Located in the Village of Weymouth, this circa 1840 Registered Heritage home will speak to you if you are seeking a very comfortable, very charming, very affordable move-in ready home with a past history and modern updates. The Village itself may be exactly what you are looking for. Weymouth is situated at the mouth of the Sissiboo River, "where the river meets the sea" at St. Mary’s Bay. It's a small, tidy community with an amazing selection of services. There are sidewalks from one end of the Village to the other, a boat slip for your small boat, kayak or canoe, a medical centre, hardware store, pharmacy, bank, grocery store, public transit to neighbouring towns, liquor store, cafe, building supplies, service station . . . even a gym. Access to the shops and services along the French Shore and the larger Town of Digby are within 20 minutes.

The home itself is fantastic! Being a Heritage property there are certain restrictions on what can be done to the exterior facade. Over the years it has been very well maintained and updated. The roof was reshingled in 2018, wiring has been updated and there is a new panel. The oil furnace and tank are also quite new. The home's design has a Greek Revival influence and the ceiling height is quite high throughout. It has a charming front entry porch, a spacious side entry mudroom which incorporates the laundry.

The main level includes a generous sized kitchen, a separate diningroom, a 2 piece bath and two good sized principal rooms, one on either side of the centre foyer. Each of these rooms has an original fireplace. They are not used today but if desired, they could be upgraded with inserts to burn wood or propane. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, stair hall and a full bathroom. Everywhere you look there is an interesting detail - original wainscotting, 6 over 6 windows, unique door hardware, wood floors, special trim details and moldings. It sits on a very solid and dry concrete and stone foundation with concrete floor. Systems include a drilled well, municipal sewer, oil fired, warm air heating, upgraded electrical and plumbing, cable and high speed internet.

The property is just over 1/4 acre in size with a private backyard and garden. There's a small garden shed, a nice rear deck and a detached single car garage. The home is spotless and move-in ready. All appliances are included.
