Located in North Riverside – a lightly settled rural community situated along the shores of the scenic Milford Haven River – is this lovely 2.85 acre parcel of land, ideal for vacationing, rural year-round living and land investment. Lot 8 features 250 feet of road front on the westerly side of Old Monastery Road and has an average depth of almost 500 feet. You have plenty of privacy and room to develop the land to your liking.

A recent tree harvest of mature to over-mature white spruce and balsam fir (and some hardwood firewood), was completed Winter of 2018 / 2019. The land is largely cleared throughout (see pictures) and ready for further improvements such as driveway, silviculture, replanting and landscaping. Left alone, we anticipate strong and healthy regeneration of native tree varieties to the area.

Topography of the land is more or less level, the northwest property corner being the highest elevation at approximately 170 feet above sea level. We have found a small freshwater spring on the lot which appears to produce a good steady flow of water in July.

The land has been surveyed and the property boundary lines are clearly marked. There are no restrictive covenants or requirements to develop your land within a specific time frame making this an attractive long-term land holding with low ownership costs and no obligations. Annual property taxes are currently CAD-$110- per year.

The friendly local residents and seasonal visitors will make you feel right at home. 

The Milford Haven which runs out to Guysborough Harbour and Chedabucto Bay (Atlantic Ocean) makes for great opportunities for family fun and adventure on the water - boating, swimming, fishing.
