This farm has it all. Updated home, land, waterfrontage, privacy, outbuildings, long views, ponds, over-supply of water, comfort and charm. It's located in Moose Brook on Highway 215 in Hants County, about 40 minutes from Truro, 15 minutes to Kennetcook, and within 1 hour to Metro. The circa 1869 farmhouse was gutted in 2002, right back to the studs. A new concrete foundation was placed underneath the structure and updated from the ground up. Renovations included new windows and doors, fully insulated, completely rewired, all new plumbing and heating, new drywall throughout, woodstove added, modern kitchen, cedar shingles to the exterior sidewalls, new mudroom and side deck.

It offers 1,600 square feet of very comfortable living space. The main floor consists of a mudroom entry with laundry, spacious eat-in kitchen with lots of cabinets and island, 2 piece bathroom, study with woodstove, livingroom and sitting room. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms. The master has a large walk-in closet. And there's a large 4 piece bathroom. The back staircase from the kitchen leads to a 3rd bedroom on the upper floor. It sits on a fully insulated concrete foundation with walk-out entry making the basement space very accessible and useful. Systems include a 200 amp electrical panel with circuit breakers, two wells (one delivers 110 gallons per minute), hot water baseboard heating powered by a new (2019) high efficiency propane boiler and modern septic system insulated in 2002. The house and three outbuildings had new steel roofs installed in 2018.

Outbuildings include at 22.5 x 20 insulated garage/workshop, 23 x 11 storage building and a 20 x 26 small barn. All buildings are in excellent condition and ideal for many uses. The house and outbuildings are clustered together in the middle of the property, down a long laneway with big open fields on all sides. The property has frontage along the Minas Basin with stunning views from the land. The property consists of 65 acres with about 50 acres of production farmland, some old varieties of apple trees, blueberries and a hedge row of trees down one side.

The setting is remarkable. The views are outstanding. The home is move-in ready. The buildings are useful. This is a rare find and ideal for farming, homesteading, horses, an art centre, retreat centre or tourist business.
