Technology Windsor, N.S. Mansion Is Selling For Less Than Some Big-City Condos
Dog owner warns of pit bulls in Windsor's east end after attack
East Windsor resident Mary Dibbley is afraid to walk her Labrador Retriever, Stella, after she and Stella were threatened and attacked by at least two loose pit bulls during a walk around Rose-Ville Garden Drive.“I’m not comfortable walking my dog in my own neighbourhood,” said Mary Dibbley, 67, a resident of Rose-Ville Garden Drive.
Once in a while there comes along a piece of real estate that seems to good to be true.
Today, that property comes from Nova Scotia, where a stunning eight-bedroom Victorian house, complete with a pool, two dishwashers, and a wine cellar has been listed for the same price as some tiny, one-bedroom condos in Canada's larger cities.
Located in the town of Windsor, the gateway to the scenic Annapolis Valley, the 5,100 sq.-ft. home is attracting a huge amount of attention from potential buyers as far away as Dubai, realtor Johnathon Benedict told HuffPost Canada.
Police release video, seek man who punched store clerk
Windsor police have released a video they hope will help them find a suspect invovled in an assault.Police say it happened Wednesday at a store on Tecumseh Road East near McDougall Avenue.
"This is truly an amazing property," Benedict said in a phone interview, adding it's his second go at selling the 120-year-old home — named Lawson House — after a significant price reduction.
Benedict listed the home in 2017 at a half-million dollar price point.
But it failed to generate much interest, and never sold, despite recent renovations and boasting a self-contained in-law suite with a full kitchen.

Benedict convinced the owner that shaving $100,000 off the asking price would drum up potential buyers — and he wasn't wrong.
"The response has been great," he said, adding that aabout the property has really helped get the word out.
That post has been shared widely since it was posted Tuesday, with many commenters skeptical about the $395,000 asking price.
Windsor pilot in fatal Tennessee crash wrote stalker-like letters to Taylor Swift
Internal records from the National Transportation Safety Board show the drunk Canadian pilot who died in 2013 while landing a plane had written multiple letters to Taylor Swift that were stalker-like. Internal records kept at the National Transportation Safety Board show 45-year-old Michael Callan had a 2012 mental health evaluation in which the evaluator said Callan's letters to Swift "have the flavour of stalking.
"This...not even in NS!" wrote Maruska Claygal. "The realtor must've forgotten to place an extra digit in front of the $395,000 price tag."
It's a reaction we've seen before. In 2017, anotherwhen it was listed for just under $435,000.
Benedict says the property offers a little something for everyone — original hardwood floors run though most of the home, there's a basketball court, and custom cabinetry gives ample storage.
"I think, however, that my favourite part of the house is the entryway. It has so much beautiful woodwork and gorgeous wood floors."
And while those familiar with Windsor might be wary of the small town's sleepy reputation, Benedict (who has called Windsor home his entire life) said he's noticed some revitalization in the area lately.
