Quintessential Nova Scotia charm at its true finest in this 1860's home nestled in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lunenburg. Originally built by local shipwright Lewis Rhuland in 1862 as a one-and-a-half storey gable-roofed Gothic Revival, it was altered by Henry Rhuland in the 1890's to a Second Empire style residence. This home has blissful views of Lunenburg Harbour from the front yard, and primary bedroom. The home is steeped with history, charm and curb appeal for added good measure. This open and airy century home has been renovated to modern day standards, while maintaining the unique character first given. The period architecture features a round-hooded dormer, a bell-cast roof, stunning transom windows over the lovingly restored original front door. This 3-bedroom, 2 ½-bath home has been painstakingly restored and features a modern cook’s kitchen; mudroom coming off the newly paved driveway; new laundry room on main level; an added half bath on the main level complete with sliding barn door; all new electrical; new plumbing, vanities for all bathrooms; new crown moldings throughout; glorious wide-plank floors; new floors in bedrooms; and much more. The exterior of the home has been recently repainted, and repairs made the clad boards and a new deck has been built for summer entertaining. This home is situated on a large, newly landscaped property and is in the Bluenose Academy school area, across the street from the Lunenburg Farmers Market and a public boat launch, and a 2 minute walk to the tennis court and a very thriving arts community. This is a must see!
