Property Description

Here we have a traditional Lunenburg “Four Square”, circa 1890.  This simple architectural style is the backbone of character running through much of Lunenburg’s late Victorian building boom.  At the outset it was seen as modernist, an answer to the space-cramped cape-house vernacular design of the colonial period, and a fulfillment of the nuclear-family notions of the artisan middleclass.  In its time this Four Square, situated at the edge of New Town, was the perfect utilitarian family home for carriage-maker James Rafuse.  Those same utilities in this unaltered Four Square will still be self-evident to today’s young family-home seekers.  But that’s not the end of the virtues of this little Four Square, with its tree-lined fenced yard.  With a little imagination these sturdy perpendicular dwellings can be opened up and renovated into amazing contemporary living spaces...airy, bright and post-family, retiree friendly!  Located just a short walk from Lunenburg’s attraction-driven waterfront, 52 Dufferin also has great potential as an income-earning seasonal rental.
