Turners Island Marie Joseph, Nova Scotia B0J 2G0

3 Bedroom 1 Bathroom
Waterfront On Ocean Acreage Partially Landscaped


Do not miss this opportunity of a lifetime to own a private island on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia! This 110 acre island is located off of Marie Joseph & is a 10min boat ride from the Government Wharf. Turners Island was once known as Hawbolt Island & home to two settlements: one on the mainland side & the other facing south on the back side with shallow dug wells & old stone foundations still remaining. Additional features of this oasis would be the sheltered cove between this island & Goose island and is often used by sail boats taking refuge for the night, this side also houses the island?s wharf and a calm bay. The wharf was built on an existing rock pile that looks to be remains from an old wharf, the beams are pressure treated for saltwater and there are two extras to extend another 16ft (some wharf boards will require replacing). Walk up the path to find a lovely post and beam 21x25 cabin in the clearing; inside you will find a very charming rustic open great room and upstairs another open room for further development. Outside is a 10x21 lean-to that houses the tractor, and you will also find on the property a sawmill and outside privy. This could be a great opportunity for an eco-tourism business as this sale also includes two homes on the mainland (civic # 1609 & 1613) just across from the Government Wharf. Number 1609 has been partially refinished from the top down with 3 spacious renovated bedrooms, the main floor will require finishing to a new owner's tastes but the home is livable as it is. The other home located at 1613 will need the most work but has great bones and character to be another beautiful seaside home. Build a business of kayaking tours to the island for nightly getaways or sell the mainland homes and enjoy the island; the choice is up to you. Most furniture to stay with properties but there is a list of items to be negotiated, ask your agent for details. Be sure to book your appointment to view and begin living your East Coast Dream!
