description

188 Victoria Street, Amherst (MLS® 202000486): 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. Now a single family home, sitting on 0.74 acres, the current family has renovated with the hopes of a potential B & B. 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. Old world charm from stained glass windows, hardwood floors with inlay, original hat boxes, amazing wood wainscoting & trim work to the grand staircase stealing the show. 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. Heading toward the back of the home you will find the renovated kitchen/pantry/laundry room. An office and full bathroom finish off the main floor.The beautiful woodwork continues upstairs where you will find 4 guest bedrooms, 2 with ensuites (one partially finished), master bedroom with fireplace, turret and large ensuite, started but not finished, and a full guest bathroom. The 3rd floor is a 2 bedroom apartment that's under construction.
