Magnificent is just one of the words to describe this circa 1867 home. Sitting on a ¾ acre lot in a lovely area of Pictou, the grounds are a place to start. A professional landscaping plan was incorporated in the 90’s and is now mature, bring your Zen to the gardens, flowers, shrubs, and many varieties of mature trees. A coach house sits at the second entrance to the property on Cottage Street, ideal for storage of your vehicle, toys and/or a workshop, this building has a loft which would be perfect for a studio or play room. Now the house, what can we say other than stunning! The modern kitchen was remodeled in 2012 with custom cabinets, granite counter tops, in floor heat, ceramic and porcelain floor, and Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances. There are patio doors to the back verandah. Original hardwood floors grace the entire home, with high quality carpet in two of the bedrooms, and newer hardwood floor in the guest suite. There are six wood burning and ‘working’ fireplaces, four on the main floor and two on the second floor, one in the master bedroom and one in a spare bedroom. A formal dining room, living room, library and den round out the main floor, with a ½ bath and laundry room. The second floor has a wonderful skylight over the staircase, a large foyer, four bedrooms and a bathroom with in-floor heat, and beautiful water jet tub, that will draw you in! In addition there is a private suite with ensuite and back stairs to the main floor, making a total of five bedrooms on the second level. An automatic generator makes for seamless power in an outage and roof cables prevent winter ice damming. This home is a must see! There aren’t enough words to fully describe it!

    I love this house! Are there no spectacular medium to small sized homes? This is truly scrumptious. As a native Southern Californian, this sentence does give me pause: “An automatic generator makes for seamless power in an outage and roof cables prevent winter ice damming.”

    Beautiful! I love everything about this house. Just perfect…the little stained glass skylight above the stairs is so fun and colorful!

    Even the toniest spa ain’t got nothin’ on that serene green bath!

    But as nice as this house is, I’d be glad to live in that charming garage.

    How does one become a Canadian citizen ??

    It is not easy to become Canaduan citizen…if you can pay cash for house and prove you can self support…possibly…otherwise you must prove the job you can provide is one that cannot be done by a Canadian citizen….

    Between the skylight, the green bathroom, and the kitchen, I’m in love.

    Beautiful. I would not change a thing. Although I do wish they had not painted the trim. And being Canadian, I could easily move there. Not that that is going to happen. My wife I’m afraid would have other ideas 🙂
