173 & 175 St Margarets Bay Road, Halifax, NS (MLS® 202212999): A truly unique opportunity in the heart of Halifax is here! This historic home is sitting on a 32,000+ square foot lot that provides views down the Northwest Arm, which can be further improved with some tree trimming or redevelopment. “Craigmore” is an elegant property full of incredible mature gardens with stone walls and walkways that litter the grounds with prestige. Currently being utilized as a legal duplex with over/under flats, this two-storey house showcases Arts & Crafts architecture throughout the interior and exterior. The property has access and street frontage on both St. Margaret’s Bay Road as well as Finch Lane, which provides more options for development and convenience with a 2-car parking pad currently available on Finch Lane. The main level is the best example of this construction and design time period. With Quarter-Sawn Red Oak everywhere you look, this distinct type of craftsmanship is not only translated to the naked eye but is evident in the construction and framing of the home upon closer inspection. The attention to natural light and creating a connection with the outdoors was an obvious and successful goal achieved by the original builder. The main floor unit hosts a kitchen, dining room, sunroom, living room with wood fireplace, primary bedroom with fireplace and views of the back garden, and newly renovated full bath. This unit is inclusive of the finished basement also with a renovated full bath, a bedroom along with a family room, workspace, and laundry/storage space. Second storey flat has 3 bedrooms, two full baths, and a kitchen/dining space. The property includes a detached two car garage, a very impressive and top of the line greenhouse, as well as two other small storage outbuildings. This opportunity will appeal to investors and families alike. Redevelop some now or down the road, maybe convert back to an impressive estate home. There are so many exciting options for the next owner of Craigmore; will it be you?!
