Seaside in Kingsport
22 Breezy Bluff Lane, Kingsport 22 Breezy Bluff Lane, Kingsport

The name says it all, “Breezy Bluff Lane”. Well, not really. Obviously any home that sits on the cliff overlooking saltwater is going to be a little “breezy” from time to time. The folks who are fortunate enough to own this type of property understand that. But seaside homes also capture all the magic of the tides. Salt air. Seabirds. Sand. Sun. Sunset. Sunrises. Storms. Long walks on the beach. Fog. Mist. Swimming. Perhaps the name should be “Paradise Lane”! Or “On Vacation Every Day” Lane.

First of all, it is totally hidden and private. It’s located in South Maitland, just 20 minutes from Truro and about 45 minutes to Halifax. The 23.6 acres is tucked in behind, accessed by a long tree lined, private laneway. Once back to the property, it’s wide and runs to the Shubenacadie River. The entire property is surrounded by woods and there’s a stunning wooded vault that runs part way through the middle of the farm to the river. The farmland has been organic for over 30 years. The house was built in 1915 and had a rear addition added later. The property has extensive gardens and has been on many garden tours. The owners are avid gardeners and after 28 years, it truly is a park-like setting. And there is a newer 24 x 18 barn with tractor shed attached. Eagles, otters, fox, rabbits and deer are your neighbours. So, if you love nature, privacy, gardens, organics and country living, don’t miss this dream property. More info

Known as the Lowden House Farm, the house is believed to have been built before 1815 by Samuel Lowden, a local tanner. The house has been on this site for at least 200 years, perhaps as far back as the 18th century. Timbers have been tree-ring dated to the year 1772.

The barn is amazing. It measures 30 x 40 feet and is about 30 feet high at the peak. It’s a 150 year old timber frame structure that was brought to the farm 7 years ago and rebuilt from the ground up on a new concrete slab foundation. It’s finished outside with details to complement the house, including salvaged period windows. Inside, it is wide open and absolutely stunning. It is spotlessly clean and has never been used for animals or vehicles.
