Year Purchased: 1986

Why the Owner Chose Hubbards, NS, Canada:
It was love at first sight when I came to view this property. I knew I had found my dream come true place in Nova Scotia. The chance to live by the ocean was what I had dreamed about. I love the fresh ocean air, and in all my years of living here, I have never tired of waking up to the beautiful view, the sound of the seagulls, and watching the lobster boats coming and going from the wharf near me.
