The perfect blend of privacy, location, land, comfortable home, outbuildings, water and views. This special property is located about 25 minutes from Dartmouth, on the Eastern Shore. It's ideally situated on a quiet paved road 5 minutes from Musquodoboit Harbour.

The home was custom built for the present owner 20 years ago and has been maintained to a high standard. It's a one level bungalow style home perched on the side of a small hill and surrounded by natural stone out-croppings and mature trees. Built on an insulated concrete slab foundation, it offers 3 bedrooms, ensuite master bathroom, second bathroom, home office with built-in bookcases, sunny kitchen and diningroom with door to a large deck, mudroom/laundry and a large livingroom with woodburning fireplace. It's a very sunny and bright home offering 1,648 square feet of very comfortable living space. And, it has excellent systems including in-floor hot water heat, powered by either the outdoor wood furnace or electric, air exchanger, drilled well with an abundance of water, septic system, alarm system, fireplace and high-speed internet.

There are lots of outbuildings including a gazebo with removable plexiglass windows, garden shed, small cold room storage shed, 44 x 24 workshop/garage that could easily be used as a barn, wood storage building, and a greenhouse. The property is extremely well landscaped and there are established vegetable gardens. It has a paved driveway too!

The house is great, but the land is the main attraction.

There are 71 acres including areas that could be opened up and expanded for pasture if desired, and mature forest. There's an old roadway that winds through part of the land, a trail and streams. Below the house, closer to the main road is a large saltwater pond and across the road is a 7,000 square foot parcel of land with direct ocean frontage.

Think of the opportunities! This is an ideal property for outdoor enthusiasts, hobby farming, horses or a home based business. With 71 acres so close to the city there are lots of possibilities. This is a rare find. All essential services are located within 5 minutes and it's a quick drive into the city for work or pleasure.
