Shelburne house description

A Blue House is nestled on ten secluded acres of oceanfront on a quiet sandy beach in Louis Head, Nova Scotia. Watch the sun and moon rise from the Atlantic and relax to sounds of the waves gently lapping at the beach. A large pond with an island adds to the natural setting of the property.

A Blue House embodies traditional Nova Scotia architecture that is over 150 years old. It is completely renovated to include a large great room and kitchen finished in pine woodwork.

More than a cottage, this large, 2,100 sq. ft. home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and comes fully furnished and equipped. A Blue House has been awarded a four (out of a possible five) star rating as a Canada Select Accommodation by the Board of Tourism.

          Louis Head is a picturesque community on the Atlantic Ocean, with golden sand and abundant wildlife. It is one hour from Yarmouth and two hours from Halifax on the South Shore's Lighthouse Route.

          It offers a peaceful and secluded setting with a spectacular natural environment. The beach is over two miles long, making it a wonderful spot for families. It is ideal for anyone wanting peace and quiet in an oceanfront setting. The beach and protected cove also make it an ideal launching area for kayakers and canoeists.

          The area is perfect for swimming, beach combing, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, and bird watching.

          Fine dining and tourist attractions can be found in nearby Lockeport, Shelburne, and Liverpool.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1996

          About the owner: We fell in love with Louis Head and its beautiful natural surroundings when we stayed at A Blue House when it was a B&B. We built our home nearby, and purchased and lovingly restored A Blue House in 1996 with updating last summer. We love the sandy beach, the community, the peacefulness, and the outdoor activities. Our children have grown up here and are now teenagers.

          Why the Owner Chose Shelburne:
          A Blue House embodies traditional Nova Scotia architecture with updated amenities, including a large great room that overlooks the ocean. It is a large, comfortable home in a spectacular setting and only a few seconds walk to the sandy beach.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          One can spend time here getting away from it all, or use the home as a base for excursions to the many tourist destinations that are a short driving distance away. Every visitor has enjoyed their stay. Your hosts strive to make sure you are comfortable and have a pleasant vacation.
