Year Purchased: 2012
About: The owner is native Nova Scotian, now living in Houston, Texas with her Kiwi husband and their teenage daughter. Growing up in Halifax, her summers were largely spent roaming the south shore of Nova Scotia. Windrose has been bought in anticipation of returning fulltime to NS at some point in the future. In the meantime, they invite you to enjoy the quiet charm of this lovely village
Why Chester: Chester is one of many charming historic towns along the south shore of Nova Scotia. The village is somewhat unique, however, as it is a compact community removed from the main road. The town itself offers plenty of activities and restaurants and it is central enough to enjoy day outings to areas such as Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, various south shore beaches, as well as the museums, art galleries, medical facilities and nightlife of Halifax. The perfect combination!
The Unique Benefits at this House: When the last owner's renovated the home, they took a lot of trouble to maintain the historic feel, while adding a spectacular 40' long living area toward the back of the house. During the day, the light in this room can be stunning, and at night, the huge fireplace comforts and relaxes. Decks surround the living room and kitchen, and outdoor living on a sunny day is sublime. The master suite has its own private deck and charming fireplace, a perfect retreat.
