Sheltered by the North Mountain, the community of Lakeville has always been a popular place to live. Rarely do we see farms for sale in this area, so this 18 acre property will surely be of interest to anyone looking for a well maintained farm on the Valley floor just 15 minutes to Kentville. It's situated on a quiet country road with long, open views in all directions. The house dates back to the 1800s and was extensively upgraded in 2010. It sits on a concrete foundation providing some useable space in the basement area. The two floors above have been completely upgraded to a very nice level. A side door opens to a very spacious mudroom with laundry area and 2 piece bath. To the left is the kitchen and what a beauty it is. It was custom built by a Valley cabinet maker. There are plenty of cabinets on three walls, a beautiful island and a built-in bench on the far wall. Next to the kitchen is a very large open area providing two separate areas for large scale dining and a livingroom. This faces southward and gets lots of sun. At the far end is a fireplace with an efficient wood burning insert. A door opens to a full length covered verandah, making this space ideal for entertaining during the summer months. Off the living area is a spacious room ideal for home office or family room. You'll love the main floor master bedroom with walk-in closet and well appointed ensuite bath complete with soaker tub and huge custom glass and ceramic shower. Upstairs you'll like the sunny spacious foyer. There's another bathroom with claw-foot tub and corner shower, 3 bedrooms, linen storage and an open space along the hallway, perfect for a computer or study area. The house has updated systems, a drilled well, septic, vinyl windows, an oil fired heating system and an efficient woodburning fireplace. It's fully insulated and heats very well. Overall, it provides 2,500 square feet of very comfortable living space.

There are two amazing outbuildings. Next to the house is a huge garage which includes a triple car garage, storage, a small workshop and an office. Opposite the house is another large building that measures 50 x 120. This building is divided into 3 sections. The first 20 feet includes workshop and storage space with a small loft above. Then you enter the main section of the building and WOW, what a surprise. On one side is a fantastic horse barn with lots of storage, pens, tack-up area and 8 box stalls. The other side of this building is 30 x 100 with two big roll-up doors making it ideal for equipment, hay or just about any other use. It has water and power, concrete floor, built-in cabinets, work benches and finished walls. The property around the house and barns is nicely landscaped. The laneway and entire barnyard is paved. The land consists of about 18 acres, fenced paddocks and sand ring. This farm offers a unique opportunity for horses, farming or a home based business location. The home is spotless and the buildings are in exceptional shape.
