12 Idlewylde Road Armdale, Nova Scotia B3N 1B9

1 Bedroom 2 Bathroom


A cottage in the city? A home in the treetops? This house hasn't been available except for those lucky enough to be guests of the owners for over fifty years. Secreted away on a quiet street overlooking the city, this magical home has all the charm of a seaside cottage tucked on a large garden lot. The main floor boasts a cozy living room with a wood stove through to a dining area off of the kitchen with plenty of room to gather. The large windows allow light to warm the glow of the hewn beams and bring a sense of comfort to the home. Upstairs is an airy retreat with white beadboard and beams that make you feel like you are in the trees where the huge windows give you a view over the city to the Arm. The bedroom overlooks the peaceful garden's privacy and completes this eclectic home. The private garden has decks, a flagstone patio, and a fairy pond that adds to the wonder of this serene home. Walk to Greekfest, Armdale Yacht Club, Chocolate Lake Beach, and Recreation Centre. Play basketball at the end of your street or enjoy the tennis courts around the corner. Shopping and dining are nearby, storage abounds, parking for two cars. Well maintained and cared for, there is a list of improvements available. (id:38326)
