There are few buildings more recognizable or prominent among local historians than this lovely Victorian Gothic on Main Street in Liverpool. The property is featured in South Shore; Seasoned Timbers, Vol. 2, published by the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia (1974). In 1914, the Liverpool Advance newspaper considered it to be one of the show places of the South Shore, with its skillfully curved Mersey River Gothic window, lancet windows and elaborate under-eaves trim work. This ornate style, as noted at the time, was considered more typical of French Gothic Church architecture. A residence and doctors office for over 100 years; more recently apartments, this gem is being made ready for its next chapter. Given its historical mixed use as office, residence and rental units, relatively large lot and exquisite location the property should appeal to the imagination of entrepreneurs, contractors, developers and visionaries. Liverpool is the hub of the South Shore, its miles of white sand beaches, resorts, seafood restaurants, lakes and incredible outdoor and cultural activities. A new roof is being installed and the interior has been cleared. Ex# 90496 (id:2471)

    Imagine a claw-foot tub in front of that cathedral window. Heaven

    Love it that it’s another British city name brought to the New World. In this case, they also appropriated the river name (Mersey) that flows through the city as well. Cool. Ferry Cross the Mersey from the 60’s anyone?

      Great song, brings back so many memories of the British invasion.

    My heart aches for this house. Those windows in that bathroom. Oh sigh. Oh Drat. Oh darn. Aches.

    Given how the original floor plan was likely laid out, the end of the upstairs hall with that impressive window was likely the only usable space that didn’t sacrifice a bedroom. One is torn between how glorious it is to have such a window in a bathroom and how nice it must also have been before, when that window let all that light into the hall and stairwell. If the floor plan permitted, I would exactly duplicate that window as a set of peaked french doors.

      I agree with your guess about the location; however I would have to expose that window. I’d probably change one of the bedrooms into 2 full baths. Such a beauty!

      While I, since I live in Florida, was thinking, “Somewhere cooler to go to escape the seemingly ever escalating heat.”

    I am transfixed by that pink bathroom with the stained-glass tulips. So beautiful!

    I wanted to say, I love the bright yellow kitchen! But it would be a cold home as it seems all the radiators are missing.

    Wait, are those mullioned storm windows? In the eighth interior photo (second picture of the yellow kitchen), one of the windows is partially open revealing another window with mullions on the outside. I’ve never noticed a house with that before. Is it common?

    A lovely house with tons of potential.

      Huh, just looked back & you’re right. I have never seen that before, either.

    I’ve visited in Liverpool, NS and would live there in a heartbeat. Mercy, what a beautiful house. Too bad I’m way into my sunset years.

    I enjoyed so much reminiscing of our trip to Liverpool and ‘driving’ the Google Map streets. We had a delicious lunch at the Inn across the bridge on the left going north. Loved the city and loved going to all the villages along the coast from Halifax down.

    Why oh why would you put a bathroom in so that window is no longer the focus of the upstairs hallway? With a little work this will be a show house. Sooooo charming.
