Yarmouth house description

This beautiful Greek Revival historical home is located on the prestigious Yarmouth Harbor within walking distance of downtown Yarmouth and across the street from Yarmouth Golf and Country Club. Just a few minutes from the Main Ferry Terminal, Mega Yacht Dock or the Yarmouth Airport; and 4 hours southwest of Halifax International Airport, our home is located just where you want to be. Only a short drive away are spectacular beaches and historic towns such as Digby, Annapolis Royal, Shelburne, Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg; Kejimikujik Lake and National Park; galleries, museums and craft shops. This area offers white water rafting, fresh water canoeing, superb golfing and excellent cycling and hiking. For bird lovers, the South Shore is on a major migratory route.

Renovated, updated, and decorated with great style & antiques, this 4-bedroom home offers spectacular views of the harbor and spacious rooms throughout. The house has retained much of its original character with just the right mix of modern touches. Refinished maple hardwood floors, tin ceilings and beautifully crafted wood trim & staircases add to the charm of this home. The main level features a comfortable living room, separate dining room that seats 8 comfortably, a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, and a laundry room with a half bath. Sliding patio doors open onto the spacious deck that is equipped with a gas grill & patio furniture for that perfect afternoon barbeque. Spend the afternoon swinging on the large columned veranda which runs along the front and side of the house or out in the vast lawn viewing birds overhead or aquatic life in the harbour. On the second floor are 3 bedrooms and a 2 full baths, which are tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings. On the third floor is the luxurious master suite featuring a large sitting room with breathtaking views of the harbor, 1 spacious bedroom and a full bath.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: We first visited Nova Scotia in 2001 and fell in love with the area, people and food. The pristine landscapes and panoramic ocean views are magnificent and just the thing we need for a relaxing vacation. Our children have made many friends with the kids their own age and enjoy visiting them every summer. Coming to Yarmouth is one of our most treasured family spots and we hope to continue to do so for many years to come.

          Why the Owner Chose Yarmouth:
          One reason we love Yarmouth is because it's like taking a step back in time to the small southern towns we grew up in during the 60's. The townsfolk are so welcoming that you feel right at home while there. The local seafood is to die for...fresh lobster, clams and scallops are just a few of the varieties available. Another reason we love Nova Scotia is the milder summer temperatures to be enjoyed rather than the hot southern heat and high humidity we are used to experiencing.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          As we walk into our house, we feel just like 'we are home!' It's home'y' atmosphere welcomes us back year after year. Taking walks along the harbour, riding bikes through the town, walking downtown for breakfast, sitting on the upper floor watching the birds & boats & dolphins, having a lobster cookout on the deck, or just reading or napping on the veranda are some of our most favorite things to do while here. It is definitely a place to come for a time-to-unwind from our busy life in the states.
