Location, Location, Location!

It really is all about location! We’ve truly loved the unique combination of peace, privacy, but with great neighbors. Nova Scotia is full of beautiful views and land, but mostly those places are way off the beaten track. There really are many endless opportunities that you do with this Luxury Farm Real Estate!

Along the farm road to Hill House, cottages or quality houses could be built having the same spectacular ocean view as Hill House. I have been asked why I don’t develop the property before selling. The answer is if my husband were still here, we’d no doubt do that.

You will never find another location that matches the beauty of Nova Scotia, Canada!

 

Pomquet – Close To Beaches, Activities, Shopping Centres

The village of Pomquet is a small, but bustling Acadian village of about 700 people. The people are mostly Acadian heritage – meaning their ancestors immigrated to Nova Scotia from France over 400 years ago.

They have built a wonderful modern school from primary to Grade 12. It has all the bells and whistles. There are always concerts and celebrations going on in the village and all are welcome. This village of 700 people even hosts a Winter Carnival.

We are close to a lot of amenities and attractions locally in Antigonish County:

Pomquet Beach Park

Pomquet Bach Park is 10 min. down the village road and it’s a wonderful 4 mile beach = famous for it’s Piping Plovers.

There’s parking, interpretive boardwalks, changing rooms, toilets, and lifeguards. There are never a lot of people on the beach, and often you have it to yourselves.

The water temperature in mid summer to mid fall is almost tepid. – Our 3 yr. Old granddaughter froliced in the ocean mid October.
