About 2957 Hwy#395

Look no further! Own your own shallow beach on Nova Scotia's on Lake Ainslie! This home sits on a spacious 3.9 acres with beautiful beach lake frontage. 2 bedrooms on the main floor and another in the walk-out lower level. There is an older cottage close to the lake. The house being near the road, a huge swath of lawns sweeps down to the lakeshore, with some large trees on the property. The house was built in 1971 and has been renovated and enlarged since then, primarily with the addition of the great room in 1999, with a whole wall of windows facing the lake. Measuring 26 x 50 the main floor has over 1500 sq ft of living space, around 1800 including the bathroom and large bedroom in the walk-out lower level, much of which has only been used for storage, with a garage (11 x 24) at one end. Polytech windows were installed in the 1990's and a metal tile roof in 2010. Inside there is hardwood flooring throughout the main level, and the large stone fireplace now has a propane insert. Other heat is from electric baseboards, 2 heat pumps, and a pellet stove in the lower level. There are also two A/C units. The land is in 4 parcels, totaling 3.9 acres. The lake frontage - 550 feet of it - is some of the nicest anywhere on the lake, with a sandy beach and some large trees hanging over it. One part that protrudes into the lake used to be a wharf and has large rocks scattered around. Wonderful views across the lake and of course - facing west - great sunsets.The cabin near the lake has two bedrooms, and was once part of a rental business, Trout River Cottages. Albeit dated, there is good short term rental or guest house potential; just needs a 'beach house' interior paint job and its 2 bedroom, 3 piece bath and kitchenette will be a treat for guests! It's a beautiful drive around Lake Ainslie. Starting out north you can get to Inverness and all its amenities, golf and beach in 20/25 minutes. 15/20 minutes in the other direction lies Whycocomagh and Trans Canada Highway.
