This is perhaps the oldest home in Paradise, on a half acre lot with carriage house and workshop. This house 'circa 1824' is full of character in keeping with its 'heritage designation' and early use as the baptist parsonage. With wide plank flooring, crown mouldings, stripped pine woodwork, font and back staircases. At this age things are not square and level, but that is what brings out the true charm in this antique gem. Updated electrical, heating, bath and septic system along with other modern touches that make day to day living more comfortable such as the appliances in the kitchen, storage and closets. A large yard with 'rail trail' for walking/hiking/biking/OHV use. Current owners began to convert a loft in shop to an artist's studio with the addition of skylights. Pick up this nearly 200 year old home today for seasonal or year round use. (id:19312)

    Paradise indeed.

    Everything about this house says “peace.”

    We visited Nova Scotia in June, and I fell in love hard. This house is wonderful. I could happily live here.

    Wouldn’t you love to say I’m moving to Paradise? Interesting shower looks like just a pan and a curtain is that right?

      I basically have the same kind of shower in my house, only it’s bathtub sized in length. They’re wonderful for those of us who find it hard climbing in/out of regular tub type showers.

      I wish I liked snow…I’d buy this puppy in a heartbeat!

      Very European. One of the places I stayed in Italy had a shower like this, and a weird little bi-fold glass door. Well, I think it was more like “telescoping.”

    Bravo to the agent for doing a nice video and pics in this price point. Cute house

    How lovely! I would feel like Anne of Green Gables in there! Magical!

    Not what I expected from the outside. I absolutely love it! I wish I could move here. And what a price!

    I think all this place needs, is some landscaping out front for curb appeal. Maybe a dormer to open up that upstairs hallway. Good use of space in the bathroom. This is a wonderful little house, and I can’t believe the price! Is there something wrong with this house, that we don’t know about? It looks perfect!

    Love! the blue bedroom with fireplace, and the floors.
    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a cast iron tub with a cool back like this! How incredible it would be to soak in bubbles!

    That’s a pretty cool studio, how lucky they are!

    What a wonderful house … but where is the fridge? Could not spot in the photos or the realtor video (which is lovely by the way!).

      Maybe the fridge is next to the dishwasher and hidden by the open back door?

      Love the exterior and the huge yard. It’s just begging for a big vegetable garden and some wonderful, old-fashioned flowers.

      My husband and I honeymooned in the Maratimes. Spent a day just watching the tide come in on the Bay of Fundy (which is a couple miles from this house). Amazing sight when the difference between low and high tide is 40+ feet. Loved the area and wish we’d spent more time in Nova Scotia.

    Can Americans own property in Canada if they are not citizens?
