Craftsman Style home in a country-like setting on 2 acres of land with over 240 feet of direct waterfront on Back Harbour in the heart of Lockeport. This five bedroom home has been owned by one family since it was built in 1926 and retains ALL of the original hardwood, built-in cabinetry and fixtures. The quality of craftsmanship in this home is visible in the Arts and Craft mantle around the fireplace in the main living room, complimented by the simple form of the built-in china cabinet nestled in an arched nook in the dining room that also features the original plate rail and a handsome set of french doors. Large tall windows throughout add to the casual elegance of the home, filling the rooms with an abundance of natural light and offering views of the garden and waterfront. There are three spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom on the main floor, making this an ideal home for anyone seeking the convenience of main floor living, while the two additional bedrooms, family room and 1/2 bath on the second floor offer plenty of space and privacy for visiting family and guests. The two storey barn toward the waterfront offers limitless possibilities for creating fun outdoor space and already features a covered outdoor shuffleboard court for friendly competition. Beyond the enclosed sun porch on the front of the house and the boundaries of the property, you’ll find the historic fishing community of Lockeport to be warm and welcoming with an engaging calendar of seasonal festivals and bazaars. This unique location offers the convenience of local shops, restaurants, schools and library, with the white sands of renowned Crescent Beach and access points to the provincial âRails to Trailsâ system for walking and cycling, all within a few blocks of your front porch. Lockeport is a 25 minute drive from the nearby larger town of Shelburne, 45 minutes to Liverpool and a 2 1/2 hour drive to Halifax and Stanfield International Airport.
