The Lady Smith Manor is located in the very heart of the historic village of Dorchester, and is a wonderful example of a Georgian style Manor. The home has undergone some renovation while maintaining its original beauty. The home sits on a beautiful lot with circular driveway, and mature timber (some over 200 years old). Through the front door is the original solid walnut staircase that leads to the upper floor. Pocket doors on either side lead to the family room and dining rooms. Also on the main floor is a large entertaining room (which has been used for events and conferences). Formal living and dining rooms are flooded with light and feature ornamental egg and dart mouldings. Kitchen is large and has lots of solid wood cabinetry and large island. There is a double stainless steel sinks, a dishwasher, a two door refrigerators and a electric range which could be upgraded. The rooms at the rear of the house, house the a large office space, coat closet and privacy entrance. A half bath is off the dining area and at the rear of the house are two additional rest rooms which could be furbished, located downstairs. Access to the full basement is from three directions. Hook ups are available for a washer and dryer and the rear entry has hooks for outdoor clothing. The basement, with its thick stone granite wall could be insulated with spray foam to be more energy efficient. The second floor has seven guest bedrooms, closets and a full Victorian bath, a laundry room and shower.

    This incredible beauty is $30k cheaper and what looks like 20 times bigger than my condo. I’m definitely in the wrong part of Canada. Cozying up on that porch with a warm blanket looks like heaven right about now.

    The downstairs living space areas are huge along with the kitchen. I suppose a large family must have lived in this house. Was the white addition an add on and what was the purpose?

    Bathroom with two sinks and what appears to be two toilet stalls, seems to suggest this house was some kind of commercial structure or school at one time. Everything is so BIG! Maybe for servants?

    I would love this house, but having an apartment complex on the front lawn would be a deal breaker for me.

    The description says the house has been used for events and conferences. It’s too bad they didn’t include a floor plan with the scale and layout of the rooms to better understand how the space might be used.

      Hello
      The home was a private residence initially and is 10,000 square feet 2.5 stories high. The older portion with antiques can still be a family home with bath, shower and 5 bedrooms. The brick portion is conference bedrooms, dorm style BR’s office space, training room, cafe’ concept etc..the attic would make a great studio
