Fairmont House: builty by master ship builder John Zwicker in the mid 1800's. This Gothic Revival with a double bayed, triple gable façade, and simply designed Neoclassical influenced interior, features one of Mahone Bay's most beautiful central halls with an elegant curving staircase leading to a broad, second-floor central hall. Having been a popular B&B for over thirty-five years, this prime location would also serve well as a casually elegant family residence. The large country kitchen with its updated modern appointments is adjacent an elegant dining room which leads to the spacious front foyer across from a gracious living room. The large family room opens to an exceptionally large rear garden. There is a generous size main floor laundry and storage and additional storage in the detached garage which would adapt well to accommodate two cars if needed. The second floor offers five bedrooms, four with ensuite baths, and a large walk-in storage room for linens. This home offers views of the bay, is a short walk to the government wharf, and fronts on a sidewalk for easy access to town amenities just a few minutes walk everything one needs. The level aspect of the property would be ideal for gardening, and the position of the house with its prime commercial location and generous size lot, presents the possibility for future subdivision lending to either residential or commercial development. There would be ample room for greatly extended parking should a new commercial enterprise require additional customer parking - this in a town where off-street parking is difficult to find. This home has 'presence' with its strong historic architecture and prime, visible location in one of Nova Scotia's most beautiful seaside towns.
