5981 Bilton Lane, Halifax, NS (MLS® 202114321): 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.
