Now here's an ideal farmstead for first-time buyers or retirees. It's priced very fairly and is located on a well maintained paved road along the North Mountain range above Canning. The house is just over 100 years old but has been upgraded by past and present owners. It sits nicely back off the road on an elevated knoll. The side door opens to a large entry with large laundry room on the right. Straight ahead is the country kitchen with lots of cabinets and a huge walk-in pantry.  The diningroom is separated from the kitchen by a partial wall. Across the hall is a spacious modern bathroom with large corner tub. In the front of the home is a cozy livingroom with woodstove, built-in bookcase and front entry. Upstairs there is another bathroom with sink and toilet and plenty of room to add a shower. A wall was removed between two bedrooms to create a large bedroom. This room is very sunny and the second doorway is still in place so new owners could easily replace the dividing wall to create two bedrooms again, if required. There is a small home office just before the master bedroom. This master is huge and has two 5 x 6 walk-in closets. There's also a large storage area that could be converted to a master bath. There is a stone foundation under the house. Most of the home has been insulated and all but 4 windows have been replaced. There is an oil furnace but the ducting has been removed. The owners heat with the woodstove and have some electric heat for back-up. There's a drilled well and septic tank and field. Across the yard is a 20 x 30, 1.5 story studio building. Connected to this building is a 24 x 30 horse barn with water and power. The property includes 7 acres which is overgrown. There is potential to open this up for pasture or gardening. There's also a brook on the west side which presents an ideal opportunity for a pond. Great community close to Scot's Bay beach, Cape Split and Blomidon Park. About 12 minutes to Canning and less than 23 minutes to Wolfville and Kentville.
