Located on the main road in the centre of the Village of New Ross, this century home offers high visibility, many recent upgrades and lots of charm. New Ross is a vibrant community situated half-way between the South Shore and the Annapolis Valley. Within 35 minutes or so, you can be in Kentville, Mahone Bay, New Minas or Chester. Surrounded by rivers and lakes, it's a perfect location for those who enjoy nature.

There's a fully enclosed 23 foot long porch across the front of the home. Inside, the main foyer is spacious with a 2 piece bath, closet and beautiful staircase. To the left is the livingroom. Double sliding doors connect this to the diningroom. The kitchen is in behind the foyer and behind this is a nice size back porch (mudroom) with laundry.

Upstairs on the second floor are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with claw-foot tub. The staircase continues to the third floor. Up here is one large finished room, 25.4 x 11.2 with wood floor and vaulted ceiling to the peak. There's built-in storage space along one side. This top floor is ideal for a 4th bedroom, exercise room, home theatre or studio space.

The house sits on a very good stone foundation with a door to the outside. In recent years the home has had many upgrades including new electrical wiring throughout, circuit breaker panel, all new windows, new siding and septic upgrade. Other systems include a high efficiency Gemini Kerr warm air furnace (serviced in November 2018), water softener and drilled well. The interior has many original features including wide moldings, mostly wood floors, original trims and stain glass window. The property includes a half acre with private rear yard and triple wide paved driveway. There is an older barn on the property that is not suitable for renovation.

This is a very comfortable century home. The village offers many services including farmer’s market, fire department, 2 cafes, school, hardware store, Credit Union, grocery store, post office, gas station, gallery and “New Ross Farm” with Ross Farm Museum.
