361 College Grant Road, College Grant

SOLD - July 2020

$156,000. ~ Privacy, 1870s Home and Cottage
The first time I visited this property I was impressed by the wonderful level of privacy. The property includes 17.5 acres with blueberries, apple trees, gardens and mature trees. The house dates back to the 1870s and I'm told it was actually two homes joined together. It's very neat and quite original. Inside, you'll love the hand-hewn beamed ceilings, wide plank flooring and unique character. The ceilings are lower than 8 feet which adds to the charm but if you are over 6'2'', you may find them too low. Talk about charm, you enter into a huge room with lots of windows. It is currently used as an entry, but could be a family room, studio, home office or dining. Off this room is a back hallway and stairs to the second floor.

There's also a second ''cottage style'', 1.5 story building with an attached workshop. This building at one time was home to pottery making and the attached shop was used for the kiln. The main floor is open concept with a kitchen counter and sink and a small bath with shower and toilet. This cottage also has its own septic system. Upstairs is a loft bedroom. This cottage has not been used for several years, but could be an amazing studio, guest cottage or perhaps the start to your B & B business.

I love the setting of this 29 acre farm. It’s nicely situated on a quiet side road that loops in and back out again to the main highway, just 5 minutes from Tatamagouche. Truro, the largest town in the Province is an easy 30 minute drive. There are no close neighbours, little traffic on this loop road which provides a high level of privacy yet just minutes to shops and services. The farm is also bounded on two sides by the Waugh and Black Rivers . . . how nice is that. The land is gently elevated away from the rivers with the house and outbuildings sitting on a small knoll.

You will love the home and appreciate the workmanship. The original (front part) of the home was built in 1850. In 1993, the present owners gutted the interior and rebuilt it from the ground up. Part of this extensive undertaking was the construction of a substantial new two-story addition to the back side. The finished space now offers 2,800 square feet of comfortable living space.

The house has excellent systems including a drilled well, modern septic installed in 2002, oil fired boiler, fibreglass oil tank, upgraded plumbing, two heat pumps, woodstove, 200 amp electrical with circuit breakers and an efficient woodburning fireplace. The home has been well maintained. In 2008 a new steel roof was added.

You’ll love the outbuildings. There’s a 30 x 60 barn with lower level. Built with heavy timbers, it’s in amazing shape. It too has a recent steel roof. Then there’s a 50 x 55 barn addition, also with steel roof. Plus there is a modern 12 x 42 annex which was built and used as a showroom. It’s fully insulated and has it’s own bathroom and septic system.

The land is mostly cleared and farmable. Good soil with south/west exposure. This property is ideal for many uses. If you are searching Nova Scotia for a special farm with lots of exceptional outbuildings . . . this may be for you. More land is available.
