homestead near Paradise, Nova Scotia, demolished
The vernacular style of this house probably dated it to the mid 1800’s, with the Mansard addition on the left side of the homestead likely built around 1900.
The main doorway is typical of Greek Revival influence, while the 1/4 inset chimney also indicates 1830-1860 (?) Ginger-bread on the gable eave is possibly added later under the Gothic influence.
This house was amazing, but it was destroyed about 10 years ago after being on the real estate market for a couple of years. Seeing a lot more of this type of disappearance in the Valley.
