Originally built circa 1850 and completely re-built to modern standard in 2019/2020, this lovely example of classic Nova Scotia architecture is situated in the idyllic hamlet of Bear River. Just finished at the time of listing, the home is now ready for its new owners. The house sits on an elevated, private lot surrounded by mature trees, with a small barn/workshop. There is ample paved parking and a low maintenance yard. From the expansive wrap-around covered veranda (which you can enter from the front or either side of the house), you will enjoy the view over the trees and roof tops of the Bear River Valley. Once inside you will be delighted with the bright and spacious interior, which is completely new, yet full of character: wide mouldings and hardwood floors, exposed beam ceilings upstairs, pocket doors between the front rooms, high quality fixtures and hardware, mullioned windows, refinished solid wood doors, and a traditional layout. Designed to be energy efficient and comfortable, with 3 principal main floor rooms, well designed kitchen, laundry and powder room. All stainless steel (Frigidaire Gallery) kitchen and (Samsung) laundry appliances are brand new. The second floor offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths including a private master suite with dressing room and ensuite with custom tile shower. The carefully considered design and fine craftsmanship that went into this extensive renovation is meant to bring to market something special that is move-in ready and meant to be enjoyed for generations to come. Located within walking distance to the village, where you will find cafes, gift shops and galleries, convenience stores, post office and the Legion. Enjoy picnics at the waterfront park, which has a floating dock for public access boating on the tidal Bear River. This property is also close to local wineries and artists' studios and just 15 minutes to the towns of Digby, Annapolis Royal, and the Fundy YMCA.
