Empire-style 1864 historic perched on almost 2 acres of rolling lawns and gardens overlooking the picturesque Mersey River. Currently operating as a year-round, turn-key and fully licensed 7-unit B&B, this would make a lovely private family home...with lots of room for extended family plus a separate guest area / in-law suite.
Upon entering the foyer, visitors often comment on the spectacular curved staircase and the legendary skylight that illuminates both the first and second floor hallways of the Inn. Striking ceiling mouldings, hardwood floors, original brick hearth and exposed beams are complimented by beautiful antiques and furnishings that reflect the 19th century era - exquisitely blended with modern 21st century conveniences.
In the main house there are four guest rooms with private, modern en suite baths. Common areas include a main floor parlour, reading library, dining room and second floor lounge. The owners’ residence is currently closed-off from the main house / Inn and consists of the kitchen, dining nook, sitting area with a wood fireplace (original brick), living room with patio doors leading out to a private deck and yard; upstairs finds two bedrooms and a 3-pc. bath with skylight.
There are also three bonus efficiency units contained in a separate building; each fully equipped with fridges, microwaves and toasters; turn-key income for vacations rentals. In addition to the main parcel containing the house & housekeeping units, there is an additional 20,000 sq. ft. undeveloped lot and 12,000 square feet of water frontage, located just across the road; amazing for swimming or access for a canoe or kayak…or simply enjoying the water’s edge of the Mersey River. 1.2 km (1 mile) from the Town of Liverpool. 90 minutes to Halifax and international airport.
