Location, location, location. This 1880’s Chestnut Street house has been in the same family for 44 years and has had many upgrades over that time and yet, preserved the original 9’ ceilings, wide period trim and deep baseboards. Two major additions have made this a 5-bedroom home, including 2 and 1/2 baths. One has an air-jet tub and is ensuite to the Master Bedroom; the 1/2 bath is ensuite to a second bedroom. Three skylights are strategically located so as to flood those living areas with natural sunlight. The galley kitchen and main floor laundry add to the efficiency of the work areas. The formal living room is accented by a functional wood-burning mantled fireplace. Moving further in you’ll find the dining room and lovely big bright main floor family room with French doors, leading to a beautiful relaxing patio and deck overlooking the fully fenced, mixed perennial garden, all of which make this a lovely oasis-like setting. The garden includes a wood shed for storage of firewood and an “in-style” garden shed. Recently painted outside, hardwood and pine floors in most rooms, a Vermont Castings wood stove (Intrepid II) in the rec room (in good working order) add to its comfort and warmth. Some of the upgrades include a composite oil tank, newer furnace and a 100 Amp breaker panel and upgraded wiring. Located close to English/French Immersion schools: Le Marchant/St Thomas Elementary, Central Junior High for English, Gorsebrook Junior High for French Immersion and Citadel High for both. It is an easy distance to hospitals, Dalhousie University, King’s University and St. Mary’s University. Convenient walk to shopping, transportation, churches and a brief drive to downtown Halifax. Put this one on your viewing list!
