You will feel at home as soon as you walk through the doors of this stylish Nova Scotia vacation home. Views of St. Margaret’s Bay can be enjoyed from the entire length of this well-appointed, 3700 sq ft. house. Wander across the large yard to the stone path leading down to the “perch”. Here you can sit and enjoy an elevated and wide open view of St. Margaret’s Bay with its many islands and ever-changing waters. Although this is not a property you can swim from, there is a sandy beach within a five minute walk from the house.
The main floor features a family room with vaulted ceiling and large glass doors leading to the veranda. The plush furnishings and large flat screen TV make for a great place to kick back and relax. An open-concept kitchen adjoins the family and living rooms. It is a modern, well-designed kitchen and has everything you will need to cook up a feast; including new stainless steel appliances, wine fridge and all the necessary tools. The elegant dining room / living room enjoy the garden and ocean views as well. Or have a more casual meal in the attached sunroom.
On the main floor you will also fine three bedrooms; one cozy bedroom with a daybed and a computer desk, the other is geared towards a baby, complete with cot, rocking chair and changing table. The large master bedroom features a luxurious 4-piece ensuite bathroom with a claw-foot slipper tub and a separate glass shower stall.
Downstairs, on the lower level, are two additional bedrooms – both with queen sized beds and plenty of closet space. Both bedrooms open on to the recreation room, which features a pool table, bar and entertainment area. Sit back on the L-shaped couch and watch a movie, in surround-sound on the large wall-mounted flat screen TV. Or workout in the home gym; with a treadmill, elliptical machine, bowflex and hand weights, there is something for everyone. Watch an exercise video on the wall-mounted TV for a complete workout experience.
A stone patio follows the length of the back of the house, which is set up with a gas barbeque and a dining table with seating for six. A perfect place to enjoy the sunset in style and comfort!
