Living in Lunenburg, the most iconic town in the Atlantic Canada is a privilege. Living in the Ashlea House in Lunenburg its an experience on its own. This magnificent 2.5 story Victorian jewel was built in 1886 and has undergone careful and loving restoration as well as being updated into the 21st Century. Built in late Victorian style, with Italianate and Gothic elements, Ashlea House stands tall showing off its intricate façade of arched windows, projecting bays, ornate gingerbread gables and stained glass all topped off with the famed widow's walk, offering 360-degree views of both Lunenburg and the harbour that has made it famous. An ornate gazebo matching the style of the house was added in front of the house in 2004. Upon entering though the beautiful stained-glass door, ones breath is taken by the original beautifully curved staircase leading to the second floor. Two beautifully decorated parlours with 11-ft ceilings with original medallions, built-in bookshelves, original fireplaces and a pump organ that is older than the house itself are located on the main floor as well. Also, here, a formal Dining Room with a magnificent 9-leaf dining table that can easily sit 16 or more people for a scrumptious meal. At the back, a very large kitchen fitted with a new 6-burner commercial Monogram dual range (2020), a propane stove and access to a large insulated full-sized basement with concrete floors. A large storage area completes the back of the house that could easily be converted into an extra bedroom or studio. The house offers 7 large luxurious bedrooms and 6 bathrooms located on the second and third floor, a private office and a guest lounge with access to an outdoor sitting area. The Ashlea House is currently operated as a high-end, very successful Bed & Breakfast since the year 2000 and it is being sold fully furnished and with everything needed. A list of chattels and income statements are available upon request to qualified buyers. (id:38326)
