Front of the house
Often described as one of the most beautiful homes in Yarmouth, this 8500-square foot residence would make a sumptuous Bed and Breakfast.
The master suite stretches the entire width of the house with a 7-piece ensuite bathroom that has a vaulted cedar ceiling with a skylight.
The second bedroom on the upper floor has a 4-piece bath, and the two remaining bedrooms have a half bath each which are joined by a 3-piece tub/shower and bidet room. One of these bedrooms has a balcony overlooking a magnificently landscaped very private backyard.
The main floor has a large kitchen with mahogany stained cherry-wood cabinets, dove-tailed drawers, detailed and created by master cabinet designer Karl DeCoste. There is a Jenn-Aire stove in the island and a wall-oven, microwave and warming drawer all set together on one side. The countertops are Zodiac quartz, and the floor is ceramic tile.
Opening from the kitchen in the Great Room with a fireplace and built in bar which opens on both sides of the fireplace onto a full balcony overlooking the backyard. The formal living room with a majestic fireplace, dining room, large library with solid mahogany shelves and walls, two large solid Honduran mahogany staircases and a half bath complete this level.
The house on ground level opens again on both sides of the fireplace in a second living room to the beautifully landscaped park-like private grounds. Also on this level is a small gym with a rubber floor, hot-tub and ballet bar, a games room area, a large walk-in cedar closet, a second kitchen and a large 3-piece bathroom with enough room for a fairly large sauna.
The floors are all exotic hardwood, and some ceramic (notably in the entrance, kitchen and bathrooms.)
The landscaping and the house itself lends this home to a venue for weddings and photography.
This home comes mostly furnished and with a separate side lot.
It is minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in Atlantic Canada, boasts a temperate climate, is home to a booming lobster fishery where you can still go to the wharf and buy lobsters fresh off the boat.
Yarmouth is a hidden gem of a town. A ferry from Portland, Maine crosses to Yarmouth seven times a week, brining many tourists to this delightful town.
