A contemporary farmhouse style, entirely constructed with locally milled woods including hardwood and softwood floors and trim (mostly of eastern white pine and red oak), this country home offers a beautiful rural setting, privacy, is nestled on a sun dappled hillside, and has been owned by the same family since it was first built in 1986. Located just beyond the border of the seaside town of Mahone Bay, this home would allow for an invigorating ten minute walk to all the immediate amenities one would need. It is five minutes walk to the ocean and is just a one hour drive to Halifax or the airport. The house has a generous covered verandah extending along the front with custom spindles crafted by a master turner. The large front foyer has a living room to the left, formal dining room to the right and great room at the back flanked by eat-in kitchen to the right and office-den to the left featuring a full wall of solid wood built-ins. An extension off the kitchen accommodates a mudroom-laundry-canning room that is used for making fall preserves and at the rear there is a generous four piece family bath well located after working in the garden. The second floor mezzanine overlooks the family room with well positioned wood burning stove and built-in window seat in the bay looking over the back of the property with field stone patio area ideal for summer barbecues. There is a family bath shared by two guest rooms and an exceptionally large master with adjoining nursery or sitting room. The basement has high ceilings and with its large exterior entry would adapt well as a workshop. There is a chicken coop toward the foot of the driveway and this would be the ideal property for any array of family pets. The home has nice views over the rolling country side with a good mix of mature deciduous and conifers. Property to be subdivided before closing. Upper field and Balsamea House not included in purchase price. Upper lot (1.1 acres) available at additional cost of $89,900.
