This architectural landmark rests on a beautiful coastal headland and offers panoramic vistas onto ocean waves, distant cliffs, hills dotted with farmhouses, and ponds bounded by spruce trees.
Reclining on a hillside, Sliding House is a spectacular retreat from the workaday world.The serenity of this 1700 sq-ft residence, with its warm floor-to-ceiling poplar wood interior, delivers comfort with great style.
A very private 2-acre property, it is located only 15 minutes away from Lunenburg (a UNESCO World Heritage Town) and a 1.5 hour drive from Halifax International Airport.Striking in its simplicity, the cool modern exterior opens up to a dramatic double-height main floor living area designed and optimized for its views. A bank of windows spans the length of the entire building, framing a maritime masterpiece of ocean and sky.
Beyond the kitchen area, the living room features an inset wood-burning fireplace and leads to an enclosed skylight deck. A generous-sized master bedroom, bath and desk complete the upper floor. On the lowest level is a separate bedroom and laundry room.
Whenever possible, the furnishings were made locally or sourced in Canada, and designed with natural materials. Sliding House has been featured in the Italian design magazine Interni, the Dutch magazine Villas, and most recently in the book Narrow Houses, selected by Avi Friedman.
Kingsburg is a picturesque seaside village blessed by nature. The crashing surf, spectacular white sandy beaches, nature trails and abundance of wildlife are right out the front door.
This is also a convenient location for groceries, shopping, antiques, artisans, crafts, farmers markets, historic churches and museums, biking, charter boat sailing, kayak and canoe rentals, golfing, fine dining and casual restaurants. A summer paradise.
