197 Lakewood Drive, Shortt's Lake Brookfield, NS SIGN # 14332


This 3 bedroom bungalow is situated on a large 1.3 acre lot on Shortt's Lake. It is one of the larger house/building lots on Shortt's Lake. An oversize, 2-tiered deck and beautiful south facing lot brings in summer's gentle breezes and lots of warm sunshine. It is a year round home or just to be enjoyed as a Cottage. It is a well constructed, well maintained lake house on a concrete slab with a paved driveway, garden shed, double car garage, drilled well for domestic water, complete septic system, air conditioning and lake frontage galore! This waterfront property will allow you to enjoy the Lake's four seasons. The lake house is nestled in a quiet cove offering plenty of privacy (where the loons nest). The large, two tiered deck also features a pergola. There is quick Lake access from the private cove where you can participate in boating, sailing or other watersport activities.

Shortt's Lake is known for its social summertime nightlife, and active waterfront days as well as peaceful and serene activities like fishing, and kayaking, not mention winter fun with cross country skiing, snowshoeing and skating. The large lakefront lot will allow for great family activities while providing for easy supervision from the deck or kitchen whether in winter or summer!

Just as lovely as the setting, the home shows like new with the perfect layout for casual living and lakeshore entertaining. The central great room has vaulted ceilings with the view of the lake as the focal point, The main living area has a corner woodstove for added ambiance during chilly evenings. The in-floor, radiant heat provides for consistent warmth throughout the year. The heatpump offers alternative heating in the winter months and air conditioning during the summer months. Most Maritimers like a spacious kitchen for social gatherings and entertaining, and this one offers plenty of storage space, countertop with solid wood cabinetry and built in appliances which are all included. It has a casual dining area overlooking the lake. A powder room and laundry area are located near the garage/side entry.

Three good sized bedrooms are available including the larger master which features a cheater door to the spacious main bath which has a jet tub and walk in shower. No worries with storage, the double car garage and garden shed can hide it all!

The stunning south facing lot lets the sunshine in. It comes complete with a removable, "L" shaped aluminum dock with cedar decking for easy boat access. A 22' pontoon boat and 20' Sea Doo speed (jet) boat resided on this dock in previous years so boating access is not an issue. This property is move in ready, with domestic well water and hook-up for lakewater for external use if desired, approved septic system, mature treed lot, lots of privacy, paved driveway, and a choice of heating system.

The only thing missing is you and your family! Start your new life at the Lake today...you won't regret it! 15 minutes to Truro, 30 minutes to Stanfield International Airport and 45 minutes to Halifax.
