Built between 1870 and 1875 by pioneer shipbuilder, David Smith, 166 Pelham Street sits on a double lot above Lunenburg’s historic Railway Wharf in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage site. The house commands wide southern views of Lunenburg Harbour with easy walking to the restaurants and shops of the Town. Restored and renovated in 2013, the front vestibule and “bump” were final details completed in 2018. The house won Lunenburg’s coveted Heritage Recognition Award in 2019 for the attention paid to the original character of the building. Careful detailing with a minimalist approach, the design includes a gourmet kitchen with south-facing eating area, custom showers and bath, separate dining area, 2 parlours, 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Other features of this contemporary home include the addition of 2 harbour-facing dormers, restored hardwood floors and porcelain tiling, built-in shelves and drawers and home office, fireplace with insert, 2 imported wood burning stoves, imported light fixtures, ducted air conditioning and tons of natural light. A rear covered veranda overlooks a professionally landscaped garden detailed with a slate patio, tiered rock stairs and flower beds that fill the lower lot looking out to the sea. A unique, beautifully appointed property.
