Property description

Our house is located on a small cove in a quiet fishing village and is a perfect spot for two couples or family to relax or explore all Nova Scotia has to offer.
30 minutes drive in one direction is Halifax with it's great restaurants, pubs, historic sites, museums, festivals and shopping. 25 minutes in the other direction is Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.
If you prefer a slower pace, stick around the house. Sit and stare at the ocean from the sitting room or head out to the boardwalk with coffee in hand. The boardwalk is also great place for afternoon 'walk'tails. A little farther afield, at the end of the road (7 minute walk) is a white sandy beach for sitting and swimming. A few minutes farther along is the Sandy Cove lighthouse. Continue walking along the coast over the 'moors' and you'll find yourself in Lower Prospect, yet another picturesque fishing village.
If you'd like to stay local, visit East Coast Outfitters in Lower Prospect where our guests who stay for one week or more receive a complimentary sunset guided sea kayak paddle or 1/2 price kayak rentals.

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Sandy Cove is our happy place. When we're not there we're planning our next trip back.

Why Halifax:
When I lived in Nova Scotia years ago I fell in love with the Terence Bay/ Lower Prospect area. The land, the scenery, the people, it's a wonderful place. While I was there, and since moving away, I continued to look for an opportunity to purchase a house. This house met all the requirements and so.....here it is. It's now the place where Kimberly and I want to be.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
For me it's morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the boardwalk and mowing the lawn. For Kimberly it's picking berries for breakfast, stretching on the boardwalk and gardening.
