6 First Avenue


Your 1st stop should be First Avenue in Old Bedford: #6: The "Mackenzie house". This spectacular large Victorian is set back from the street. Sitting on a lot totalling 23,819 sq feet, the house was built by Albert Shaffelburg for William MacKenzie (the Station Master in Bedford from 1871-1930). They simply don't make homes like this anymore. On the main floor: a formal living room with a working wood fireplace, family den w an electric fireplace insert, & bright sunroom. An adorable powder room + large dining room that can sit 13(+). The Hen-House designed kitchen makes you feel like you're in Nice France, with Viking appliances, a 6 burner gas range and large French Doors that open up into the garden. A laundry area/mud room w built in storage closets & walkout to the yard. Last but not least, an "outdoor living room" overlooking the Basin, perfect for a morning cup or nightcap. Upstairs, there are 4 bdrms, an updated 5 pc bathroom and walk in closet. The owners updated the heating system in 2015 (AC+heat), the gardens are manicured with something always in bloom. The perfect spot for entertaining, w views of the Basin, you can watch the fireworks or the ships rolling in from the comfort of your own home.


This popular community is home to many mature and new developments, shopping, walking trails, waterfront amenities of the Bedford Basin, recreational facilities, business parks, and schools. You’ll have easy access to the highways and a short drive to the Stanfield International airport, Burnside Park, Dartmouth Crossing, and Bayer’s Lake.
