430 Main Street Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia B0J 2E0

4 Bedroom 2 Bathroom
Waterfront On River Landscaped


This treasure has come to market for the first time since it was built in the 1880s. Held in the Ernst Family, founding members of Mahone Bay, the history runs rich and deep. From the street, one cannot help but notice the fine ornate craftsmanship and the beautiful curb appeal that only hints at the treasures inside. The covered front porch greets guests at the front door, opening up to a gracious hallway. To the left, the pocket doors slide gracefully, opening to the living with its beautiful bay window then onto the dining room with impressive built-in cabinetry. To the left, you will find the front parlour where the piano was played, and tea was served. The original floor plan remains with touches of vintage updating - such as the den with a working fireplace and cosy wooden shelving. The big country kitchen is bright and clean and functions just as well as on the day it was installed. The old pantry still has the cast iron sink and works wonderfully as a laundry room. To the back of the house you will find the original kitchen stairs and a very handy 3 piece bathroom. You will also discover the original Ernst strongbox, beautifully hand-painted, reminding us of the family's success. Upstairs you will find the four bedrooms and a very spacious and a very pink full bathroom. The magic of this property has only begun. From the back door the sound of the Ernst Brook and the beautiful historic barn pulls you over the bridge to an incredible open field - it is truly magnificent and easy to forget you are in the heart of Mahone Bay. The field is private and is boarded by mature trees. Keeping to the left, you will find the old woods road, which leads to Kinburn Street - this will be the second access to the property. Without a doubt this is one of the most remarkable properties in Mahone Bay. Loved and cared for by the family for four generations. With significant consideration, it is now time for new stories to be told and new memories to be made. (id:48164)
