Halifax house description

As you pass along the private lane way and through the stone and iron gates of this gorgeous property, you are met with beautiful gardens, flowering fruit trees and manicured lawns. The circular drive will lead to the drive through covered front entry where barrier free access is provided to the magnificent foyer.
Inside this 2200 square foot executive home, gleaming hardwood and ceramic floors provide a clean, carpet free environment. Lush leather furnishings provide an inviting place to entertain or just relax and watch the large entertainment system. Enjoy the warm sunlight as it enters through the large glass areas and enjoy the panoramic views of the the lily covered pond. Relax, with the 3 sided gas fireplace warming the large, open concept living space. Create gourmet meals in the state of the art, cherry kitchen, or just sit back and relax with close friends and a glass of your favorite wine in the warm and inviting dining room.
The master bedroom provides a walkout to the large exterior terrace, but for romantic evenings, enjoy the fireplace from under the soft duvet on the 4 post bed. De stress in the jet tub found in the master en-suit or enjoy a movie on the TV over the fireplace. Large closets provide ample storage throughout the home.
Queen size beds await in the two remaining bedrooms which access the main 4 piece bath across the hall. The cathedral ceilings throughout the house, create an inviting feeling and provide natural cooling in the summer months.
The great room is large and open and also affords easy, barrier free access to the massive terrace. A half bath is located off the great room with a complete laundry and freezer area available in the west wing.
The 5000 square foot terrace is also accessed through the large, barrier free double doors in the kitchen. Escape from your busy day, while sitting in the amphitheater, watching the crackling wood fire in the granite and stainless steel fire center. Friends and family will savor the flavor of a pig roast turned slowly over the wood coals. The swing away grill will cook your steaks, burgers and fresh seafood to perfection and leave all who try these savory treats, asking for more. The movable boiling pot will make cooking the world famous Nova Scotian lobster easy and fun.
Enjoy the sun in the lounge chairs or cocktails under the shade umbrellas. Take a stroll through the gardens towards the 200 foot bridge as it spans the pink and yellow, lily filled pond. Stop midspan under the gazebo, where another fire pit awaits with seating for all to enjoy the view. Stroll through the cedar lined walkways on the west side of the pond and look back towards the beautiful gardens as the sun pours on the flowers and mature trees. A short walk will allow you to plunge into cool lakes, and refresh yourself in the clear, clean water.
Within15 minutes, one can arrive at the international airport or, in 20 minutes, be surrounded with world class restaurants, tall ships and festivals. The historic city of Halifax offers museums, galleries, shopping, theaters and much, much more. The friendly residents are known for their eastern hospitality and make all feel at home.
Travel 30 minutes west and arrive in the lush Annapolis Valley. Fertile lands produce tasty fruits and vegetables with scenery that will create wonderful memories. Witness the highest tides in the world, (in some areas, over 50 feet). Discover the winery's, vineyards and sample the award winning selections.
Discover some of the many sandy beaches, collect shells or surf the waves. Watch the massive whales surface in their quest for food on one of many whale watching tours available just a short distance from the residence. Dive beneath the surf and explore the underwater world that is home to interesting marine life as well as shipwrecks from days gone by.
Autumn brings cooler days and evenings but be prepared to be inspired by the striking colors found throughout the province. A carpet of red, orange yellow, green and gold await. Taste the harvest`s bounty and breath the fresh air. Explore and hike the many trails, canoe, kayak or sail the many waterways. Hunting and fishing is available with many species to satisfy one`s need of adventure.
Ski hills are located short distances away when winter`s snow brings another season to Nova Scotia. Ice skating, sledding and snowboarding provide hours of outdoor fun. Snowmobile trails cross the province, providing hours of fun and breathtaking views. Feel free to illuminate the 40,000 square foot pond and skate well into the evenings. The floors of the home are heated and will provide wonderful warmth during the chilly winter months.
Enjoy this property on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis, but be prepared, once you arrive, you may not want to leave.
