There have been outstanding restorations of older homes over the years but few top this one. In fact it won an honourable mention in the prestigious “Canadian House and Home Design” Magazine a few years back. Beautifully positioned to maximize ocean views and sunsets it is the quintessential all seasons Maritime Home. The family sunroom with cathedral wood ceiling sets the tone for the whole house. Natural light pervades. The large open kitchen is a chef’s delight and likely to be the gathering spot for guests, especially when a warm fire is crackling in the Jotul wood stove. The dining room and living room offer more views of the neighbourhood and the ocean. Hardwood and softwood floors are enhanced here and there by unique and rare painted canvas coverings stenciled with a floral pattern. The main floor 4 pc. bath is modern but still in character with the house as is the office (with high speed internet). Upstairs are no less than five brightly lit bedrooms of generous proportions - all with a pleasant view - and a huge 4 pc. bath that includes an old fashioned tub and walk-in glass enclosed shower. The sun splashed dormer is an irresistible place to curl up with a good novel. Don’t let the amazing character of this place fool you. This is a year round residence with modern heating, plumbing and electrical upgrades. There are four outbuildings including an 18 ft. X 32 ft. garage /workshop (with recent new metal roof), two other garden sheds and a storage shed. The Owners talk fondly of their neighbours who have always "been there” for them. Beautiful Oxner’s Beach is but a few hundred yards away and Lunenburg less than 20 minutes. Five Houses is a small gathering of homes (more than five) just off the main Riverport highway. The public road ends just past this property so there is very little traffic. The complete “Maritime Package" of quiet privacy, ocean air and wonderful neighbours awaits you. Come in and put your feet up.More details

Some tree clearing has been done to open up the view of Shaw Island, the Chester Peninsula and the open ocean. Access is by way of Borgel's Point Road from Chester Basin and then to Borgel’s Drive. Chester is a short drive away and Halifax about 40 minutes. There is a recent survey on file.More details
