This Modified Vernacular, 1.5 story farmhouse was built about 1863, and is known as the Major Morse House. It sits on 11 tidy acres and is completely horse ready. It’s located in the picturesque hamlet of Paradise in the Annapolis Valley, and has direct frontage on the river. The house has been well maintained and updated. It sits on a solid stone foundation with excellent systems including septic, 200 amp electrical, drilled well, and a recent oil fired warm air furnace. The exterior is clad with traditional cedar shingles, painted yellow with white trims. There’s a beautiful covered front verandah and a large back deck facing the river and pasture with views of the North Mountain.

On the first floor there’s a spacious front entry, half bath, huge side entry mudroom with laundry, livingroom with double doors, family room with an efficient woodburning fireplace insert, a modern well appointed kitchen large enough to handle a harvest table, and a pantry. A neat staircase leads to the second floor. Up here you’ll find a sunny foyer, full bathroom and four bedrooms. A back staircase takes you down to the kitchen. Most of the floors throughout are wood. The interior and exterior have been recently painted and most of the windows have been replaced.


There are four excellent paddocks, all well fenced, a run-in shed plus a sand riding ring. Beyond these, along the river is a big hayfield. There’s a 44 x 24 barn with four box stalls, tack, feed area and loft above. There are two other useful sheds. And approximately 1 acre of the property has been professionally fenced and is perfect for dogs or even chickens!

If you’re looking for an excellent community, neat home, outbuildings, paddocks and pasture, don’t miss this one. There’s easy access to miles of trails and don’t forget the river is perfect for canoes and kayaks.
