Imagine yourself awakening in a beautiful coastal home situated in tranquil Deep Cove, a short distance from the village of Chester. This majestic cove on the Aspotogan Peninsula of Nova Scotia was often a haven for sailors seeking shelter from the stormy Atlantic.
Open the double glass doors of your spacious main floor and experience the pleasure of the sea air from the intimacy of your veranda. No dress code required.
This accomodating1 1/2 story, 2 bedroom house offers all the modern amenities you need to relax and indulge yourself. The cozy library and the TV lounge, or anteroom can be easily adapted for additional sleeping quarters. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and all the accoutrements for the gourmet cook or cooks.
Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The large master bedroom has an ensuite, with a Jacuzzi bath and separate glass walled shower. The double doors from the master bedroom open to a secluded terrace. The main floor bedroom has a private bath/shower with a separate half-bathroom. The double doors of this bedroom lead out to the patio for the morning sunshine. There is a double futon sofa bed in the library and a king-size bed solution in the anteroom off of the living room. All sleeping areas are fully complimented with sheets, pillows and duvets for your ease and comfort.
Enjoy the view of the cove from your large screened-in veranda, which will shade you, as well as lend you shelter to read and relax at whim. The veranda also allows you to bbq and dine outside in the seaside atmosphere with ease and convenience.
Sail the ocean waters from your shared wharf or relax on the wharf and test your luck at some fishing. Try kayaking around the cove or play in the sand and waves at Bayswater Beach, only five minutes away.
The home is a perfect place to host family or friends for a special occasion. It lends itself to entertaining in an informal but gracious ambience, with the potential to open all the doors and enlarge the space onto the veranda. The vaulted ceilings, original art, and gorgeous fireplace add elegance to the living areas while the marble-topped counters give the open kitchen a hint of glamour.
If the evening is cooler, then the propane fireplace will lend warmth and romance with just the flick of a switch.
From this home you can take day trips to Lunenburg-a UNESCO world heritage site, Mahone Bay-the Home of the Wooden Boats, Halifax-the capital of Nova Scotia, founded in 1749....and this is all less than an hour away.
If you are flying into the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, this home is a 50-55 minute drive towards the coast. It is a 15-minute drive to the quaint and sophisticated village of Chester, which has upscale shops, good restaurants and live theatre throughout the summer. You could hop on the local ferry and enjoy a visit to the islands of Little or Big Tancook. The South Shore area has many pleasures to offer for sightseeing and adventure.
The Anchorage at Deep Cove is a community of individual homes designed by an extraordinary designer/artisan, Rob Parker, who purchased the land on the cove several years ago. He respected the integrity of the anchorage shoreline and he maintained the environmental beauty of the rocky shore.
Recently, an author who was in search of a place for inspiration ensconced herself in the house for a month during the winter season. She credits the peaceful atmosphere and the natural beauty as enabling her successful completion of the book. It was the right place at the 'write' time....her words!
