A classic town of Mahone Bay character home previously used as a commercial space, Spruce Top Rug Hooking. Situated on a huge 80,356 square foot lot, that's almost 2 acres, there is lots of potential here. It's about a 7 minute stroll to the town center and has 330' of road frontage. There is also a large barn that would be perfect for retail or as the ideal workshop. The house appears solid and over all well maintained and with a bit of cash and sweat equity could be brought back to a very comfortable family home. Beautiful wood floors and accents. The center hall plan leads past the 4 similar size gathering rooms and back to a very large kitchen with a laundry room and a 2 piece bathroom. Upstairs offers 4 bedrooms with tons of character and an oversized bathroom plus there is a walkup unfinished attic. This large in town property is rare in Mahone Bay and prime for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit or just someone looking for a home offering space to breath.

    I’ve been in many quilt stores and Americana stores like this and they always seem to work because they offer soft and relaxing atmosphere that makes you want to stay, browse and spend money. But that wouldn’t work without a warm and cozy home to start with. The less than perfect floors that probably give and creak just a little, the little gems of spaces that make such good display or storage for your treasures, retail or personal. This place seems big enough to be comfortable but small enough to me magical. Very little work looks like it needs to be done except to remove the retail and add a dishwasher and larger single bowl sink. Love the kitchen as it is except for that. Small things will make this home absolutely perfect. With I were Canadian? Sometimes. Especially for this sweet little house.

    Yes, why are such beautiful old homes so often in such frigid places? At least that wood stove in the kitchen would help!

      They often appear to be in the places that have been (blissfully) untouched by “progress.” Places where there is little to no economic advantage in buying and then tearing down to build “McMansions.”

      This is a lovely home which manages to feel cozy despite the large square footage. I could envision myself warm and secure while winter storms rage.

      It’s funny, when I look at homes in the South, I say something similar – but replace “frigid” with “hot and humid”. 🙂 It’s all in what you get used to, I guess. (By the way, it snowed here this morning.)

    If I lived here, I could keep an eye on Oak Island!
