Property description

This historic home named 'Brigadoon' has 6 bedrooms with 8 beds. The front porch is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail, admire the garden and breathe the ocean air. It's three stories, but the main floor includes wheelchair accessible bedroom and master bath. There's a shower in the bathroom on the main floor and a claw foot tub in the bathroom on the second floor. You'll find a beautiful fireplace in the living room, a large formal dining room, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen (with separate pantry room) and a sun room that's great for watching boats go by in the distance or for curling up with a great book. It's a one minute walk to Chester's 'front harbor' where there are views of sailboats, beautiful homes on the peninsula and islands in the distance.

Car: Recommended

Located in the quaint town of Chester, this home is perfectly situated on a quiet street. You can walk to shops, restaurants, the farmer's market, the theater, the marina, grocery store, post office, the bank, you name it! Chester and it's surrounding communities are easily accessible. The towns of Lunenburg and Bridgewater and Mahone Bay are only a short drive away. How about spending an afternoon exploring Tancook Island? It's just a ferry ride away from the Village of Chester. $5 buys you and your bicycle an 8 km trip across the water from Chester for a step back in time and a step closer to nature. Tancook Island is only 3 miles long and 1.5 miles at the widest point. With only 125 year-round residents, it's true island life, Nova Scotia-style. If you are familiar with the Sci-fy network show 'Haven' it's filmed here in Chester.
