This 98 acre saltwater farm offers new owners the opportunity to experience a unique lifestyle. Located on the shore of the Bay of Fundy with the highest tides in the world, the property includes over 20 acres of productive farmland, forest and about 1,500 feet of direct water frontage. The rocky and rugged beach is just 10 steps down from the land, providing easy access. There are two older roadways winding through the property, a brook and two bridges.
The house was built in 1788 by Henry Charleton, owner of the first sawmill in the area. It has remained in the present family for the past 150 years. Over the past 40 years the owners have completely gutted the original Cape style home and rebuilt it from the foundation up. It's fully insulated, rewired and replumbed. It has excellent systems including a huge septic system and a spring-fed well with an endless supply of water. All the doors and windows have been replaced. The roof was stripped, double-boarded for extra strength and shingled. All the interior drywall is 5/8" fire rated. The exterior sidewalls are cedar shingles. And, there's an insulated concrete block foundation under the original frame. The basement is high and dry. It has the charm of an older Cape with the fit and finish of a newer home. Inside you'll find a large mudroom, cozy kitchen, spacious diningroom, small study and livingroom overlooking the water on the main level. Upstairs there is a full bath, two guest bedrooms and a master bedroom with walk-in storage. Overall, about 1,300 square feet of living space.
The house sits way back off the road positioned on a gentle hill surrounded by mature trees. There's also an excellent 32 x 30, 1.5 story garage/workshop with lots of power and a 2 piece washroom. The building could also be converted to a barn for animals, if required. This special farmstead is located in the seaside community of Port Lorne, just 12 minutes from Bridgetown in Annapolis County.
It comes with a lifetime supply of sunsets, sunrises, salt air, seabirds, seals, drop dead gorgeous views and total privacy. Beachcombing, whale watching, long walks in the woods, fishing and bonfires are a few of the extras. And yes, there is high speed internet.
