This 168 acre farm is located in Murchyville in Halifax County. It's located on a quiet country road about 5 minutes to the community of Middle Musquodoboit. Halifax, the airport, Stewiacke and other centres are all within 40 minutes. The farm has extensive road frontage. The house sits well back, elevated on a gentle hill with long views in all directions.

It was built in the 1970s and nicely renovated and updated over the past 7 years. It features an open concept main floor with modern kitchen (all appliances are included), centre island and walk-in pantry, master bedroom with 4 piece stylish ensuite bath and walk-in closet, second bedroom, another bathroom and mudroom. The basement has been finished to include 3 additional rooms, plus a central family room, storage and third bathroom. It has very good systems including septic, spring fed dug well, oil-fired hot water heating, 200 amp electrical, upgraded plumbing and humidifier. One special feature is the 8 foot wide, 3 sided, wrap-around deck. Oh, and you'll appreciate the recent steel roof.

Next is the barn. It's big. Formerly a beef farm, the barn was built for cattle. The current owners added 10 large box stalls for horses and pens for other livestock. Trucks and tractors can drive right into the second floor loft making it ideal for hay and equipment storage. Other outbuildings include several small sheds, 3 run-in sheds and a very cute 12 x 14 building ideal for a cabin, studio or other use. Part of the property is fenced for horses. There's also a sand riding ring and a round pen. The land includes about 85 acres of open land in pasture and hayland with the balance in forest. There is easy access around the farm and access to miles and miles of trails and side roads for hacking and walking.

Another very special feature is the reasonable price. BTW, if you like water, you'll love the fact that this farm has over 1,000 feet of river frontage. Wow!
