Annapolis Royal house description

In the early 1950's our Father designed the house and our maternal Grandfather had it built in 1952. The outside is cedar shingled and the inside has pine tongue and groove walls and maple floors. In this 1 and 1/2 story home there are three large bedrooms and one bathroom. There is a cathedral ceiling in the very large living room (17'x27' / 5.23m x 8.30m) and a proper country eat-in kitchen (14'x19' / 4.31m x 5.85m). All rooms are nicely furnished with period pieces and many handmade hooked rugs. The house is comfortable and filled with old world charm.

Our Canadian property stretches between the Annapolis Basin and the Bay of Fundy; shore to shore. We have 300+ acres of woodland and shoreline for your enjoyment. Wildlife on the property consists of hummingbirds, deer, rabbits, hawks, loons, woodchucks, and chipmunks just to name a few. The Thorne's Cove shore is about 60’ / 18.5m from the living room door, providing a spectacular view.

The house is located on a very secluded spot on the property. Peace, quiet and privacy could be yours for a week, a month or longer. It has been our honor to rent to three honeymoon couples & one wedding party which included the ceremony and reception.

There are many indoor and outdoor games available. A Ping-Pong table can be set up in the 1-1/2 story, two car detached garage. There are also horseshoes, badminton, board games, puzzles, over 350 movies and over 200 books. If you wish to leave the property there is golfing, whale watching or canoeing all within a 40 minute drive.

There are numerous artisan and antique shops in the nearby town; North America's oldest European settlement, Annapolis Royal (c1604). The local area abounds with over 400 years of history and should be considered as a travel destination.
