Bold ocean views, a peaceful pond and a garden of mature trees and perennials are just a few of the highlights of this heritage cape cod in Cherry Hill on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Built in 1860, this three-bedroom home will delight those with an appreciation for vintage details: There's a sunny country kitchen with pantry, while the dining room boasts an original open-hearth fireplace with bake oven as well as beautiful wide-plank wooden floors. An original “birthing room” now serves as a cozy library. From the living room, you will love gazing out over the wide-open sea as well as the sparkling spring-fed pond. Up the winding staircase are two spacious bedrooms each with dormer windows and ample storage. One bedroom offers a convenient ensuite powder room. The recent addition of the third bedroom on the main floor was designed to take full advantage of the spectacular view of Apple Cove, its morning sunrises, magnificent full moons and the daily parade of fishing boats that waltz over the waves. This room leads to a home office and the main floor bathroom. The nicely treed yard includes more than 6.3 acres of woodland – plenty of space to flex your green thumb or simply play fetch with your retriever. A two-storey barn features an upstairs woodworking shop. (An array of large and small woodworking tools may be negotiated as part of your purchase.) The barn offers plenty of space to store fishing gear, kayaks, surfboards, bicycles and off-season garden furniture. A separate garden shed holds all the mowers, rakes and tools to keep your yard looking its best. Situated in a community renowned for its breathtaking beaches, charming cafes, shops and galleries, and even a vineyard, this home is sure to pull at your heartstrings. (Video to follow.)
