As of the Summer of 2018, at a cost of over $20,000., the owners have recently installed and rebuilt:
A completely new oil furnace which interlinks to the wood furnace that was installed a few years ago.
A completely new and re-painted front verandah in the historic style of the house.
A repaired, re-parged and repointed rear brick chimney.
This 150 year old, 2.5 story home is located in Habitant just 2 km from Canning. Kingsport Beach is just a few kms further down the road and the University Town of Wolfville is within 12 minutes.
The house sits on the high side of the road and is surrounded by spectacular gardens and mature trees. The main floor includes a large mudroom, large kitchen, diningroom, livingroom, study, bath and foyer. The original staircase leads to the second floor. Up here you’ll find another full bathroom and 4 comfortable bedrooms. A narrow staircase leads to the third floor. This is unfinished space but has potential for more rooms, if required, or studio space.
The ceilings are high and most of the floors are original softwood. The house has very good systems including a drilled well, septic and recent wood/oil furnace.
For anyone looking for good outbuildings, you’ll appreciate the 1.5 story garage-workshop and the large garden shed. You’ll love the oversized three-bay garage positioned out behind the house. It’s a big solid building with concrete floor, 3 insulated roll-up doors, insulated and drywall interior, a furnace and storerooms.
The entire roof of the house including the large covered verandah was completely re-shingled in January 2016 with a top quality architectural shingle.
The property includes 1.4 acres with a nice open field at the rear, ideal for gardening and incredible views across the Habitant River and Minas Basin. From here you can see for miles.
