Once known as the Lennox Tavern and Inn, this 18th century roadhouse built in 1791, is the oldest British-Colonial, roadhouse surviving in Canada still under operation. Constructed by Andreas Jung, it was later purchased by John Lennox in 1804. It is the largest original Georgian structure in the UNESCO town of Lunenburg, with in excess of 3,700 square feet of living space on three floors, with potential for an additional 1,000 sq. ft. or more in the basement. The remains of the original basement kitchen houses the only surviving commercial, brick, beehive oven in Lunenburg County. The generous front entry hall features what was once a dry goods store to the left, and large tavern to the right. The former secondary kitchen is at the rear of the tavern behind a wooden-caged bar, and there is a bedroom across the hall from the kitchen at the rear of the house. The second floor features four bedrooms and three baths off a wide hallway. The third floor is a generous space with two storage rooms lending the potential for two additional bedrooms . The basement has the beginnings of a bathroom with the possibility of further finished living space within massive stone walls. The house is situated in a quiet part of the UNESCO district, part of a historic streetscape and is a comfortable stroll to shopping and the ocean. It is located just one block from St. John's Church Square. The restoration is true to the period, like none other and within a context of Provincial Heritage Properties in Nova Scotia, this building is considered of historic significance. It features nine fireplaces structurally intact, original lime plastered walls, original wood floors, wood paneling and trim. There is the potential for 2 additional guest rooms, separate owner's quarters and additional space ideal for any number of commercial or cultural enterprises. (id:49105)
