Stretching from an inland wooded stream to a hilltop lookout over the cove, and down to the waterfront boat house and wharf, there is every type of terrain and view with this 6.3 acre property. The Northwest Cove community, with its winding coastline road, is a quaint reminder of a once booming picturesque fishing village, along the Aspotogan Peninsula. Now it is a place for quiet respite, private solace, and extraordinary panoramic landscapes. An anchor for the soul.

“Stone Cottage” roves like the landscape, with secret windows and decks presenting views of the incoming fishing boats and outgoing adventure kayakers. Named so, because of the unique stone walls which embrace the galley kitchen. The generous main floor living, dining and family rooms provide ample space to roam. A lower level, with kitchen, front walkout and water views is perfectly set up for secondary rental income, or as an in-law suite. The third bedroom could also be turned into a separate summer rental unit, as there is a three piece ensuite attached. With a slight reconfiguration, the layout could even be a four unit rental. With deep water protected anchorage off the waterfront lot, should the new owner embark ona wharf restoration, additional ramp and float, and a sailboat harbour mooring, it would allow for direct access into the beautiful South Shore coastline waters.

Resulting from exposure to the elements of Atlantic storms, this home has had a thorough inspection, with repairs on the decks, windows and roof shingles. The current owner, a licensed plumber, has updated the plumbing and heating systems with special attention to green energy technology. Two airtight wood stoves, a pellet stove, additional insulation, galley kitchen, and solar/hot water heat pump are all recent additions. A substantial amount of upgrades have been tackled, in the ongoing process, and the price is a reflection of that. An excellent well water and fully functioning septic system completes the property.

Walking around the property, you’ll find several pear and apple trees, wild strawberry and raspberry bushes, grapes, rhubarb, currents, holly, magnolia, rhododendron, lilacs, wisteria, forsythia, roses, lupins, honeysuckle, and clematis. The marina and sailing school in Hubbards, Freewheeling bike touring in Blandford, and Northwest Cove Sail Loft yoga studio contribute to the vibrancy of the community.
