Description

"SMITTEN!"

If you love early capes you'll be smitten with this one!  Built sometime between 1825 and 1840 by William Kedy, this fine home would have been quite a showpiece in its day.  Immaculately maintained with most of the original architectural elements intact, roughly 2 centuries later it remains one of the finest heritage homes in Mahone Bay.

But this is not just a historic relic…not by a long shot!  This is a modern house, fully updated and comfortable without compromising the architectural integrity or soul of the home.

Beautifully proportioned principle rooms and high ceilings defy the notion that old Capes are dark and cramped…not so here.  The light filled interior is a delightful collaboration of authentic period detailing and contemporary comfort.  Wide plank flooring, single plank wainscoting, original doors, hardware & mouldings, the massive hearth with ‘beehive’ bake oven and built-in china cupboard in the cozy keeping room, and the distinctive curving staircase are some but not all of its surviving features.  For modern convenience there's a full bath and laundry plus a small guest room on the main level.  The upstairs features three large bedrooms including 2 with ensuite, an upgrade we think even William Kedy would have approved.  The surprisingly spacious home also features more built-in storage than you'd expect for its vintage.  

Living here you will be surrounded by 200 years of history with something interesting to look at from every angle.  Even the views out to the pretty streetscape, framed by the original 6-over-six windows, are all the more interesting viewed through the original panes of glass.

The house is set slightly back off the street surrounded by perennials on a good sized level lot. There’s plenty of room to expand the gardens, parking or perhaps build a garage or workshop. Centrally located, you’re a stone’s throw from the waterfront and all the amenities this popular seaside town has to offer.

Arguably one of the most recognized homes in a town blessed with a rich built heritage…if you’re like most, you’ve probably admired this handsome homestead for years as you pass by it on Main Street.  Don’t stop at Smitten…Now’s your chance to be next in the line of succession of proud stewards of this timeless Mahone Bay residence.
