Nova Scotia Farm Home and Property
For Sale

105 acres - $319,000.

Country real estate with large updated home,
lots of land, barns, water, woods and farm equipment.
This Nova Scotia farm property is located on Balmoral Road near East Earltown, close to Sunrise Trail along Northumberland Strait. The farm is quiet and private, near a sleepy country paved road used primarily by local families. You can't see your neighbours from the farm, or hear them.

In the last decade the farm has been updated several times. It has a four bedroom farm home, barns, 105 acres of land and a babbling brook flowing beside the house- one of three on the property. The acreage is half wooded (mature) with balance in open fields and meadows. There's an abundance of tested, quality fresh water from a deep drilled well. It is an ideal organic farm location with rich top soil protected from herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The land has been lying fallow for a decade- resting; waiting for you.

Mother Nature's Spirit lives at this N.S. Farm.

From each window of the house is a panorama of the changing seasons and resident wildlife. Watch rabbits and pheasants on the sunny, South-facing front yard and White-tailed Deer in the back and in every field. The farm's a bird lover's paradise: Among the migratory families returning each year to the farm are rare and endangered Barn Swallows (17 nests in 2013), American Bitterns as well as dozens of Hummingbirds. Virtually every species of NS birds can be found at the farm.

The fields and woods surrounding the farm offer a full range of Nova Scotia flora and fauna including wildflowers, mushrooms, apples, plums, wild roses and berries- and all critters, large and small. Most Nova Scotia tree species and wildlife are here. The farm land is level, accessible and well drained. There is a brook and beaver pond bordering the back of the property, a small trout brook flowing beside the house and a third near the West boundary.

The soothing sound of the brook meandering beside the house is a wonderful way to start the day or the last evening murmur competing with Peepers, Crickets and Hoot Owls. There are small Speckled trout in the brook and it's a perfect wonderland for barefoot children to safely explore nature's mysteries.

The farm home has four bedrooms, two modern four-piece baths, a large country kitchen with entry from front and back. There is a large office, arched dining & living rooms off the kitchen with original hardwood floors, large bright windows and French doors. The home has two large, covered verandas: one facing South for sunny lounging the other to the North to watch the last evening wink of sunset over the meadow.

There have been numerous upgrades to the farm house including all electrical and plumbing, the entire fresh water system, new oil furnace and fuel tank, two new chimneys (WETT inspected and cleaned 2014, hot water tank, septic system, roof, siding, most windows, insulation, basement and foundation. With the new, efficient furnace it is easy to heat and affordable to maintain. A professional energy audit was completed in 2012 and all recommendations were implemented.

Scott Armstrong led the charge in Parliament, speaking out on behalf of the Harper Conservative government against Canada's poorest elderly citizens. He then voted with his Conservative colleagues to kill a bill that would have allowed Nova Scotia's poorest senior citizens, including veterans, to pre-pay up to $2,500 of their funeral expenses without tax penalty.
