147 acres shorefront lot for sale. A gently sloping 300 foot gravel driveway leads from the end of Benham’s road to a unique picturesque shorefront property in Shelburne, Nova Scotia with 1200 feet of outstanding expansive views of Jordan Bay and the open Atlantic. This land fully faces the West so the sunsets are breathtaking. Electricity, telephone and internet lead to the house lot area and could easily be reconnected by contacting Nova Scotia Power, Bell Aliant and or Eastlink. Halfway up the driveway is a hand dug well which provided a family of 5 with clean gravity fed running water year round.
At the foot of the driveway is a parking area for several vehicles and towards the sea there is a clearing that would be ideal for building a seaside dream house or hooking up a mobile home. Further to the south but still within the property bounds is an abandoned A-frame cottage which could be fixed up to serve as temporary lodgings.
Due to the slope and position on the East side of Jordan Bay, the shoreline here has barely changed in the past 50 years. After all this time the old familiar features are still as they were when I was a boy. King Neptune’s Throne sits right at the ocean’s edge – a naturally formed chair that is contoured for amazing comfort. Once seated in this one-of-a-kind outcropping that took countless ages to construct, you realize the blissful privacy of the location, and it’s rugged natural beauty.
Another feature is what I call our mini Rock of Gibraltar – a large outcropping of stone that stands out boldy on our shoreline. The panoramic view on top will make you dizzy with joy.
Both of these structures are contained within this 147 acre lot.
Can you imagine a place where there are no disruptive noises – where there is just the natural sounds of the waves and wind and seagulls and wildlife – a sanctuary of pristine privacy. This is it! My family lived there self-sufficiently for most of the past 5 decades. My uncle turned the forested ground into fertile soil for an ample vegetable garden with tall telephone peas rising 10 feet in the air. Carrots, asparagus, eelgrass potatoes, beans, brussel sprouts, broccoli, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, strawberries – all proudly came out of this garden, feeding our family Spring Summer and Fall. The soil has been naturally fertilized and tilled and weeded over the years and could well be put to good use again. The plant hardiness zone of this area is 6b – rivaling that of the farmlands of southern Ontario.
The area outside of the house lot garden area and road is forested with mostly spruce and and some maple, fir, birch, and tamarack. Pines are rare but a few are there. Towards the back of the lot there are more hardwoods and spruce.
