Red Phoenix Farm is an amazing equestrian centre located in the pretty community of Summerville overlooking the Minas Basin. Windsor is 25 minutes away and Halifax is within 1 hour making it possible to live in the country and work in the city. The property includes about 37 acres with fenced pastures, forest and a beautiful 1 km riding rail.
The horse barn is just 9 years old with an addition in 2009. Also, in 2009, the owners built a fabulous 160’ x 70’ indoor arena which added more stall space and a 70 x 130 riding arena. In total there are 12 large stalls with System Fencing, a wide alley, tack room, feed room, hay storage, wash stall and a heated tack room with bathroom and laundry. About 10 acres is fenced with 5 paddocks.
The house sits well back off the road on a hill with nice views. It’s a pretty setting, indeed. The original part of the house is over 100 years old but it has been well updated, and remodeled in recent years. A large rear addition was added and an attached double car garage with storage above enhance the traditional “connected” Nova Scotia Cape architecture. It’s a big house with 3,800 square feet of living space. The owners love to cook so they completely renovated the kitchen creating an almost commercial-like creative cooking space. With lots of space, stainless steel countertops and individual work stations, this kitchen is a cook’s dream. There is plenty of space for entertaining, too.
The main floor includes a huge diningroom, games room/library, sitting room, butler’s pantry and family room adjoining the kitchen. There’s also a huge mudroom connecting the house to the garage and a main floor bedroom with ensuite bath. And, there’s a back room ideal for another bedroom or home office. There are both front and back staircases. Upstairs, there are 6 more bedrooms, laundry, a spacious 4 piece bath and a master bedroom with huge ensuite. All the bedrooms have large closets and one bedroom even has another room attached making it a “double room”. The house is ideal for a large family, a B & B or a home based business.
There’s a newly built deck off the kitchen and a swimming pool too, for those hot summer days. The house has great systems including a drilled well, newly installed propane furnace, recent septic system, updated plumbing and wiring and high speed internet. The house sits on a solid foundation partly stone, but mostly concrete with a concrete floor. There’s even a finished portion of the basement with a long “dance studio” room perfect for exercise of any kind. And, the wine lover in the family will enjoy the wine cellar.
Red Phoenix Farm is a rare find with a wonderful upgraded home and excellent horse facilities. It’s ideal for a boarding barn, breeding farm or private use. For more information or a personal tour, give us a call. Thanks.
