About 5981 Bilton Lane

One of the most elegant homes in the South End, the house was initially built by British craftsmen for Premier Joseph Howe’s brother in 1836 as a grand residence on the NWt Arm-front estate named “Bilton. In 1986 the estate was subdivided and the original mansion was converted into 2 luxury units: one with 2,500 sf on the main and bsmt levels and this 3,400 sf unit on the main, 2nd & 3rd levels. The unit underwent another major renovation 20 years later. It is stunning from the moment you enter with a 2-storey stained glass window & crystal chandeliers. The home is filled with natural light throughout. A grand marble tile floor hallway separates the almost 2,000 sf 2nd level into an entertainment area on the waterside and a large kitchen and dining room space cityside. The kitchen area has a large center island with breakfast bar, granite counter tops, an abundance of cabinetry, and a seating area for casual entertaining. A 450-ft front deck has SW exposure and views of the Arm, while a 300-ft back deck provides a more private space for BBQ'ing. A powder room completes this level. The 3rd level houses a 425 ft master bedroom with a wall of windows overlooking the Yacht Squadron and Northwest Arm. The en-suite includes an 8 ft custom built double vanity, soaker tub and walk-in shower as well as a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry. Two other bedrooms, a 3pc bathroom and a large laundry room complete this level.The highly sought location allows for runners or dog owners to be steps from Pt Pleasant Park as well as within walking distance for students at the Grammar School, Sacred Heart, Armbrae, Dalhousie and SMU. Professionals at the hospitals can walk to work while those downtown can drive to their offices in minutes.Upgrades in the past few years include exterior painting, roof shingling, new eaves troughing throughout, built-in custom bookshelves, and a remote access security system.
