Historical and beautifully restored Victorian Home in Bridgetown in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia

On a quiet street in the center of friendly Bridgetown, minutes walk to all amenities including Elementary and High School, town pool, parks, playgrounds, churches and Main Street. The property has a large two sided garage wired (own panel box) for a wood working shop or room for a vehicle plus heaps of storage. A small garden for veggies has been well cared for and already reaps an abundance of strawberries, rhubarb and raspberries. A well-established perennial garden defines the perimeter of the corner lot however the yard maintenance is minimal. The cherry tree, cedars, juniper, quince, roses, dogwood and holly are all highlights of the exterior of this property as is the front porch with original carved pillars and newly constructed rear deck. The most distinct and unique feature of the property is the dry stone wall and hand-laid cobblestone driveway.
Inside the home, many hours of love and labour have gone into restoration. The kitchen floor is 100 year old pine boards with custom cabinetry made from antique tongue and grove. There is a dishwasher and energy efficient fridge with the bottom freezer compartment. The kitchen sink is the cast iron original and the cupboards have been enhanced with bead board and attractive hardware. The countertops are 1.5 inch rock maple butcher block. Just off the kitchen is a convenient ½ bath and laundry room with painted wainscoting. New LG front load washer and dryer are negotiable with purchase of home.
The front entrance is spacious with an original cast iron radiator, hardwood floor and milk glass pendant fixture. The large dining room and adjoining living room complete the main floor plan. A stained glass and bay window flood the open space with light and the newer cast iron Vermont Castings Wood Stove keep it warm and cozy. The floors are original mix of hardwood and softwood and a creative treatment honours the original tin ceiling.
A beautiful staircase and porthole window beckon you to the second floor where a large landing can serve many purposes as can the front room. The home has three bedrooms with a large master with bay window and walk-in closet.
The upstairs bath is a dream. A separate bath and shower room offers privacy and solitude. The tub is a reproduction antique claw foot soaker and the shower is a large separate stand-up. The bathroom is very large with lots of storage and custom cabinetry made from vintage windows and doors.
The unfinished attic offers more storage than you'll ever need and could be refinished as a studio, guest room, office or master suite. The basement has a poured concrete floor with dutch drain and has never flooded in the six years we've been here. The home has hot water heating and a combination wood/oil furnace that works great. We have heated the house at a comfortable 24+ degrees all winter on six cord of wood, no oil. The electrical was upgraded to 200 amps.
