244 OAKFIELD PARK ROAD, OAKFIELD - Timeless!! Sitting on the original site of Oakfield Estates, this 6.9 Acre property will truly wow even the most discerning of Buyers. Anyone can build a home with bricks and mortar but few properties will give you the lure of days gone by with gorgeous grounds, and one of the finest lakefronts in Nova Scotia, Canada. This Acreage was first settled after the Crimean War, by LCol John Laurie in 1866, when he acquired 3000 Acres of woodland at Grand Lake. He later brought settlers from Devonshire, England to establish the Estate of Oakfield. With 249’ along Grand Lake, there is ample lake access for exploring with an option to purchase the additional 5.1 Acre lot with a century multi-level Barn, boathouse and outbuildings. As you wander the manicured grounds of this 5 bedroom, 5-bath estate you can hear the voices and sounds from the last century yet you will marvel at the pristine lakefront, and the wonderful home nestled privately amongst the trees, and the tennis court. Once you enter the main house, you will be delighted by the many modern conveniences and touches that allow for the intricate mixture of old and new. An impressive property that is steeped in history, and utterly unique!
Here you'll find mature neighbourhoods in close proximity to the Halifax International Airport. Many properties are on larger treed lots with a variety of lakes on the old Shubie Canal system. Good schools, quiet neighbourhoods and easy access to Halifax, Dartmouth or Bedford make this an ideal location for a mix of city and country living.
