If you love early capes you'll be smitten with this one! Built around 1825 by William Kedy, this fine home would have been quite a showpiece in its day. Immaculately maintained with most of the original architectural elements intact, roughly 2 centuries later it remains one of the finest heritage homes in Mahone Bay. But this is not just a historic relic...not by a long shot! This is a modern home, fully updated and comfortable without compromising the architectural integrity or soul of the home. Beautifully proportioned principle rooms and high ceilings defy the notion that old Capes are dark and cramped...not so here. The light filled interior is a delightful collaboration of authentic period detailing and contemporary comfort. Wide plank flooring, single plank wainscoting, original doors & mouldings, the massive hearth & built-in cupboard in the cozy keeping room, and the curving staircase are some but not all of its surviving features. For modern convenience there's a full bath & laundry plus a small guestroom on the main level. The upstairs features 3 large bedrooms including 2 with ensuite, an upgrade we think even William Kedy would have approved. The house is set slightly back off the street surrounded by perennials on a good sized lot with plenty of room to expand the gardens or perhaps build a garage.Centrally located, you're a stone's throw from the waterfront & amenities of Mahone Bay. Arguably one of the most recognized homes in a town blessed with a rich built heritage...if you're like most, you've probably admired this handsome homestead for years as you pass by on Main Street. Don't stop at 'Smitten'...Now's your chance to be next in the line of succession of proud stewards of this timeless Mahone Bay residence (id:32727)
