The Jib House

The Jib House is a 100 year old Georgian style home on a hill overlooking Chester's Back Harbour and the islands of Mahone Bay. Facing south, this well maintained seven bedroom family home has high ceilings and sunny rooms throughout, with fine original woodwork, (chair rails, paneling and wainscoting) crown moldings, five fireplaces, hardwood flooring and traditional painted pine floors (upstairs). Sheltered from the winds, there are extensive gardens, terraced lawns and a tennis court. The former boathouse has been renovated and is now a fully equipped guesthouse. The south to west edge of the property has 400' (+/-) of shoreline with a pile driven wharf with 2 ells and a large water lot. Window treatments are included and many furnishings are available for sale. Contact listing brokerage for details.
