I just finished uploading this Residential-Oceanfront for sale, 7002 & 7004 Highway 16, Halfway Cove, Guysborough County, NS

Would you like to own your own bit of beautiful Nova Scotia? Here is your chance. We have a very attractive property in Halfway Cove, on Marine Drive (Hwy 16) just 12 minutes from the town of Guysborough. In total it comprises 6.41 acres, with 320 feet of Chedabucto Bay shoreline. In the past, the building has served as the neighbourhood post office, general store, and car repair in addition to being a residence. While it has been empty for the past few years, with some sweat equity you can put in your own finishing touches to get it comfortable again. The great Stan Rogers used to live across the road and often played at Friday night kitchen parties in the house. The building is right beside the road, so winter snow clearing is a breeze. It has a good view of Chedabucto Bay that could be even better with some judicious clearing. Alternatively, it can be used as temporary accommodation or storage while you build your dream house closer to the water. The land itself is absolutely stunning. The open space closer to the water would be a perfect setting for your retirement or vacation home. At the water half is beach with road access for putting your boat in, while the other half of the shoreline is filled with picturesque rock formations only mirrored by the North African area they were torn from millennia ago. A vintage post and beam fishing shack has been restored for day visits overlooking the water, with a cozy wood stove and many windows to enjoy the scenery. The topography is superb. The shoreline is stunning, with a mix of beach and rock. Water runs crystal clear. There is a cranberry bog running down the east side. Lobster and sea horses inhabit the water just off shore. It has a little bit of everything.
