Considering a move to a Nova Scotia town tends to be equal parts of finding the right town and your perfect dream house. This province has an abundance of very interesting towns and villages neatly positioned around the coast and others inland a bit. As a buyer you are looking for a community that suits your lifestyle and a home that provides the features you want, plus listed at a fair and reasonable price.

Let's talk about Shelburne, one of my personal favourites. It dates back to 1783 and is known as the ''Loyalist landing'' which speaks to its historical connections. Many of Shelburne's buildings date back to these Loyalist times. It has a spectacular waterfront and the ''third best'' natural harbour in the world. WOW! So, if you want to be close to the sea or enjoy boating, you'll love this seaside town.

What about services? There are schools, the Roseway Hospital, fantastic yacht club, the Osprey Theatre for live performances, car dealerships, pharmacies, a small mall, food stores, hardware and building supplies, garden centre, gas stations, yes a Tim Hortons, lots of shops and services, yoga, recreation facilities, pubs and restaurants including one of my favourites in the province, ''Charlotte Lane''. Oh, and the ''Boxing Rock'' craft beer brewery. If you're a gardener, you'll love the climate in this area, ranked #1 in the province. White sand beaches, hiking and biking trails and golf are all close by. The City of Halifax is within a 2 hour drive.

Ok, so Shelburne sounds like it may be perfect for you. What about your new home. Well, if you're looking for a ''new'' home, well constructed with lots of charm, this property may be perfect. It has many special features, however, the most unique feature is the size of the property. It's located right in the town, a short walk to the waterfront and has 1.9 acres. Yes, almost 2 acres with gardens, a mature forest and town services. It was custom built in 2013 by a master cabinet maker - a stylish 2 bedroom, open concept bungalow with an abundance of windows and built-in features. Two bathrooms, large entry, lots of storage, well designed kitchen with island, a walk-in pantry, two side decks to capture the sun and a rear deck with clothesline. Special features like maintenance-free vinyl windows with pine interiors to match the rich natural all wood trims, solid wood interior doors, a Pacific energy woodstove and birch flooring enhance the interior. The exterior is finished with cedar shingles in keeping with the seaside vibe. The home is extremely well insulated and has an accessible concrete crawl space. It heats like a dream. Outside you'll love the 24' x 24' garage with 10 foot high ceilings. It's also finished outside with cedar shingles.

You'll love the low maintenance gardens and the wonderful veggie garden with picket fence surrounding. There's a wild flower garden and a woodshed. Sewer is municipal and municipal water is also available, but the owners preferred to have their own on-site well.

With 1.9 acres, imagine the possibilities. Your own intown forest - potential to sell or develop down the road. This is truly a rare find in a great town. Priced below replacement value.
