Description

A Window Into History!

All houses have windows...they give the occupants what are called “views”, which focus our attention and enrich our daily lives.  The Albert Ernst Farmhouse has all of that for sure, but in addition it has a very very special window...a window into history, a view-plane which not only enriches one's daily life, but gives one a proud place in something so much larger and everlasting.  Just take a few minutes and go through the photographs or take the 3D virtual tour....picture yourself in each of these rooms, one by one.  Don’t rush it.  If you feel yourself being “transported” into that larger, everlasting thing, then this is where you belong.

As you stroll through generous principal rooms notice the period features and fine architectural detailing on display throughout…fine matchstick carving on the mantle, chair rails and built-in cupboards, gorgeous wooden cornices, the elegant winding staircase, 6-over-6 windows with period glass, original doors and hardware, and the massive cooking hearth in the keeping room.  And make sure not to miss the subtle traces of original decorative paint treatments on the wainscoting and paneled doors.

The museum quality authenticity of this 90-percent intact farmhouse stands as a testament to the skills of those early Lunenburg County craftsmen and the enduring quality of their construction.  In the words of the preservationist owner who has lovingly cared for the property for more than 30 years, it may be “the finest antique he has ever owned”.  Indeed, this home hasn’t just survived, it has thrived. 

The private pastoral setting with 2 barns and not another roof top in sight is the perfect backdrop for this unspoiled 19th century masterpiece, poised on its hillside pedestal surrounded by 13 acres of pasture, minutes from Mahone Bay and the modern world.
