1178 Ketch Harbour Road, Ketch Harbour, NS (MLS® 202405979): If you've been looking for an exceptional home in a friendly seaside community, "away from it all" yet just a short commute to the city, this is it! This thoughtfully designed, attractively finished, custom built home, in the seaside community of Ketch Harbour, is simply stunning. Just 6 years old, it offers a fabulous layout and a sunny, private setting. As you enter the home, the cloak room at the main entry handles all of the coats and footwear. The kitchen features a gas range, lots of counter space, and a fabulous walk-in pantry. A breakfast bar with pendant lights opens to the dining area. The adjacent living room is bathed in natural light, from the large windows and patio doors overlooking the landscaped yard. A full bath completes this level. Hardwood floors and stairs, and the custom trim, add warmth. A side staircase leads to the bedroom level. The large primary bedroom has high ceilings, custom storage units, and a wall of windows offering harbor views, and the occasional cruise ship in the distance. There is an adjacent main bath, with soaker tub and shower. A second bedroom completes this level. The basement level has lots of natural light, and features a rec room with Murphy Bed, a large bedroom, half bath, utility room, and outside entrance. The exterior boasts a large sunny rear deck overlooking the yard, pond, raised garden beds, and a fire pit area. The home has a metal roof, is wired to be solar ready, and is energy efficient with 2 heat pump heads. Other features include a generator panel, a woodstove downstairs for supplementary heating, custom drapery, and storage units in many rooms. The 16x 24 detached garage has an underground service and 60 amp panel, ready to be transformed into a workshop, plus there are two sheds. Ketch Harbour is a friendly community and offers public wharf (with ice cream stand coming soon!), boat launch, and community center with regular social activities.
