Just click on the photos above to see more pictures and information on this property. 

Port George, even the name sounds relaxing.

A recent CBC show suggested living on the water may reduce stress

and add years to a person’s life. I suppose this can be true if you like

the smell of salt air, the feel of a stiff breeze across your terrace, seabirds,

white caps, beachcombing, bonfires, the occasional whale, seals, fog, sun,

rain, fishing boats, blue, blue sky, sunsets, sunrises . . . and quiet.

This Port George property has all of these features plus a gorgeous

all on one level contemporary home. One of the best features of the property

is the solid concrete retaining wall along the shore.

This provides protection from the water and surf.

Lots of fun at low tide to explore!

Offered at $239,000.
