New property listed in Kings County, Annapolis Valley

I have listed a new property at 645 Canard Street in Lower Canard. See details here

Basin Bliss: a character-filled farmhouse in Lower Canard, with a young vineyard. Situated in Lower Canard overlooking the tidal flats of the Minas Basin, this property is ideal for someone interested in growing grapes in Nova Scotia’s vibrant wine industry. The Vineyard has been leased to one of the Valley's wineries in the past but is currently free of a land lease. This 100% Vitis vinifera vineyard has 11 acres under vine and is planted with Pinot Noir, Gamay, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and a small amount of Pinot Blanc. Its gentle, south- facing slope and proximity to the Bay of Fundy's Minas Basin, make it a well-suited site to grow grapes. And with its farmhouse, detached garage and matching barn, this is a future vineyard owner's dream location. The current dwelling dates back to 1893. The house has been well cared for, maintained, updated and upgraded over the years. From the convenient mudroom you enter into the heart of the home, the kitchen. The bright kitchen with ample storage is the perfect place to unwind. From the kitchen you can access the 4pc bath and spacious dining room with a beautiful built-in cabinet. Off the dining room you will find the office/ den, currently used as a music room. The long hallway leads to the living room with a cozy pellet stove and sunroom. The house is bright and cheerful because of the bay windows on the west side and amazing sunroom that faces south. The views from the sunroom are unmatched! Upstairs are 3 good sized bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet and half bath off the stairs. A full undeveloped basement with a cold room houses the utilities.
