5142 Highway 332, Lahave, NS, B4V 3L9
Undoubtedly the most iconic structure on the LaHave River, St. Mark's is now available for the next renaissance. Erected in 1901 by a group of craftsmen from the Lutheran denomination, it has become an artist's muse and focal point for the community. In 2012 it received the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia award. Standing beneath St. Mark's, the spired bell tower pierces the sky. It is an architectural marvel and a work of art. This latest incarnation is a completely restored structure. The soaring walls have been completely redone, the floors all refinished, installation of a gleaming new roof and upgrades of electrical, plumbing and septic systems. Updated propane forced air furnace and electric heat pump heating systems are also in place. The Griffin Heritage publication details the extensive restoration by Cranberry Glass of seventeen stained glass windows and the main chandelier. With over 3300 square feet on the main level, there is additional development potential on the second floor for residential living. Plus, even more basement storage area is essential for event furniture and utilities. The venue has been carefully laid out with sound buffers to accentuate the acoustic qualities of the space. Tesla and electric car charging stations out front personify the dichotomy of old-world values and new technology. Parking is available around the entire structure, and wheelchair access runs in from the rear, allowing for easy event coordination. The sole option for a premiere boutique event space in Middle LaHave, the rental options are endless; gathering place, wedding venue, concert hall, political rally, gallery, antique fair or farmers market venue. This is a call for all entrepreneurs for the continuation of the St. Mark's legacy. An opportunity that only comes by once a century! Negotiable in the sale to complete the transition are professional kitchen equipment, sound, lighting and event rental furniture. On-site CHLU radio station also an optional purchase.
