2506 Barrington Street, Halifax (MLS® 202023092): Dripping with history this charming home known as the The Blackador Cottage had once been owned by Victor Hugos daughter after she followed (& stalked) her love interest, a sailor from England. This adorable, quaint home with a warm inviting cottage feel has since been moved from its location on North Street to its current location on Barrington. At this time (1998) the home (or cottage) was placed on a new foam filled foundation, connected to city services. The new owners proceeded to have pluming, wiring, windows & insulation completed while maintain, repairing and restoring the original charm & nostalgic beauty and cottage vibe. There is also a secondary suite perfectly set up for a loved one with a disability as there is a stairlift & walk in tub/shower. The detached single, wired garage could be a great place for treasures/workbench or perhaps you refer to convert this to a backyard suite for help with the mortgage. The OVERSIZED city lot with 67.7 street frontage is somewhat of an oasis with its multiple mature back gardens, trees & gazebo, multiple decks. Or perhaps you prefer to watch the sunrise with your favorite beverage on the front deck which overlooks the harbor & bridge. Near all amenities & 10mins walk to downtown and close to hospital. Solar panels on the roof heat the water for main house. Basement storage could be 2nd bedroom.
