Interested in an immediate development opportunity? Perhaps you are looking for the ultimate private parcel with it’s own lake that serves as a launch point into a Wilderness Protected Area (containing 11,437 acres and over 27 lakes). This unique 144 acre parcel located in Brookside, HRM, Nova Scotia, is on the market for the first time, up to this point having been held within one family and passed down through the generations since the original Crown Grants of the early 1800s. Comprised of two separate but adjacent and contiguous blocks - a 100 acre block taking in almost the entirety of Secret Lake’s shoreline and a 44 acre block with direct access by paved road through Yeaholm Way, McGrath Lake Estates, Brookside, Nova Scotia, an established development (2005). Of interest to developers/investors with a near term horizon, the 44 acre block has in place concept approval granted by HRM for 22 lots. The 100 acre Secret Lake block has been surveyed and professionally assessed as having a minimum yield of 38 lots, of which 8 are waterfront lots. This property offers a total wilderness experience with ready access to the full range of urban conveniences - schools, medical clinic, pharmacy, community recreational center and shopping centres.
