Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am a carpenter and a young man from the area, I rebuilt this house with help from my father in 2012. I have been around the world and the rugged, pristine coastline of Nova Scotias South Shore is a truly special place. Summer rentals allow me to pay the mortgage and I am happy to share my slice of paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Hubbards, NS, Canada:
I choose to buy this property because of the spectacular location and having the skillset and energy to turn it into something beautiful. I am a wooden boat owner and sailing enthusiast and hope to still be in this house as an old man.
