L&S #1219. Visit Realtor.ca for virtual tour! Escape to the country - without ever leaving the city! Finntigh Mara is a rare 3.3 acre waterfront estate on the Northwest Arm. Serviced by municipal water & sewer with access from both Kirk Rd and McManus Rd, the property comprises a romantic 1914 Arts & Crafts residence with separate attached home (The Annex) built in the 1960s, in-ground saltwater pool plus Pool House (c 1860), Gate Keepers House, the Roost, detached garage, boathouse and more. Evoking the nostalgia from a bygone era, the grounds are gorgeous with stone walls, meandering paths, beautiful mature trees and shrubs and an indescribable feeling of peacefulness. A private tree-lined circular drive leads past the Gate House to the main residence which overlooks gardens and the pool, which is flanked by the Pool House on one side and the Roost on the other. From the pool, the lands slope gently to the 168 feet of ocean front with small boathouse and wharf potential. Some upgrades have taken place in the Arts & Craft/Annex homes however still some finishing required with loads of ability to personalize and make these homes your own. Gate Keepers house and Pool House (with some renovations) would be ideal rentals - or private spaces for guests and extended family. Its a magical property and a once in a lifetime opportunity to own the last intact private estate on the Northwest Arm. A stroll to Sir Sandford Fleming Park, the Frog Pond and the Dingle, minutes to the Armdale Yacht Club and the Royal NS Yacht Squadron, and just 10 minutes to downtown Halifax. Floorplans and survey under documents tab. Note: MLA/TLA does not include 2nd floor eave space and does include lower level workshop. One bedroom may not meet egress requirements. (id:39336)
