We’re not selling you a house; We’re selling you your own private paradise!

Wrapped in a full acre of nature, this quaint 2/3 bedroom house oozes ‘cottage charm’. Seven minutes from Down Town Truro, it is walking distance to the hospital, RECC, and Walmart complex, and will have you on the highway within minutes. This is country living at its finest, with two nearby walking trails, and still within town limits. We’ll even leave the hottub cleaned and ready for you to climb into once you’ve assumed ownership!

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 protected gardens. Multiple decks, stone patios, walkways, and established perennial gardens 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! Enjoy fox sightings in the neighbouring fields with no worries for your own outdoor pets, securely housed in an established coop complete with earth topped wired floor and shelter. Watch from the front window as deer move through the yard with their young. And even in the dread of winter, enjoy beautiful, soul soothing views of your property from every window in the house.

With regular repairs and upgrades over the past 15 years, including several this year, you will find the home fresh, well maintained, carpet free, and ‘move in’ ready. Currently set up with 2 bedrooms on the upper level, the garden room can be easily converted back to a third bedroom simply by hanging a door in the existing frame. 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 this summer. The garden room conversion was completed in 2018, along with a custom built work station. 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. And much of the main level has been repainted in the past 8 months, including all trim, doors, cupboards, and several ceilings. The original brick fireplace received a custom finish this summer, the driveway and walks were re-gravelled, and the last carpet was replaced with new laminate.

The lower level once housed a 2 bedroom apartment before being utilized for additional living space. A reno, started 4 years ago, remains incomplete; however, all the structure is in place for further development, including 2 bedrooms that could be easily restored for use, and one continuous laminate floor throughout most of the lower level. Though dated, the 4 piece bath at the bottom of the stairs is fully functional and still used occasionally. Wiring for appliances and plumbing are still in place in the former kitchen, and ductwork is in place for a dryer. So, whether desiring additional space for a growing family or choosing to utilize the space for profit from a rental unit, a small investment will soon return the lower level to functional space designed to specifically meet your needs!

Priced at $187 000, this turnkey sale includes fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, air conditioner, dehumidifier, electric fireplace, hot tub, screen tent, and garden arbor hide-away. Most furniture on the main level of the house is also negotiable in the sale. We will also throw in a $300 paint voucher for those who can’t live with a bohemian red bedroom! All reasonable offers are welcome.
