You'll love this unique home, which was created in two stages. The original section was built in the late 1980s for a professional couple to be used as their summer home. They loved it so much that after retirement they hired a well known home designer and master carpenter to add a huge addition. This became their permanent residence. In June 1998, the completed project made the front page of the local newspaper, titled "Renovated for Retirement".

Looking at the exterior of the home, one understands quickly that it's unique, interesting and has lots of character. The multi levels rising from the hillside appear to be part of the landscape. The home is distinctive but does not overpower the beauty of the natural surroundings. The main entrance defines how the interior spaces have been created. The entry provides access to the main living areas, a private master suite, a large pantry, the lower level and the backyard. The windows are an European style tilt and turn and those across the front have shutter-type blinds that can be controlled by an interior mechanism. This is first observed when entering the livingroom. It's a sunny room with wood floor and a woodstove. At the far end is the diningroom. It has a bay window looking out towards the water. The kitchen is extremely functional and attractive. It has a U-shaped design with corner windows and a peninsula at the end of the counter makes an ideal breakfast nook and great buffet area when entertaining.

Near the kitchen is a 2 piece bathroom and huge pantry with laundry area, ironing area, sink, second fridge and a deep freeze. Down a short hall is the access to the rear gardens, stairs to the lower level and the master bedroom suite. The master bedroom, 15.10 x 15.4 and has a spacious walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom complete with whirlpool tub, separate shower and a sauna. Upstairs, there are two huge bedrooms, with a family room in between, a walk-in cedar closet and another full bath. Off the largest bedroom is access to a roof-top deck overlooking the ocean.

There's a full concrete basement under the home which includes a double car garage, wide open space for hobbies, exercise or storage. There's also a purpose-built coldroom and a separate room under the diningroom used for storage for outdoor furniture.

Systems include septic, drilled well, woodstove, Lifebreath heat recovery ventilator system, automatic garage doors, 200 amp electrical and electric heating. There's also a "wood waiter" for moving firewood up from the basement to the main level. The home offers about 2,300 square feet of comfortable living space with lots of windows, lots of angles and interesting built-in features.

The exterior is finished with wood siding, stained gray which complement its natural setting. The property is also stunning. It boasts 3.8 acres of forest, nicely elevated and ideally situated across the road from the ocean and just 1.2 km to the popular Bayswater Beach. Hubbards and Chester are within 20 minutes and the City of Halifax is an easy 40 minutes drive.
