Overview:

Here is an unusually designed house in a delightful setting with lovely cleared water frontage on "The Basin," well known for water sports and sea breezes. The 2.3 acre lot is uniquely attractive with a wide spread of land to lend maximum privacy, gardening opportunities and an ocean panoramic. The house is set well back from the road, up a gentle slope from the ocean shore and nicely located well away from the neighbors. The house has 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor with 2 guest rooms in the fully developed basement along with a family room that stretches from front to back, providing ample space for a home theater. All the rooms are a generous size. Two key rooms, the master and the eat-in kitchen are very large with the latter opening onto the back deck, gazebo and sea view. The surrounding community has a charmingly rural village feeling. "The Basin," reaching out to open ocean through numerous islands and protected passageways, is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, osprey/eagle watching and swimming. Only minutes from the local hospital, 15 minutes from national grocery stores, businesses and educational facilities, this property combines convenience with the best of country living. Area schools offer opportunities to both children and adult ed. with the presence of the Port Hawkesbury branch of the Nova Scotia Community College specializing in Marine training. This is a 3000 sq. ft. home with a great location close to an outstanding breadth of activities.

Comment:

The community is knows as Whiteside and is well known for its desireable proximity to Port Hawkesbury, schools and hospital while retaining a quiet country environment. The oceanfront in this neighborhood (referred to locally as "The Basin") is highly desireable given its protected nature, cooling breezes and suitability for water sports.

Swimming, saling, canoeing and fishing around the bay amongst the many islands are favorite passtimes as is watching eagles, ospreys, loons, geese, ducks and seals. Sunsets over the water are unbeatable due to the panoramic expanse of the view out to sea where the sun sinks into an ocean horizon.

By the way, an unusual but favorable aspect of the Whiteside area is the frequency of its fire hydrants - a welcome safety factor for families and insurance companies. Whiteside and The Basin (Inhabitants Harbour) are part of a larger area known as Lower River Inhabitants for the river of the same name.

The location of this home is truly ideal for a family.

The shoreline and shallows invite a dock, steps down the slope, a rock surf break and a swimming platform. The fact that some of the nearby residents have added these structures to their properties demonstrates their feasibility.

There is a storage shed / baby barn in good condition adjacent to drive to the East side of the house.
