490 Francklyn Street, Halifax, NS (MLS® 202129796): Adjacent to Point Pleasant Park and walking distance to the best schools in Nova Scotia, you’ll never want to move again. With over a third of an acre, mature trees and shrubs adorn this property. So much potential with this two hundred and eighty foot long lot. The Limehurst Estate is an Arts and Crafts century home with many original characteristics. The main floor office, living and dining rooms have retained original crown mouldings and brass window hardware. The home showcases grand rooms throughout the 2860 square feet of living area plus an extra 1669 square feet in the basement ready for a transformation upgrade. A large family can live very comfortably in the four bedrooms and bathrooms. Wake up to panoramic views of the terraced gardens and the Northwest Arm from a 343 square foot second floor primary bedroom. A three piece ensuite bathroom and full wall closet is also ready for your design renovation. Recent upgrades include several statement lighting fixtures from 31 Westgate, a massive back deck & propane service for the fireplace, stove and barbecue. A six foot wide deeded access route alongside the southern border of 5960 Inglewood Drive to the arm is also included in the sale. That means you can pick up some water for the lobster boil!
