Nova Scotia's Smallest Winery
Here is an exciting opportunity to own an established, small winery operation in Nova Scotia's south shore region. It's perfect for a family business, a draw for a B&B enterprise or chefs looking for a property to offer "long table dinners" in a world-class setting. Elmwood Winery is tucked away in Pine Grove just 5 minutes from Bridgewater, the largest town on the South Shore. The property enjoys Wolfville loam soil, nice slope and southern exposure. From the beginning the vision has been to grow grapes naturally and produce quality wines in small batches, unfiltered to retain all its flavour. No herbicides or insecticides are used and everything from pruning and weeding to harvesting is done by hand. The property includes 23 acres of land with 2.5 acres of vineyard and surrounded by forest. It is uniquely situated at the very end of the road that passes by the local golf course and beautiful country homes. It's totally private, yet minutes to Highway 103 and all major shops and services.
You will LOVE the house! It was designed and custom built to exacting standards in 2002 using ICF construction (Insulated Concrete Foundation). All the exterior walls are concrete. The floors on both levels are concrete with in-floor, radiant, hot water heating. The exterior is finished with stucco. If first impressions count, you will be thrilled by the custom built, oversized, solid wood entry door. Inside, it's a WOW home. The main level includes a spacious open concept family room with wood burning efficient fireplace and exceptional cook's kitchen complemented by Miele appliances, concrete counter tops and rich wood cabinetry. There's a nice sunroom off this space looking over the vineyard. A formal diningroom, livingroom, 13 x 9 foyer, master bedroom with ensuite bath and walk-in closet, second bedroom, another 4 piece bathroom, study, laundry with 2 piece bath, and pantry complete the main level. The lower level has a wonderful studio space, 23 x 16, the third bedroom, utility room, storage and wine room. Overall, the home offers 2,400 square feet of very customized living space. Systems include propane, solar, 200 amp electrical, septic, drilled well, cable, air exchanger, alarm system, wood firreplace and high-speed internet. You'll appreciate the outbuildings, too! These include a 17 x 33 wine building, 21 x 26 machine shed, 17 x 6 wood storage building, 24 x 16 greenhouse and an amazing 24 x 16 timber frame gazebo/screen room.
