What you will love about this home

Salt & Spruce is a cozy, bright, and mildly eccentric house on Kul'pijuik (Petpeswick inlet), on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. It's pretty peaceful too: at the end of a long lane, tucked into the wild and rugged coastal forest, peering out over the water. Short trails lead down to the shore in various places, where one might find a smooth rock to sit on and ponder or chat with a pal. Lots of wildlife, mostly seabirds and deer and hares. In the summer there are so many wild roses, the yard smells like a perfume shop (in a good way). Mixed with the smells of salt water and spruce trees, of course. The house is open concept, great for a family or a small group of friends. Style is mid century/vintage/eclectic/Ikea and plants. Two bedrooms one bathroom upstairs, one bedroom (Murphy bed) one bathroom downstairs. Dining table extends to seat 6 comfortably. Large outdoor patio/deck. Lots of toys/games for kids. For outdoor fun there is a canoe, kayak, paddleboard, two firepits, hammocks, and some lawn games. If you want to swim, wear water shoes - there are a lot of shells on the bottom! PS - it's called Salt & Spruce because the air is salty and the forest is sprucey.

What you will love about this neighborhood

West Petpeswick is a rural area, approximately 30 minutes drive from urban Halifax. There is NO public transit here so a vehicle is essential! The neighbourhood has a coastal/cottage life/woodsy vibe. We have neighbours that share the laneway, otherwise there aren't many houses nearby. The eastern shore has so many options for outdoor activities! Kayaking? Out the back door. Cycling? Musquodoboit trailway, 6km away. Hiking? Same trailway and associated wilderness area, trails up to 40 km through mixed forests with lovely views. Surfing/beach time? Martinique beach, the longest beach in Nova Scotia, is a 15 minute drive. And plenty more options if you're up for a longer drive. Food/drink/amenities: We are fortunate to have a fantastic farm-to-table restaurant just down the road! (Lupin dining). They also have a lovely "pantry" stocked with quick meals/ingredients for home. The nearest town is Musquodoboit Harbour, which is about 5km away. It's small but mighty: cafe/farmers market (Uprooted), bakery, two restaurants, microbrewery, beer garden (seasonal), hardware store, pharmacy, library, gas station, hospital. Additional amenities available 15 minutes away in Porters Lake. We are happy to provide additional information about the area, please just ask!
