So unique and so historic! This house for sale in Nova Scotia was built back in the 1700s for a free black woman and it's both a house and a full-on restaurant now. If you bought it and kept it as a restaurant you'd truly be working from home all the time.

The Hatfield House in Tusket, Nova Scotia is on the market for $648,000.

It's a 1,955 square foot home and restaurant on 4.86 acres of land. There are two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

There's a New England style to the property and it's undergone a lot of renovations in last few years including when part of the home was turned into a restaurant in the spring of 2013.

On the first floor, there are two large spaces that are being used as seating areas for the restaurant's diners. One even has a fireplace which is just so cozy.

In both seating areas, there is still the original wood and marble flooring.

They would be considered living and dining rooms if they were being used for residential purposes.

There's a reception area to greet people and a restaurant-style kitchen.

Outside there's a two-level screen in porch used for dining during the summer that's so beautiful.

Upstairs is a private residential area.

There's a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, an office, two bedrooms and a full bathroom.

If you bought this house and decided to ditch the restaurant aspect, there would be so much more living space on both floors.

On the property, there is also a guest house with a steeply pointed roof and electric blue doors.

This historic home was built in 1793 for Abigail Price, a free black woman who appeared in The Book of Negroes which was a registry of three thousand black people who were allowed ship passage from New York to Nova Scotia in 1783.

She also held the title to her land.

More information about her life and what happened after her home was sold isn't known. 

Also, her life predates photography so there are no images of her but her house and her legacy lives on.
