This custom built architecturally designed home sits well back off the road on an elevated 4.4 acre site with extensive frontage on the Annapolis River. It's nicely situated between Bridgetown and Historic Annapolis Royal in the Annapolis Valley region. The house is 25 years old and has been well maintained and upgraded. The design was inspired by the iconic Nova Scotia Cape-style farmhouse, while the interior takes on a modern feel with large, open rooms and lots of windows to capture both the sun and the views. It offers 2,400 square feet of living space on two levels.

The main floor incorporates a spacious front entry with vaulted ceiling and stairs to the upper floor. Across the back side facing south with unobstructed river views is the open concept kitchen, dining and livingroom stretching over 36 feet. A cozy corner fireplace, doors to a deck and big windows enhance the charm. The master bedroom with walk-in closet and ensuite bath are located on the west side. There's a large family room and home office off the kitchen. And there's a side mudroom and laundry room with a 2 piece bath. On the second level, you'll love the open sitting room at the top of the stairs with huge window overlooking the river and long views of the surrounding countryside. There are two large bedrooms and another 4 piece bath on this level, both with large walk-in closets. And a surprise. Off one of the bedrooms is an 11.6 x 10 foot darkroom. This unique space is ideal for many other uses and offers a passageway (if desired) to the attached studio/workshop.

The house sits on an excellent, dry concrete foundation and has excellent systems including new oil fired, hot water furnace, drilled well, septic system, 200 amp electrical, steel oil tank, two heat pumps, air conditioning, cable and high-speed internet. Interesting trims, custom details, softwood floors, big closets and lots of built-ins add to the comfort.

Sounds good so far . . . it gets better. A carport breezeway connects the house to an amazing 26' x 22' two-level studio workshop. The main floor is wide open, insulated, and heated. The ceiling is 8' x 8' high and there are 5 big windows and 18 overhead lights. This space is ideal for a workshop, studio, home gym, home office or other uses. And there's a full unfinished floor above if you need more space. A small 11' x 19' detached garage is used for canoes and garden equipment. The river is perfect for small boats and fishing. The shoreline is ''rocked'' to help prevent erosion, and there are several sheltered spots along the side inlet to launch your kayak or canoe. Mature trees, year round stream, expansive lawn and of course, the amazing elevation enhance the uniqueness of this riverfront property. This is a very special property.
