This Canning estate property has been a wonderful family home and workplace for years, and the zoning (C-2) allows you to really stretch your imagination in the flexible use of different spaces.
The insulated masonry construction ensures an energy-efficient home that will be here for countless generations. The open-concept main floor provides a welcoming living and entertaining space; the dining area’s garden doors open onto a wrap-around deck surrounded by huge lilacs and a variety of mature trees. The distinctive longleaf yellow pine floors were reclaimed from a 200-year-old Boston warehouse. The open staircase, double-sided fireplace, wood ceiling beams, 18 ft. central ceiling with huge skylight and surrounding gallery combine to give this home a timeless, warm, rich ambience.

The main floor office suite (office/waiting room/half bathroom) has solid wood floors, separate exterior entrance and wheelchair access (would also work as an in-law suite).

The beautiful studio with high ceiling, skylights, snug loft, sink, and garden door could also be used as a family room or additional business space.

Barn and pool: The 200 year-old barn is in remarkably good condition, with a horse stall, room for parking vehicles, and second floor storage. A part of the barn has been transformed into a cedar sauna and change rooms (with shower), which are adjacent to a south-facing extension that houses an in-ground swimming pool. The pool is heated year-round from the house through a heat exchanger (no seasonal shut down is required), while passive solar heat keeps potted and tropical plants happy in the pool room during the Nova Scotian winter. The pool room opens onto a delightful European-style patio, draped with wisteria, peach trees and grape vines.
