About Randy Valpy

Patti Murphy and her husband Randy Valpy purchased the house from the previous owner, Christopher McCormack in July 2016, after renting it the previous two summers and falling in love with the house. Patti was born and raised in the beautiful town of Wolfville and since introducing Wolfville to her husband in 2010, he too has fallen in love with the town and surrounding area. Patti and Randy live in Burlington ON today, but spend as much time in Wolfville as possible.

Randy Valpy purchased this house in 2016

Why Randy Valpy chose Bay of Fundy

Wolfville House was originally built by the McCormack family in 1949 and remained in the family until it was sold to the current owners, Patti Murphy and Randy Valpy, in 2016.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on a quiet street in a residential area. It offers spacious, elegant living on a single level. It has a lovely view of Cape Blomidon and the Minas Basin.

With its elegant interior and mirrors, It's a beautiful house for a bride to dress and be photographed on her wedding day.

The property is close to Acadia University and the shopping and restaurants of downtown Wolfville.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and we are so glad to hear that you had a great time. My wife Patti and I fell in love with the house the first time we rented it four years ago and we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase the house last year and jumped at the opportunity. Thank you for your rental business and I hope that we can welcome you back again sometime in the future. All the best, Patti and Randy
