This terrific 98 acre farm is located in Marshville on scenic Route 6 along the shores of the Northumberland Strait. Tatamagouche is just 10 minutes west and offers all essential shops and services. River John is just 10 minutes east. Truro, the largest town in the Province is within 35 minutes. Beaches, parks, the famous Jost winery, live theatre, golf and a boat marina are all close by. The farm has lots of frontage and gentle elevations towards the back.

The house was built in 1916 and sits way back off the road down a tree lined laneway. It’s full of character inside and out, with lots of windows, interesting trim details and many upgrades. Over the past 15 years, it has been extensively remodelled and modernized. The main floor was opened up to create an open concept with large well appointed kitchen that opens to a diningroom, bath and livingroom with wood-burning fireplace. There’s a large mudroom entry, side porch and closed-in sunporch across the front. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The house is fully insulated with upgraded electrical and plumbing, modern septic system and a drilled well. It sits on a solid stone foundation and has an excellent roof and shingled sidewall exterior.

Outbuildings include a one level 24 x 36 barn with workshop space and an attached 24 x 10 run-in shed. There’s a small chicken coop and two useful storage buildings (12 x 10 and 12 x 16). The land includes 15 acres of pasture, 21 acres of hayfield, about 50 acres of forest and the balance is open land with approximately 4 acres of ponds. The ponds were constructed by Ducks Unlimited. They’re spring fed and flow from one to another and have lots of water. Mowed walkways around the ponds add to their appeal.

This farm offers an ideal setting and location for sheep, horses, organics, hobby farming, vineyard and other tourist related enterprises.
