Moving to a home with a pond ....

This might be a weird discussion, but i need some parenting advice. My husband and i are currently looking for a place to live, and we recently found a home we love. Unfortunately for me i hate the pond, and for my husband he loves the pond. Right now we only have one little boy he is 15 months old.
The pond is located maybe 50 feet from the house so it is close, and all i can think about is my son falling in there and drowning, or walking on the ice in the winter and falling in. I watch my son don't get me wrong, but it only take one second for something to go wrong. Should i revolve a lifetime decision based on a fear of something might happening one day? I know that it could be a really fun thing for my husband and son to do together, and i don't want to take that away, but i also don't want to be afraid everyday...
