About 176 Murphys Road

6.24 Acres of pristine oceanfront running east to west, almost entirely surrounded by ocean and awaiting its new dreamer. There are 2 sheltered coves: Deep cove on the Southern shore and Monk's Cove (Murphy's Cove) on the Northern side. Two driveway bases are in but require some clean-up. The lower driveway is approx 560' and runs along the shoreline of Murphy's Cove to the old homestead portion of the land that used to have a full home with (beautiful views) well and septic. The home is torn down now and requires a clean up. The upper driveway is approx. 350' and leads to a clearing with an old well that has been filled in for safety reasons, a full concrete pad for a garage or small cottage and beautiful views with some clearing. The property is geographically named "Dogfish Point" a unique feature rare with Nova Scotia private properties. The property provides direct access and view of some of the 100 Wild Islands which is part of the protected Eastern Shore Islands Wilderness Area, noted for their historical and ecological significance and have been featured in Canadian Geographic. These islands offer sheltered coves of turquoise water with pristine white sand beaches, dramatic windswept headlands, and unique boreal rainforests, bogs, and barrens, as well as a rich diversity of seabirds, songbirds, and shorebirds. Approx. 70 km east of this property is Sherbrooke village and Port Hilford (please google both) awarded a preferred location for the 2020 Whale Sanctuary Project for retired belugas and possibly orcas. The Marine Drive on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia is largely undiscovered and one of the most pristine, photogenic and unspoiled coastlines in the province. I cannot say enough about this gorgeous land and area! Bring your hiking shoes and be ready to be impressed.
