Description

36 Rupert Street, Amherst, NS (MLS® 202113795): Stately Victorian home on a tree lined beautiful area of Amherst. Situated on a half acre lot, lovingly landscaped with its own "mini forest" at the back. A ten minute walk to schools, YMCA and downtown including gracious old churches. Built in 1890 with many upgrades such as windows, insulated walls and basement, energy efficient hot water oil fired furnace with programmable thermostats throughout. The second floor has four bedrooms with a southeast facing one perfect for an office. A beautiful whirlpool tub, located in a room next to the upstairs bathroom, features a fabulous view of the backyard. A convenient upstairs laundry room enjoys access to a balcony with a long clothesline. The gracious main oak stairway once extended to the third floor. It still provides an easy walkup to a spacious attic, which could easily be finished to create the perfect private area on the third floor. The main floor has a bright eat-in kitchen facing the morning sun, which affords a full view of the backyard. the beautiful dining room with its beamed ceiling and sconces provide a site for elegant dining. A comfortable den with propane fireplace enjoys sun all day but lights up in the afternoon sun. In addition the large double living room radiates in the afternoon and features a beautiful tiled fireplace at one end. The house has been insulated from top to bottom. As a result oil costs are roughly $3,000 per year: fantastic for a home this size. The exterior features a new tile-styled architectural metal roof, installed in 2019, which provides a classic look to this old home. An inviting spacious deck overlooks the manicured backyard with easy flow with both the house and the driveway. There is even a treehouse for the children under the canopy at the rear of the property. The purchase of some furnishings is negotiable. Don't be fooled by Maps Street View; two large trees recently removed from the lawn have opened up the house to the afternoon and evening sun.
