3746 Highway 1, Annapolis Royal, NS (MLS® 202303235): Nestled regally up a charming tree-lined drive, the elegance and grandeur of this landmark estate has stood for decades as an icon of Annapolis Royal, one of Nova Scotia's most historic towns. American industrialist Edwin Stanton Fickes constructed the manse over the course of 6 years beginning in 1929, insisting on using only local tradesmen in its construction. The current owners recently completed a monumental 7 year, earth-to-rooftop renovation that has restored the compound toward Fickes' original design while updating to modern standards. Its 380 acres of fertile soil, an equestrian's dreamwork of meadow, woodland and vintage apple orchard, stands astride the distinguished 18-hole Fort View Golf Course. The Province of NS has designated the land as suitable for an extensive Riesling grape vineyard. Additionally, the halcyon grounds adjoining the residence feature an intimate kitchen garden and a sheltered stone garden. The regal 20-room, nearly 8,000-square-foot main residence striking details and period craftsmanship including thick stone walls, original slate and oak floors, soapstone window sills and period hardware and trim offer a dynamic welcome to family and guests alike. The home has been completely rewired with LED lighting, and features a commercial propane tank to support its emergency generator. French doors and broad bay windows infuse the property with calming natural sunlight and an embracing warmth even during the coldest months. A warm foyer greets entrants and sets the tone for all the main level common areas, while an elegant staircase leads to the second floor's generous sleeping quarters and a range of multi-purpose rooms. The modernized, gourmet kitchen and butler's pantry make meal preparation a breeze but retain all their original charisma. Annapolis Valley is renowned for its rich soils and vineyard weather, and of course the world-famous Bay of Fundy tides. This historic estate now stands ready for a new owner to extend its legacy.

Directions: South of town of Annapolis Royal, along Highway 1, just past the golf course
