Chester house description
*Renovated and mostly updated throughout. Three bedrooms each with original wood floors or antique oil cloth, new quilts and decor. Very country. 2.0 baths.
*The home is located in the Village of Chester near restaurants, shops, convenience store, pub and french bakery. Only 2 blocks from Front Harbor and Chester Yacht Club; one block from a public lido pool with life guard, Freida's Beach (a public beach), and parade grounds with gazebo where bands play on Sunday nights and market is held on Friday afternoons.
*Enjoy the charm of Chester's oldest 'farmhouse' with granite stone foundations, wide plank pine floors and for those who love to cook a six burner three oven AGA stove.
* Children will enjoy Lordly Park, a new state of the art playground with horseshoes nearby.
*The skateboard park is stunning.
* The Chester Golf Club is a public 18 hole golf course located in town that has spectacular views of the water and by many accounts is more beautiful than Pebble Beach.
* There are also many farms with-in a 1 hour drive of the Village that offer U-Pick berry picking and the Tancook Ferry located 3 blocks away is a wonderful way to experience Nova Scotia ambience. Explore Mahone Bay and Lunenburg and enjoy fresh maritime lobster, seafood and hospitality!
Charming old 'farmhouse' with 1/2 acre of lawn and gardens located one block to park with children's playground, two blocks to lido pool and front harbour and shops.

Evening BBQs under the stars
Evening BBQs under the stars
The best feature of this place is its yard. The photos do not do it justice. The lawn wraps around the house and is divided with a wonderful large deck. Sitting out there in the evening watching the kids play while the stars come into view is pretty special. Bring some mosquito spray, then just sit back and enjoy. The house is still a work in progress but the work is obviously a labour of love. Kitchen and dining room are well done and a pleasure to be in. The living room is a bit small ( as was the style when it was built) but comfortable. Upstairs there is still some work being done, but the bedrooms are fine and the beds very comfortable. The overall feel is very much 'cottage in the country' and with the great summer weather and greenery all around my Italian wife thought the house and the Chester area was exactly what Canada should look like. We stayed with our two young kids and took full advantage of the yard and the nearby playground and pool. It is a short (but hilly) walk to the waterfront or the main street (great coffee and breakfast at the Kiwi Cafe!) and a very very short drive to the local grocery store. The neighbors are friendly, the town is beautiful and the region is wonderful. The owners are great and kept in contact with us throught our stay to answer and questions we had. The upstairs bathroom needs to be finished and the steps to the back door and deck should be expanded a bit, but overall we would highly reccomend the place and would happily stay again.

About the owner: Bob and I love old charming homes and the lure of the beautiful village of Chester made it love at first sight. We love to get up in the morning, listen to the birds and stroll through town. Breakfast at the Kiwi is a special treat and we enjoy eating at ALL of the restaurants, playing golf and taking in the local Chester Theater which is top notch!
Why the Owner Chose Chester:
We love the South Shore! Chester, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay are our favorite haunts for exploring, antiquing, shopping, etc. but we chose Chester because of its quaintness, elegance, beauty, limited crowds and tourists and last but not least fine dining!. It is a great place to retire which is our goal! It doesn't hurt that it is near Halifax where we grew up!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, space, beauty, wonderful walks and close promixity to everything town has to offer.
