With its prominent position in the heart of Mahone Bay, and its four stepped terraces, this well preserved example of Gothic Revival architecture is one of the Town’s most admired properties. Built in the late 1860's for one of Mahone Bay's preeminent families, the 4 bedroom designated heritage property has been respectfully maintained and updated to accommodate modern family living. Enter through the grand hall to your casual and formal living spaces, including a dining room well suited to host large family gatherings. Or enjoy a glass of wine in the shade of your majestic maple tree in the 2.2 acre yard, while overlooking the yachts in Mahone Bay harbour. Stroll past Mahone Bay's three iconic churches, to wonderful local restaurants and artist's galleries. The property contains two charming outbuildings - a garage and a two storey barn, which would make an ideal guest house or artist studio, with an unobstructed view of the water. Modern updates include French country kitchen, new bathrooms, fresh contemporary colours and a Nest thermostat to control interior temperatures from anywhere in the word on your smartphone. The house is valued for its association with the history of Mahone Bay and is one of only two houses 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. This is a house that guarantees wonderful memories for generations to come.
