Steeped in a rich history of marine biology, it is worth it to get a tour of this property, to see the remarkable value. There are so many options here; a residential home, income property, a restaurant, or a commercial enterprise. In every case, you will be celebrating the commanding ocean views of Mahone Bay and the Aspotogan Peninsula. Built to exacting standards of 1983 industrial commercial code, the building is a clean slate, waiting for the finishing interior design touches, dependent on its future use.

The estate has a remarkable 3400 square feet of living space including a bright living dining area and spacious office on the ground floor. The ocean side of the house features an expansive fifty foot wide deck, which would be perfect for entertaining! On the opposite side, relish in the natural light from a massive glassed-in sun room with direct southern exposure. With five bedrooms, and three bathrooms, guests are welcome to spend the night. An additional breakfast nook kitchen area on the main floor is great for morning starts. Almost every room has an ocean view.

Direct drive in access to the basement from the west end of the property allows many storage options, including vehicles, boats or equipment.

The property has well groomed lawns and one hundred and twenty five feet of direct ocean frontage, as well as multiple parking spots and a privacy gate. The building sits on an acre of land, which will be subsequently subdivided from the existing twenty two acre lot, at point of sale.

You can’t find a better location. Around the corner is Blandford’s most famous seafood chowder at “The Deck” restaurant, and for the cycling enthusiast, Bayswater Beach is a four kilometre ride. The spoils of the village of Chester are a mere twenty minutes, and the city life of Halifax is less than an hour.
