Purcells Cove Road Purcell's Cove, Nova Scotia B3P 2G4

Waterfront On Lake Acreage


Here's your opportunity to own a piece of the Purcell's Cove Backlands! This offering is for 3 Lots with a combined total of 17.4 acres of nature-lover's paradise. Enjoy views of Purcells Cove from high on top of the escarpment. A section of the property has water frontage on Purcells Pond (aka Tea Lake) which is the best spot for fresh water swimming. With its dark tea coloured water, it feels like you've been to a mineral spa. The Purcell's Pond ravine runs across the properties and is absolutely magical in all four seasons. Hiking and Mountain Biking trails run throughout the Backlands which encompass 1350 hectares including William's Lake and Colpitt Lake (officially designated as The Shaw Wilderness Park thanks to The Nature Conservancy of Canada), McIntosh Run, Purcell's Pond, East & West Pine Island Ponds, Power's Pond, and Herring Cove. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust also has protected areas of the Backlands and describes it as an urban wilderness which, "features uniquely diverse geographic features and habitats including scattered rugged granite coastal headlands, undeveloped freshwater shorelines contained within an undisturbed watershed, developing hardwood forests, bogs and granite barrens. In addition, these lands are home to a significant area of uncommon Jack Pine forest and rare plant life.". As an added bonus, once you've finished your stewardship, why not consider donating the land to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust who already own 3 adjacent properties that surround the remainder of Purcell's Pond? They'd love to give you a tax credit for thinking of them and the generations to follow, who would get to enjoy your gift, would be forever grateful, perhaps even inspiring a future Thoreau! To access the property, there is a 12 foot right-of-way (ROW) over the 2nd driveway of 2991 Purcell's Cove Rd (PCR). 2997 and 2991 PCR also have ROWs over the 2nd driveway. (id:40687)
