 more bedrooms (1 with 3 closets), a full bath, a W/C & laundry. There's a finished rec room & office area in the basement, as well as plenty of storage & workspace. Updates include gas furnace, H/W tank & permanent Interlock metal roof. This magnificent property must be seen to be fully appreciated!
