3 Penns Road, 29 Coolens Road Shad Bay, Nova Scotia B3T 2B7

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom
Fireplace Heat Pump Waterfront Landscaped


Spectacular ocean lifestyle home and boathouse with 153 ft of water frontage on Shad Bay! 3 Penns Road and the boathouse at 29 Coolens Road are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Cape Cod style home sits perched overlooking the bay and offers beautiful sunsets from the large deck. Inside is bright and beautiful with lots of natural light, a double-sided fireplace between the kitchen and living room, large family room off the well-designed kitchen and there is even a quiet reading area or office tucked away. Upstairs features three bedrooms including a large primary bedroom spanning the length of the house plus a generous five-piece bath. Recent upgrades include a metal roof (with great solar potential), heat pumps, flooring, windows and doors, and water treatment system. A freshwater brook runs through the property next to the garden and the chicken coop. Across the road is the boathouse ideal for multiple uses such as sea kayaking, yoga, or simply a home office. The boathouse leads out to a large dock perfect for entertaining friends and family in the sheltered waterfront, in lee of prevailing winds, plus deep water mooring near public and private beaches. This property has great fishing right off the dock and all the water sports like paddle boarding, sea kayaking, and water skiing literally on your property. Plus, you have your own private beach accessible at mid to low tide with a fire pit for lobster boils. Nearby you'll find several coastal and inland hiking and biking trails, Granite Springs Golf Club, and Osprey Archery Club, plus Coolens Beach which is ideal for swimming with warmer water and a sandy bottom leading to a drop off. Only 25 minutes to Halifax, 15 minutes to Bayer's lake, 5 minute to schools and 45 minutes from the Halifax International Airport, it's a wonderful location. This is a special property and a must-see! (id:38326)
