With its prominent position on the height of four stepped terraces, its location adjacent to Mahone Bay’s three iconic churches and its views straight out the harbour, this Designated Heritage Home is one of the Town’s most admired properties. Built circa 1870, the property includes 2.2 ac., a barn and an outbuilding. It is valued for its association with the history of Mahone Bay and as a well preserved example of Gothic Revival architecture. The house is one of only two in Mahone Bay with symmetrical three cross-gables, each with a pointed window. Its heavily molded window hoods, strong eave lines and protruding bracketed cornices reflect the changing styles and prosperity of the Town over the years. The house features wood shingle cladding; cut granite foundation; six over six windows; two chimneys symmetrically placed; slender corner boards; historic interior details: high ceilings; secondary stairway in the kitchen ell; wide front entry hall, stairway and upper hall.
