Hobby Farm on the South Shore of Nova Scotia

Mahone Bay, near Bridgewater, Nova Scotia

Welcome to a lovely homestead on over 2.5 acres just 5 minutes outside of the beautiful town of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.

This adorable farmhouse built in 1863 full of character and charm sits in complete privacy yet 5 minutes to local beaches, town and amenities. Across the road you will find trails for atv's, walking, biking , horses etc. Prime location for wanting to homestead/ farm yet close to town and activites for children as well.

Inside the home, the original floors and beams were love at first sight for us. 3 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, finished attic, and all lovingly updated to maintain it's farmhouse charm. Kitchen has open shelving, large farmhouse sink and serene views throughout every window. The entire home is abundant with sunlight as every room has a skylight and lots of windows. The house is 1550 sq feet not including the finished attic. There is also a cellar down in the basement which is great for storing all the deep freezers and garden bounty. The wood stove easily heats the entire home. There is oil heating as well but we have never needed it.

Outside you will find a 9x9 barn with a loft that now houses 4 sheep. A beautiful glass greenhouse (9x16) which we have electricity to. Another hoop greenhouse (12x30). A chicken coop with a run alongside the garden. Two gardens, one 50x50 with beds and another slightly larger, both organically fertilized with manure from our organic fed animals. There is a treehouse for children with a zipline and a wood shed that holds 5 cords of wood. Apple trees all throughout the property. There is an additional well on the property which we have used to water the gardens. Never have to worry about running dry.

There is an extra driveway that would need to be cleared to the road adjacent to the main driveway that can lead to the back property if one would want an airbnb with own driveway access. Great income property potential.

$615 000.
