  • Property Details

    Built for the Hon. William Stairs in 1880, this spacious heritage home marked the beginning of a trend at the end of the 19th century to escape to the country away from city life. Constructed by ship builders this summer home for the "well-to-do" eventually changed hands to become a country inn listed in the Canadian National Railways guide, a short carriage ride from Lunenburg. Linden House today is a private home and has been for many years, sympathetically renovated from "A to Z" into a comfortable modern home for all seasons, retaining a simple and relaxed elegance befitting a family county house. This property is one of the prettiest in the country with sweeping views to the water and the Lunenburg Yacht Club just three minute's walk away, mature trees and gardens, old carriage barn, garden shed, in-ground pool, gazebo, and 1940s guest cottage. The interior retains much of its original character, pine floors and trim, built-ins, high ceilings, grand foyer, classic verandah, and an enlarged country-style modern kitchen. Three minutes walk to sailing lessons, less than ten minutes drive to the cafes and restaurants of either Mahone Bay or Lunenburg, and just over an hour to the city and airport. Truly postcard perfect.
