Shorewood House is a stately four bedroom home, built at the time of Canada's Confederation (1867) by a prominent local shipwright. Its spacious rooms and elegant design reflects the optimism of Shelburne's shipbuilding era. Located at the entrance to the Historic District, this beautiful vacation home is walking distance to the finest restaurants, the Yacht Club, the Osprey Arts Centre Club, the farmers market, and the renowned Shelburne Museum Complex.
Light, bright, airy and spacious, Shorewood House has an elegant, yet comfortable, atmosphere. Beautifully restored and tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of antique furnishings and carefully chosen nautical mementos, Shorewood House is a delightful Nova Scotia vacation home that showcases the various travels of its sailing owners. It is impossible not to feel the "good vibes" emanating from this charming property.
Offering much more than a cottage; the ground floor features a large elegantly furnished living room with Apple Internet TV, an adjoining covered veranda, a spacious formal dining room, a 2 piece powder room with laundry facilities and a large modern eat-in kitchen with French doors leading out to an expansive deck with propane BBQ.
Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms - two with double beds and the other with a queen size bed. There is also a four piece bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a computer centre with high speed broadband wi-fi, and the 'Captain's study' with a single pine bed and cool vintage global memorabilia.
The expansive grounds are shaded by mature indigenous trees including Cherry, Black Locust, Maple and White Ash. Comfortable lawn chairs are everywhere so you can relax and enjoy the comings and goings of the waterfront or watch the migratory birds who also call this "home".
So grab your suitcases and head for the coast. You won't be sorry you chose Shorewood House for your Nova Scotia vacation!
