121 Edgewater Street, Mahone Bay
Price: $ 595000
Everybody seems to know the beautiful Three-peaked House on the Hill! With its prominent position sitting atop four stepped terraces at the head of Mahone Bay harbour, 121 Edgewater Street is undeniably one of Mahone Bay's most recognized homes.
A fine example of Gothic Revival architecture from the late 19th century with its striking three cross-gables, the home is ideally situated, elevated high above the road on a natural rise of land that lends grandness to the property, and affords gorgeous views of the picturesque harbour.
Inside, a spacious French country kitchen with woodstove and updated bathrooms meld with an abundance of original detail to create that perfect balance of old and new. The grand front hall and staircase speak to the provenance of this significant residence, and well-proportioned principal rooms on the main level, including a formal dining room, serve for comfortable casual living, or elegant entertaining.
The focal point of the second floor is an impressive upper landing gallery, perhaps the most unique feature of this distinctive home. Tall Gothic dormers give height to the three bedrooms at the front of the house, plus pretty views of Mahone Bay harbour through the trees of the terraced front lawn. The master features an adjoining dressing room, and in the rear ell is a great hobby/studio space with back stairway to the kitchen below.
Outside, there’s a level back yard with large deck and garage/workshop building, plus nearly an acre of lawns and gardens.
Arguably the most coveted location in town, the very private dead-end offshoot of Edgewater is a fascinating streetscape of just 3 significant and beautifully maintained historic homes. This peaceful enclave seems a world away from the bustling town center, but a scenic 5 minute stroll along the waterfront takes you to the very heart of the downtown core.
NOTE: This property is pending subdivision. The original 1.4 acre parcel is being divided with house and garage offered on .88 acres. The remaining .52 acres with barn will be accessed off Orchard Street. The whole property, unsubdivided, is offered at $695,000.

TOWN OF MAHONE BAY: Located on the “old-road” offshoot of Edgewater Street (a quiet dead-end street of just 3 homes). Entering Mahone Bay from exit 10, take a “very sharp” right turn just as you come to the first of the famous “3 Churches” as you come into town (Trinity United Church). Civic #121 is the first home on your left. Look for the Red Door Realty sign!
