Peace and Tranquility: Situated amidst Nova Scotia’s maturing wine industry in the fertile Annapolis Valley, this outstanding 60 + acre property with almost 1,400’ of water frontage has commanding views over the Avon River Estuary spanning from Moses Mountain to Blomidon.
Just 2 km from the award winning Avondale winery, the property includes a sunny well maintained 2,749 sq. ft home with a gorgeous open plan kitchen and large picture windows. The spacious living room with cosy fireplace has an adjoining dining room. Three generous bedrooms and an updated bathroom finish the main floor. The lower level has a recently completed family room with wood burning stove and large sliding doors to the exterior. There is an additional bedroom and bathroom on this level. New laundry with pet bathing facilities and ample storage. The home has a heat pump for efficient heating and cooling and a sheltered west facing patio catches the sun all day.
Welcome each day with the morning sunrise streaming through golden birches to reveal a private 7 acre pond. From here the water exits to a babbling brook that weaves its way through a shady ravine to join Point Creek. Wide tidal banks reveal a majestic Acadian forest, and hours can be spent on your private beach fishing for striped bass or collecting fossils. If a sense of exploration is in your nature, follow the old farm track from the house to discover a secret meadow with a trail that leads to this property’s crowning jewel; spectacular sunsets framing the natural wonder of the Fundy tidal phenomenon which sculpts the beauty of the Avon River.
This headland property is historically known as Point Farm and dates back to 1760 when the Planters arrived on the Sally and Lydia.
Only 15 minutes to Windsor and 45 minutes from Halifax.
