    Two things. I usually leave the Canadian listings until the last part of the day but I have such poor time management I’m moving them to the beginning of the day. Cross your fingers this will fix my laziness in posting homes for our neighbors in the north. 🙂

    Next, OHD does have many Canadian readers so these just aren’t for my U.S. readers. 🙂

    This is absolutely gorgeous and I am familiar with NS I am from Newfoundland and have lived in Anchorage Alaska for 40 years. If I were 20 years younger I would have this house, but it would be too big to maintain unless it comes with a maid.

    I’d probably lose the blue carpeting in the bathroom, but other than that, not much else to do! Beautiful home.

    I enjoy the curve railing and the paneling on the stairway. Those stairs would be a joy to use each day-especially if the treads were without carpet.

      I completely agree with you on the stairs! Every time I saw that curve on the stair landing, I would count myself blessed to live there!

    Im not typically drawn to Queen Annes but this house is really exceptional. I love the stone tower and the long deep entry hall. Ditto for the second floor hall with the stairway centrally located. Double ditto for the lovely dining room proportions and bay window. Overall it’s Really unique and gracious. I’d remove some wallpaper, carpeting and roll back the kitchen and OTT bathtub, but that’s about it.

    Those entry doors with that gorgeous leaded green glass emit a beautiful light to the hall. Not my normal genre of desire, but this house has a lot going for it, including the exceptional staircase. Hard to believe the elaborate newel lamp has survived for so long…..amazing. Must be some nice flooring underneath all that carpet. Great house…!!

    I have no problem with seeing houses from other places besides the US. It’s all eye candy! It doesn’t hurt anyone to see different styles and types of architecture. I enjoy seeing all of them.

    Just like I know I can never live in a 2 story house due to mobility issues, I still love looking at them!

    The use of curves in this house is wonderful.
    I have never seen more curved window glass in one house.
    This type of curved spaces can create really interesting acoustics.

    Love to see the interior of the to the tower and the attic spaces. The sash design throughout the house is nice as well, although I’d want to remove a lot of the window dressings.

    Halifax,

    Gorgeous home, right down to the hardwood inlay in the front hallway. This isn’t far from me, Halifax Nova Scotia.

    I’m getting older and finding that the wide angle photography/distortion makes it hardere for me to truly emjoy such lovely places as this. It’s a trend that I know won’t go away, but it does make it hard to see actual scale.

    Moncton,

    I grew up in Amherst NS, not far from this house. Amherst is famous for its large, old Victorians…especially on the same street as this beautiful home; “Victoria Street”. If you ever visit Nova Scotia by car Amherst is the first town, you can’t miss. I grew up giving directions to tourists in the summer…many of them in town to see the beautiful old homes.
    This house (we call all the mansions by their owner or builders name) I’ll call this The “V” House for privacy’s sake. We couldn’t wait to go to the V house every Halloween with the hopes of catching a glimpse of the inside of the well known mansion. It is one of many in that area that are real works of art. Thanks for posting this, a nice surprise and so much nostalgia!

    Moncton,

    I can’t help but wonder what this home would cost on the West Coast of Canada or around the Toronto area by comparison. Here on the East Coast it’s common for people to retire here from out west stretching their money so much further.
