You Could Live Here! 43 Jubilee Road, Bridgewater Nova Scotia

What a great price for such a central location! I love this home with fruit trees and a vegetable garden on the property and walking distance to Shipyards Landing, the outdoor pool, schools, etc. It has some beautiful details including the hemlock floors throughout.

This home is efficiently and effectively heated. No oil, gas or wood required here. It has two 12,000 BTU heat pumps installed about two years ago and a 24,000 BTU heat pump installed in the fall of 2016. Since installing the heat pumps the cost of heating this home has dropped significantly, with the bonus of air conditioning for those hot summer days. Lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with den. This is an old world charmer with beautiful craftsmanship and modern touches. Double boarded hemlock floors throughout. Main floor laundry, full bath, den, updated kitchen, living room and dining room. 3 bedrooms up with a second full bathroom, oak storage cabinets, lots of storage and a bright, cozy reading nook on the landing. Space available on the second floor could be used as a future laundry room. Great landscaped yard including fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Located within walking distance to the Desbrisay Museum, shops, schools, churches, sports fields, walking trail, pool, duck pond, Shipyards Landing and the LaHave River. Sellers adjacent lot is available if buyers would like to make an offer.
