Mother Nature's Spirit lives at this Nova Scotia Farm.

From each window of the house you can witness 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 beside the house is a wonderful way to start the day or the last evening murmur competing with Peepers, Crickets and Hoot Owls as you drift off to sleep. There are small Speckled trout in the brook and it's a perfect wonderland for children to safely explore nature's mysteries.

The farm has one of the larger country homes in the area with four bedrooms; two modern four-piece baths; a large country kitchen with entry from front and rear of house; large office with private entrance; 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 in the last decade including all electrical, the entire fresh water system, new oil furnace and fuel tank, new chimneys (WETT inspected and cleaned 2013), new septic system, new roof, all new siding, most windows, insulation, basement and foundation.

Nova Scotia Conservative MP Scott Armstrong
denies elder poverty; won't help Canada's poorest senior citizens.
He misled Parliament claiming seniors are better off now than ever before!
He voted against Bill C-480 that would have allowed seniors to prepay funeral tax-free with $2500 from savings.
