I have listed a new property at 5183 Highway 2 in Bass River. See details here
Bass River Farm is the quintessential country property; stunning home, amazing barn and 24.5 acres of land bordering on the Little Bass River. The farm is ideally located on the Glooscap Trail, just 20 minutes to Masstown, home of the Masstown Market and Butcher Shop, open daily year round. The quaint Town of Parrsboro and the larger Town of Truro are within 40 minutes. And just a short walk to the Cobequid Bay and the beach. The home was built in 1870 by a shipbuilding family and sits on a very solid stone and concrete foundation. In fact, this is one of the best basements I've seen in an older home. Clean as a whistle with concrete floor, good height and nicely upgraded. This home is stunning from all angles. The exterior was extensively restored in the late 1990s. Covered porches, bay windows, steep roof pitches and attention to detail compliment the charm of this century beauty. The interior is equally as stunning and has been totally upgraded over the past 15 years. It offers a huge kitchen with a unique antique island, formal diningroom and livingroom, exceptional entry foyer, pantry, bath and laundry on the main level. Plus a recent addition of an L-shaped 325 square foot modern sunroom with 11 floor to ceiling windows. WOW! Upstairs you'll find 4 bedrooms and a spacious bathroom with huge soaker tub. A beautiful staircase, stunning woodwork, 9' ceilings, softwood floors, a back staircase and balcony also enhance the classic interior. All the original windows were replaced with high-end Marvin wood windows. The home has excellent systems including drilled well, septic, 200 amp electrical, wood/oil combination heating and heat pump. The modern barn, with classic design and roof-top cupola, measures 30 x 40 and was built 12 years ago. It has 3 useful spaces including machine/garage space, insulated pottery studio and 39' long wood-working shop. The property boasts 24.5 acres with mature trees, open field and a forest along the river bank.
