Built by Thomas Easson in 1809, this classic Lequille home offers a lesson in architectural subtlety. After two centuries it still boasts most of its original trim details and well crafted Italianate charm. It's a full two story design with two sided covered verandah, graceful curving staircase, wood floors, spacious rooms and a back staircase, too. The main floor offers a generous rear mudroom, large country kitchen with custom built shaker-style cabinets, a diningroom open to the kitchen, family room with woodstove, livingroom and full bath.

On the second floor you'll find three good sized bedrooms in the front and two cozy bedrooms along the back hall with another bathroom and laundry. The ceilings are high and the big original windows let lots of sunlight enter. Overall, it offers about 2,200 square feet of living space. The owner has completed many upgrades and improvements over the past 10 years. The basement has an amazing solid stone foundation, and the owner had the clay floor dug down and poured a new concrete floor. The basement is dry and useable for storage. A new furnace and a new woodstove were installed. The electrical system was upgraded complete with new circuit breaker box. The roof was reshingled in 2009.

The home is fully insulated, heats very well and is cozy even on cold winter days. It's located at the edge of Historic Annapolis Royal and has municipal water and sewer with county taxes and high-speed internet service. If all that isn't exciting enough, the property includes 7 acres of land with open fields and some wooded areas. It's ideal for hobby farming and growing anything from vegetables, berries to flowers. There's even access to the back field off a side road. The property is nicely landscaped with mature trees, shrubs, garden plots and a gentle sloped field. There's a 10 x 10 garden shed and a 10 x 7 chicken coop. Lots of land for kids, dogs and other critters, all within an easy stroll to Annapolis Royal.

Live theatre, golf, recreational services, shops, hiking trails, Keji Park and access for boating are all close by. Perfect location for your home-based business, B&B, gallery/studio, herb business, market garden and antique shop. And, perhaps best of all is the price.
