Herring Cove – Armdale, Purcell's Cove

This is a rare opportunity to own the largest waterfront property in Herring Cove where few (if ever) large lots come on the market . Herring Cove is an historic fishing village located within HRM (10 min. from Armdale Rotary and 20 min to downtown Halifax). Since the 1750's, generations of fisherman have set out from this picturesque little harbour at dawn. Remarkably, this is a 1/2 acre property situated on the west side of the Cove with views along the cove through to the ocean and 143 feet of useable water frontage for moorage. Another plus is that the property is connected to HRM water and sewer services - whereas as many in the village still rely on well and septic.The existing home (at 1816 sq.ft) is a spacious and comfortable family home with 3+1 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and a lovely bright living / dining  room overlooking the cove and village. A spacious eat-in kitchen enjoys the large west-facing garden. The lower level has a walk-out to the garden and waterfront. Here you will find a rec room, the 4th bedroom, 3rd bathroom, laundry room and workshop. Flexible space to suit your future plans. Hardwood floors, Heat pump 2014 and new roof shingles 2019. The wide lot is highly suitable for the construction of a large estate home if desired.  It is possible that the property is subdividable, however it was never explored by the current owner and would need verification by the buyer.
