An Exceptional Location

The Academy is a unique residential project, offering an unparalleled lifestyle in rural Nova Scotia, and now you can call it home.

Constructed in 1939 and classified as a building with exceptional heritage value, the former Annapolis Royal Academy is taking on a new life. Initially built as a Primary to Grade 12 facility, it will soon undergo a complete renovation, becoming the “The Academy”, a rare real estate project of 40 condominiums and common spaces (including a community gymnasium), in the heart of Annapolis Royal. The Academy will integrate period charm with a modern spirit, in a 3.2 acre estate-like setting. This elegant Beaux-Arts structure and its iconic design make it an important part of the charm and character of this 400 year old town, which is famous for its heritage buildings.

The Academy rivals in elegance with local landmarks such as the Queen Anne Inn (Nova Scotia’s most photographed inn), the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens (Canada’s Garden of the Year for 2015), and Fort Anne National Historic Site – the most fought after parcel of land in Canada’s history. In fact, Lower St. George Street is designated as a National Historic District.

The Academy is located on a picturesque, tree-lined lot at 590 St. George Street, in Annapolis Royal, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.
