I have listed a new property at 602 Sangster Bridge Road in Upper Falmouth.
Johnston Vineyards is an exceptional opportunity to step into a well maintained successful vineyard, located in Upper Falmouth. The main house is spectacular and could also be a winery, country inn, event centre or just your quintessential country home. The original circa 1763 New England Planter farmhouse has been professionally upgraded, added to and restored from the new concrete foundation up. It offers over 6,800 sq ft of fabulous finished space. Two ponds, a 52 foot verandah, stone terrace, 5 fireplaces and long unobstructed views add to the charm. There's a large vineyard building in excellent condition and three additional buildings including a single bay garage, a triple garage and a two story workshop with bathroom. All of the buildings are in above average condition. The triple garage or the vineyard building are perfect for expansion to a "winery". The property includes 65.6 acres with 32 acres of grapes and room for further expansion. It's nicely elevated with southern exposure laid out in three blocks and includes 12 varieties. This highly sought after location in the Annapolis Valley's wine region is just 10 minutes to Windsor, 40 minutes to Halifax and within 25 minutes to Wolfville. Imagine the possibilities.

I have sold a property at 680 New Ross Road in Leminster.
This 66 acre farmstead is located in Leminster on a quiet, paved road with easy access to shops and services. The property has extensive road frontage and a high level of privacy. The house sits way back off the road surrounded by open fields, pasture, meadow-land and forest. A small river borders the east side and a brook flows across the back. The home is over 100 years old and in 2010 it was totally gutted and rebuilt, incorporating new insulation, new windows and doors, 5/8" drywall, custom trims, wood and slate floors, new electrical, new roof shingles, hot water, in-floor heating and much more. It is extremely charming and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a 22 foot south-facing livingroom, open concept kitchen and dining, and unique features. A new septic system was also installed in 2010. You'll love the barn. It's large with 17 box stalls, feed room, tack room and a modest apartment in the loft above, complete with bathroom and its own septic. Other outbuildings include an excellent dog kennel and a woodhouse. The property is set up for horses and is ideal for many other agricultural practices including a vineyard, haskap berries, sheep, organic farming and more. The Towns of Chester and Windsor are within 30 minutes away. The Village of New Ross is close by and Halifax is about 1 hour away. This is a rare combination of land, location, outbuildings and quaint home. And high speed internet, too!
