Your Chance to live Surrounded by the Splendors of Nature in Nova Scotia

Self-Sufficiency Can Be Yours
near Bridgewater & Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Are you wanting privacy, the option of isolation, but still want to enjoy the benefits of living close to civilization? All this is available on more than 50 secluded, wooded acres in Atlantic Canada. The property is only 8 to 15 minutes from both medical facilities and shopping in Bridgewater and Lunenburg, 1 hour north-east to the major city of Halifax, Nova Scotia and 2.5 hours south-west to the ferry to the US.

This off-grid location offers an immediate, simple lifestyle while offering a springboard to any future enhancements someone may wish to develop. Water is available through a dug well, pond and picturesque brooks at both the front and back of the property. There are two garden areas (one fenced) with raised-beds, as well as grapes, haskap berries and several fruit trees. Birch, evergreens and new hardwood growth provide camouflage, as the various structures have been deliberately situated near the middle of the parcel, more than 800’ from the local road. A locked chain across the unassuming lane ensures privacy.

The buildings on the property have metal roofs. These include:

  • a small, one-of-a-kind cabin, set on cribbing, with high, beamed ceilings and 2 small bedrooms
  • 23’ x 20’ barn with a horse stall, a cozy, finished 2nd storey and ladder access to a loft area for storage
  • 20’ x 6’, 3-bay covered woodshed
  • 13’ x 5’ garden shed as framework for the solar panels
  • 8’ x 6’ shed
  • 10’ x’ 10’, 2-storey ‘tree’-house, ideal as a playhouse, studio or nearby bug-out location
  • 14’ x 14’ combination greenhouse/chicken coop

A wofati greenhouse was begun, but now needs repair. In addition, there are two portable garage tents.

Two fenced paddocks are available, suitable for small horses, goats, etc.

The off-grid electrical system includes a small windmill and 1.4 kw of solar power with controller, 3000-watt inverter and 12-volt battery bank. Heating comes from two wood-burning stoves: one in the cabin and one on the first floor of the barn. There is a sawdust composting toilet, shower option and tankless, propane water heater.

This property is being sold AS IS/WHERE IS and OFF-THE-GRID. The owner has been quietly living on the land for many years. If desired, power grid connection is available at the road and septic and well could be installed by one of the qualified businesses in the area.

Although sad to leave, the older owner knows that it is time for others who are more able-bodied to take on the care and maintenance of this unique property, whether low-key as-is or with the option to build their dream home or to create a co-operative community. The choices are endless on this highly desirable, prepper-ready, diamond in the rough.

Offered at $344K Cdn CASH.
