On the South Shore of Nova Scotia, there are a handful of significant, historic and instantly recognizable properties. This Empire-style 1864 home, perched on almost 2 acres of rolling lawns and gardens overlooking the picturesque Mersey River, is one such property - a favourite backdrop for wedding pictures throughout time. \r\rCurrently operating as a B&B, the property’s sheer size, waterfront parcel, distinct architecture and generous layout provides a pretty rare template from which to create…or re-create one of the region’s signature homes as a single family estate. Entering the foyer draws attention to the curved staircase and skylight that illuminates both the first and second floor hallways. Original ceiling mouldings, hardwood floors, brick hearth and exposed beams reflect the 19th century era. The main house has four bedrooms, each with private en suite baths; one on the main floor. Balance of main floor includes a living room, reading library, dining room and access to separate owners’ unit. Upstairs finds three bedrooms with private en suites and a lounge area. The overall layout will permit a myriad of choices for conversion / renovation for a private home. \r\rThe owners’ residence is currently closed-off from the main house, consisting of the kitchen, dining nook, sitting area with a wood fireplace, living room with patio doors leading out to a private deck and yard. Two bedrooms and a 3-pc. bath with skylight up. A return to a lovely private family home still affords a number of routes forward for new owners…lots of room for extended family while retaining part or all of the separate 2-bedroom guest area / in-law suite. Property also includes an adjacent 20,000 sq. ft. undeveloped lot and 12,000 square feet of water frontage, located just across the road; amazing for swimming or access for a canoe or kayak…or simply enjoying the water’s edge. Just 1.2 km (1 mile) from the Town of Liverpool. 90 minutes to Halifax and international airport.\r\rDirections to property: From Liverpool, or Exit 19 - Hwy 103, travel toward Milton. Property on sign. Sign posted.
