Vacation by the sea and experience the unique charms of this Nova Scotia cottage. Warm and inviting, this delightful holiday home sits in a large garden high on an ocean bluff and enjoys a spectacular panoramic view of the Atlantic.
Red head retreat is a newly renovated century home with a central staircase that divides the open plan living room, dining room and kitchen. The house has been beautifully restored with honey-colored hardwood floors; wood trim and neutral paint colors. There is nothing to distract you from that marvelous view!
Simply furnished and decorated, this house has everything you need in a vacation cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped with an under counter fridge, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and kettle. The house is fully wired for internet. There is a flat screen TV and Wii game console in the living room. Board games and cards are available for family time around the dining room table.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms all with ocean views. The master bedroom has a king size bed while the two other bedrooms have twin beds. There is a 4 piece bathroom and a stacking washer and dryer on the ground floor.
A large deck runs along the back of the house and from there you can enjoy a fabulous unobstructed view of the Atlantic ocean. It is the perfect spot to while away an afternoon watching birds flying overhead and boats passing by. It’s hard not to relax in the company of such delightful natural scenery: blue skies, shimmering sea and fresh ocean breezes.
Set back about 100 meters from the shore line, the garden is safe for little ones and pets to play. The lawn ends at a 20 foot high bluff that is too steep to scramble down. But it is easy to get to the beach by following the garden as it naturally slopes down to the shore line. Once on the shore it is possible to walk for miles in either direction. A westerly heading will take you around a headland and onto the beautiful deserted white sands of red head beach.
So pack your bags and head over to red head retreat for a restful respite from daily living!
