286 Silver Point Road, Martins River, NS (MLS® 202014428): This charming, "home by the sea" has stood at this same spot for more than two hundred years. More recently, it has been extensively renovated, keeping all the old world warmth, and along the way giving 'history' a little boost of TLC. This home features exposed beams, softwood and slate floors, and is just the right size for a pair of empty nesters. The dining room and living room have had their windows enlarged to take advantage of the beautiful water views over the bay where the fresh waters of Martins River meet the ocean. There is a separate side entry near the parking area that has slate floors, a wardrobe for coats, and a stacking washer and dryer. The dining room features its original open dish cupboard and fireplace which has been outfitted with a small wood stove. The kitchen has slate floors with marble inserts and offers a stainless gas cooking range with convection oven. Across the hall from the dining room is a generous sized living room, and like the dining room features plank softwood floors in keeping with the style of the house. At the rear of the house is a room currently being used as an at-home salon. This room, with its adjoining marble tiled bath, would, apart from its use as a home business, be ideal for a ground floor bedroom. The second floor has two large vaulted rooms, with exposed beams, and a tidy four piece bath. There is a second floor deck overlooking the bay from one of the rooms which would double well as a studio. The back yard is fully fenced for pets but would also be suitable for use as a protected garden. The property has a new septic and drilled well, a recently re shingled roof and is on an exceedingly quiet winding road overlooking the ocean. There are beautiful sunrises at the front of the house and the location is ideally suited to dogs and walkers. Martins River is just five minutes to exit 10 off the 103 Highway and a short drive to the town of Mahone Bay or Chester. Martins River is known for its friendly neighbours.
