368 Long Cove Road Port Medway, Nova Scotia B0J 2T0

2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom
Fireplace Acreage Partially Landscaped


Nestled among beautifully landscaped gardens on 20 private acres, this maritime homestead with ocean views over Medway Harbour offers a rural seaside setting within walking distance to the historic fishing village of Port Medway. Hopkins Cottage, named after Mr. Hopkins, the village boot maker, was built in the 1840?s with traditional post and beam construction, and much of its timeless charm and character have been preserved. The living room features a handsome wood burning fireplace and windows oriented to capture the morning sun and ocean views. Two generous bedrooms on the main floor, with a full four piece bathroom and laundry, make the home ideal for anyone seeking the convenience of one level living. A central stairwell provides access to the second level of the home that is yet undeveloped and offers a variety of options for creating additional living space highlighting the original character of the post and beam construction. A bright eat-in kitchen at the back of the house is a comfortable place to gather and overlooks a delightful pollinator garden energized in the Summer by a display of butterflies and bees. A south-facing screened-in porch just off the kitchen is ideal for outdoor dining and a coveted place to retreat on a summer afternoon. An inviting path at the edge of the garden will take you to a wired and fully restored barn with a second floor loft that offers a blank canvas for creative inspiration. For the more adventurous at heart trails past the barn lead to an established apple orchard and through enchanted forest to two wildflower meadows, where imaginations can run wild. Hopkins Cottage has been the scene of many happy reunions and events. A number of the writers who come to the Port Medway Readers Festival have stayed there, including Margaret Atwood, Jane Urquhart, Wayne Johnston and Michael Ondaatje. The property is conveniently located within 15 minutes of several white sand beaches, and 20 minutes to Liverpool. (id:52813)
