Circa 1780, this darling Cape is one of the earliest homes in the village. For years, it was the home and office of a family doctor and has affectionately been known as the Woodroofe House in his honour. The original Dutch oven fireplace, a stunning corner cabinet, 100 + year-old hemlock/painted floors, original doors/trims, and claw foot tubs are just some of the traditional features in this inviting home. With a main floor bedroom/ensuite, and a wonderful sheltered courtyard deck, this is one level living at its best, right in the heart of the village. Three bedrooms with built-ins and a full bath are on the second floor. A surprise family room above the garage, with a full bath, is bright and cheery. The home, with two wells, has welcomed friends and family for years, and has had many improvements, including insulation, windows, Corian counters, stainless steel appliances, refinished floors, cedar roof, interlocking brick driveway, and much more... Steps from the Front Harbour, and around the corner from the Yacht Club, Playhouse, Art Centre, and all the interesting shops and cafes in the seaside village of Chester, this is a wonderful family home with a great floor plan for multiple generations to enjoy. With a new Day Care, our Health Centre, coastal golf club, skating/hockey/curling complex, and more, all less than an hour from Halifax on Nova Scotia's treasured Bluenose Coast.
