Property Description

We’re not selling a house; we’re selling you your own personal retreat – a place to fully relax and unwind without ever leaving home.

Wrapped in a serene acre of nature, this quaint 4 bedroom/2 bath house oozes ‘cottage charm’ with a touch of whimsy. Seven minutes from downtown Truro, it is walking distance to the hospital, RECC, and Walmart complex, and will have commuters on the highway within minutes. This is country living at its finest, with two nearby walking trails, and still within town limits. With living room, garden room, games room AND project room in the layout, there is lots of room for everyone to find their own space!

Set back off the street, deer resistant gardens provide a front yard perfect for viewing wildlife up close and personal, while fully fenced gardens and decks nestled on the back half of the property provide full privacy and keep deer out. Multiple decks, stone patios, walkways, and established perennial beds surround a small fish/frog pond and white sand beach pit. 1/3 of the property remains treed with cherry, service berry, elderberry, willow, evergreen, and more.

After a rain, enjoy the sound of the babbling brook that runs along the north boundary line. Or sprawl out in a hammock and enjoy the songs of more than 23 species of birds that frequent the yard on a regular basis, along with chipmunks, butterflies, peepers, cicadas, and more! We even have a resident flying squirrel and a visiting eagle! Watch from the front window as deer move through the yard with their young, and catch the occasional glimpse of the neighbourhood fox in the field next door. And if you choose, take advantage of the fully wired bird coop attached to the back of the shed and raise your own chickens!

With regular repairs and upgrades over the past 15 years, including several over the past couple of months, you will find both levels of this house fresh, well maintained, carpet free, and ‘move in ready'. The garden room was developed in 2018 and provides views of the sunrise. The 4 piece bath on the main level was gutted to studs and modernized in 2014, including the addition of a new stacking washer/dryer combo. A new roof was installed in 2014, and a steel roof added to the shed last summer. A steel liner was put in the flu during the winter of 2018/19, with the oil tank replaced in 2017. All windows on the upper level are easy-clean Kohler double panes.

The basement level was restored to ‘fully finished’ status over the past couple of months. A family/games room was developed, repairs were made to other rooms, and a new sump pump was installed. Most of the house has been repainted inside over the past 9 months, including trim, doors, cupboards, and ceilings. The original brick fireplace received a custom finish early last fall. And last summer the driveway and walks were re-graveled, decks were freshly stained, and gardens were mulched.

Priced at $189, 500, this turnkey home includes all basic appliances. A quick close can be negotiated. All reasonable offers are welcome.
