Meticulously built, with all the bells and whistles, this new custom Oakland home by E.P. Sharp Const, minutes outside Mahone Bay, offers all the space a family needs and more. The open concept living/dining/kitchen area with 9' ceilings and filled with natural light. This is a wonderful, inviting area and just right for all to gather. The propane fireplace, with library shelves and custom walnut mantle, anchors the room. The living room opens to a spacious, partially covered, 1,100 sq. ft., wrap-around cedar deck. The eat-in kitchen has a huge island and oodles of counter and storage including a traditional Lunenburg County pantry - all with high end appliances. The big surprise will be the welcoming laundry room. Also located on the main floor, the primary bedroom, dressing room and ensuite complete all the conveniences of living on one level. Two bedrooms with custom bunks along with room to spare, a full bath and a family room are located on the 2nd level. Lots of options for study/office/project areas - popular these days. A games/media room with space for an exercise area, located on the lower level, ensure that there is room for everyone to spread out. A large storage area for all your seasonal gear helps keep things organized, along with an immaculate double attached garage. All this and more on a peaceful, 2.5 acre lot on a private lane. Stroll up the lane to Oakland Lake and the Dynamite Trail or down the lane, cross the road and slip one's kayak into the Cove, with one's deeded access to the ocean. Or rent a mooring at the nearby Mahone Bay Civic Marina. Oakland is a seaside rural community, close to Secret Beach at Andrews Cove and all the amenities of the Town of Mahone Bay with its scenic Harbour, boating, cafes/restaurants, artisan shops, Mahone Bay Centre (fitness/cultural programs etc), 15 minutes to the UNESCO Town of Lunenburg, famous for the Bluenose schooner, and just over an hour to Halifax, on Nova Scotia's treasured South Shore.
