Property description

This quaint century plus year old seaside home is nestled where the Atlantic Ocean reaches close to the front door. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck with the Southeast exposure with the view of the sisters shoal at the mouth of the Harbour. Spend afternoons watching your kids fishing or swimming from the community wharf across the street.

Lots to do, bring your Kayaks, cycle the Sambro loop , nearby hiking trails at Duncans Cove Chebucto Head, or Crystal Crescent beach, scuba diving with many wrecks up and down Halifax Harbour. Surfing at Lawrencetown Beach. Beaches minutes away or visit the oldest working Lighthouse in the Americas on Sambro Island established in 1758.

Minutes to the working commerical fishing village of Sambro where the fresh catch of the day can be purchased directly off the boat at Sambro Seafoods.

Minutes to Downtown Halifax for Museums, Universities, Theatre, live music, dining, shopping or just absorbing the areas of rich history at the Citadel, York Redoubt or Halifax's Waterfront Historic Properties.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Your host, Cheryl and Tony grew up in nearby communities along this rugged shoreline. Cheryl was from Bald Rock a 25 minute walk from Harbour’s Reach. Tony grew up in Bear Cove a 5 minute drive closer to the city. We live only 10 minutes away in Herring Cove but definitely don’t have the water views that Harbour’s Reach offers.

Why the Owner Chose Ketch Harbour, NS, Canada:
Tony has wanted to buy a rental for quite some time but I was hesitant. When this property came available it didn’t take any convincing, so we embarked on a new adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having coffee on the deck and looking out at the beautiful view.
