Property Description

A contemporary farmhouse, entirely constructed with locally milled woods including hardwood and softwood floors and trim (mostly of eastern white pine and red oak); this country home offers a beautiful rural setting, privacy, is nestled on a sun dappled hillside of three acres, and has been owned by only one family. Located just beyond the border of the seaside town of Mahone Bay, this home would allow for an invigorating ten minute walk to all the immediate amenities. It is five minutes walk to the ocean, and is a one hour drive to Halifax or the airport. The house has a commodious covered verandah extending along the front with custom spindles crafted by a master turner. The large front foyer has a living room to the left, formal dining room to the right and great room at the back flanked by eat-in kitchen to the right and office-den to the left featuring a full wall of solid wood built-ins. An extension off the kitchen accommodates a mudroom-laundry-canning room that is used for making fall preserves and at the rear there is a generous four piece family bath well located to wash up after working in the garden. The second floor mezzanine overlooks the family room with well positioned wood burning stove. A built-in window seat in the bay looks over the back of the property with field stone patio area ideal for summer barbecues. There is a 2nd floor bath shared by two guest rooms and a large master with adjoining nursery or sitting room. The basement has high ceilings and with its large exterior entry would adapt well as a workshop. There is a chicken coop toward the foot of the driveway and small barn at the top of the hill. This would be the ideal property for children, with room for all the family pets they could want, and would be adaptable to a small hobby farm. The home has nice views over the country side with a good mix of mature deciduous and conifers. Balsamea House not included in purchase price and will be subdivided from property prior to closing.
