JUST FEELS GOOD!
Sometimes a house just feels good. Built around 1865 on the corner of Mahone Bay’s Kinburn & Main streets, this is one of those houses. Immaculately maintained inside and out with an abundance of personality. The interior features high ceilings that create a sense of volume while beautifully patinaed and professionally refinished softwood floors unite the interesting living spaces. Renovations in recent years succeeded in updating the house in a manner that was sympathetic to its original character. Elements of modern comfort and convenience like a main floor full bath/laundry were integrated without sacrificing any of the home’s charm.
The main level includes a cozy living room with toasty woodstove and dining room that opens to the kitchen wing which was added in 1997. The delightful kitchen features butcher-block countertops and high end appliances including a Wolf gas stove. From the kitchen walk out to the private side deck and large back yard. The upstairs is just as quaint and inviting. There are three bedrooms and a surprising amount of storage and closet space for an older home with many clever built-ins tucked into nooks and crannies. The very large master bedroom over the kitchen addition is an impressive space with cathedral ceilings & skylights, and a dormer window which provides lovely views over the back yard. A second bathroom complete with old fashioned tub serves the upstairs.
Step outside and discover your oasis in a ‘walk-everywhere’ location. The level yard is partially fenced so let the kids and the dogs out to play or relax with a good book under the dappled shade of the mature ash tree. With easy access to the Rails-to-Trails network, you have miles and miles of walking or biking adventures at your doorstep -- so, you’ll be happy to leave the cars parked in the paved double driveway. All in all, a feel good package with a feel good price!
