Property description

While this secluded oceanfront chalet in West Pennant is just 25 minutes to the heart of Halifax, it feels like you're a million miles from any city. It's a very secluded old fishing village with lots of incredible outdoor experiences- canoeing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, etc.. The village has only a dozen homes, some of which are occupied only on a seasonal basis.

The newly constructed chalet is 1250 ft2 and has an open concept. It's hard to find a spot in the house without a magnificent view of the ocean- very few man made features in the view. The bow shaped house front is covered with south-facing windows. The downstairs has a small but full bathroom, a bedroom, a living room, dining room and full kitchen with granite counter tops, custom furniture, exotic hardwood floors, copper accents, wood stove and lots more.

The upstairs is completely open with a claw foot tub, double bed, open bathroom, and great empty loft/sun area that's ideal for yoga, napping, reading, drawing, etc..

If you're looking for privacy, peace of mind, and the ocean, this is the place for you. We've never had an unhappy visitor!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I'm a teacher at a couple of the local schools. I'm fortunate that my summers are free enough that I have opportunity to rent my home out during the summer and sometimes during the winter too.

Why the Owner Chose Halifax:
Love at first sight for me. I bought it a week after I first saw it.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
I contracted the building of the home. After it was taken to rooftight by the pros, my family and freinds gave me tons of help to complete the interior and the cedar shingles on the outside. Since then, I've added decks, paths, a little treehouse and a couple of small outbuildings.
