279 Fox Ranch Road, East Amherst, NS (MLS® 202303060): Chalet Style post and beam Lindal Cedar home sitting on a manicured 7+acre lot just outside the town of Amherst. This mansion has been updated recently including windows, roofing and siding. The deck also recently replaced with glass railings and goliath screw pile foundations which allows you to overlook almost the entire acreage. The land consists of a variety of trees, a pond with small stream and a tennis court. The soil here is excellent for anyone who'd like to start a hobby farm or series of gardens (greenhouse and rose garden included). The land looks almost like a golf course. Speaking of golf, the Amherst Golf course is within walking distance of this home. Entering from the deck you are welcomed by an enormous open concept eat-in kitchen which was installed with said recent renovations. Stunning white cabinetry and fantastic countertops along with bench seating this kitchen was over 75,000 to build. To the left of the kitchen is the living room with the vast array of windows. What a place to relax and enjoy the view! Upstairs three very spacious bedrooms with natural light and a full bath. The primary bedroom has a seating area, ensuite and walk in closet. Downstairs a fully finished recroom, full bath and bedroom await along with space currently being used as a gym. This area could easily be turned into an apartment or an airbnb for golfers. Worried about heating? This place is heated (and cooled!) by a closed loop geothermal furnace. This property also includes a hot tub and gated parking area for your trailer and toys! The land may also hold some extra value for lot subdivision. The possibilities are endless!
