Situated on the Nova Scotia/New Brunswick border, this sandstone residence is one of the last on the East Coast. Originally commissioned as a wedding gift and known as Beau Séjour (Beautiful Home), it has previously been used as a rental property with several units.

With better than Toronto high speed internet, the business potential is endless - B & B, tea room, medical office... Since 2016 the house has been extensively renovated: re-wired with smoke detectors to code, two new, commercial grade furnaces installed and converted to gas, new Wildwood-designed kitchen/pantry/laundry, upgraded waterline, kitchen/bathrooms to PEX piping, majority of hardwood floors professionally restored, plaster restored, ceilings replaced just a few off the list. Attention to detail has been foremost from to code push button switches with mother of pearl buttons to sending original bathtub taps to Oregon for repair.

The main floor offers formal living room with stained glass windows, library with a stunning marble fireplace, built-ins and fantastic woodwork, family room with fireplace, stained glass windows and turret, an impressive formal dining room with an original built-in china cabinet, boxed ceilings and doorway to the screened in porch.
