A summer paradise! This house for sale in Nova Scotia is so close to downtown Halifax and is right on the water and yet — it also has a pool in the backyard. Now, that's pretty nice!
In Bedford, Nova Scotia, a community near downtown Halifax, this house is on the market for $1,790,000.
There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms in this 3,936-square-foot house.
It was built all the way back in 1905 by Sir Frederick Fraser. He was a journalist and philanthropist who established the Halifax School for the Blind.
He also made sure that blind people in Nova Scotia got a free education.
While the house has an old-timey feel, it's pretty modernized.
Off the back of the home, there's a porch that goes down to a luscious backyard with lots of greenery.
Beyond that is a stone path that leads to a heated inground swimming pool because sometimes you need a pool even when you're right along the water.
There is also space on the side to sunbathe and look out at the waters of the Bedford Basin.
Along the edge of the property is a fence with glass panels so that the view of the water is unobstructed.
The property has 100 feet of frontage on the basin and the water goes 200 feet deep which is good for anyone who boats.
The house has been renovated and expanded throughout the years.
Inside, there is still that air of grandeur that the home had when it was originally built thanks to multiple woodburning fireplaces, beamed ceilings and large windows.
There's a den, living room, kitchen and a large dining room on the first floor with hardwood floors throughout.
There is also an office space with wall to wall windows that let in lots of light.
Plus, there's a wine cellar in the home as well.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has south-facing bay windows that offer amazing views of the water.
