New property listed in 404-Kings County, Annapolis Valley

I have listed a new property at 211 Old Post Road in Grand Pré.
Welcome to 211 Old Post Road. This beautifully restored elegant home lies within the boundaries of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Grand Pré. The Rayski Guest House is named in honour of the previous owner Krystyna Rayski-Kietlicz and comes with a transferable development agreement with the County of Kings. Details are listed under the documents tab! From the moment you step inside, you will be in awe with the quality and craftsmanship this house offers. The current owners were awarded by the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia for their complete restoration of this circa 1880 home. A full list of upgrades is available. Modern updates have been added without detracting from the heritage character. The two-storey shingled home has a symmetrical three-bay façade with central entrance, mansard roof with dormers and an open verandah offering amazing curb appeal! The light filled entryway leads to a grand central hallway with access to the spacious eat-in kitchen. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining friends and family. Big doors provide access to the private back deck, the glass stained door leads to the side entry / mudroom area with separate powder room and main level laundry facilities. A formal living room and second living room complete the main floor. The second floor consists of a spacious landing, an elegant primary suite with a 4pc bathroom, 2 additional bedrooms and a 2nd full bathroom. This home would be a perfect family home or can be continued as a guesthouse. For those that want to run it as a tourist accommodation: The Rayski house has been awarded with 4,5* from Canada Select.
