Starting in May 1, 2015, we have welcomed guests to enjoy our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house in the heart of Central Halifax. Our home is seconds from Citadel Hill, and Halifax's Waterfront, and is directly across the street from the Halifax Common and Emera Skating Oval. The house has a large back deck with BBQ, a great place to relax before and after venturing out to enjoy the city and surroundings. The house has three levels. Upstairs features 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The main level is made for entertaining, with an open kitchen and a bright living room. The back sunroom leads to the tranquility of the large deck. Downstairs is made for lounging with a recreation room and bar, to go with another bedroom and a full bathroom. Extra mattresses al;low this house to comfortably sleep 12 people. This house was our family home for 10 years, but it was time to move to a spot with a bit more room for our family!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The Orange House has been our family home for ten years, but it was time to move to something a little larger for our little two girls and two dogs. We have loved living downtown and all there is to do in the area. We have rented our neighboring property The Green House, for 5 years now, and really enjoy welcoming guests to our city and helping ensure they have the best 'local' Halifax experience. John is a local physician who is from Nova Scotia, and Jennifer is an immigrant from the beautiful state of Louisiana.

Why the Owner Chose South End, Halifax, NS, Canada:
This property was redone in 2005, and again expertly renovated in late 2012/early 2013, making it an amazing venue for executives or families in the heart of Halifax. The Orange house sleeps 12 people, has 3.5 bathrooms, and all the space you need to feel right at home when away from home. This house is ideal for groups visiting for vacation, events like weddings, or visiting town on business.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will not find a more central location to enjoy all the best things Halifax has to offer, in the comfort of a beautifully maintained home that blends the character of old Halifax with the finest modern amenities.
