Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I have lived in many provinces across Canada and visited many countries and loved them all. When I arrived in Nova Scotia about 30 ago I had a very intense feeling that I really belonged here. Coming from Norwegian roots I can relate well to this maritime province.

Why the Owner Chose Halifax, NS, Canada:
I have enjoyed living in this home for 15 years. From the moment I stepped into the yard i knew that this place was special. It exudes a calming and peaceful vibe. This is meant to be shared. I want everyone to experience this energy and the joy that comes with being here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I feel very privileged to live so close to the ocean. But Nova Scotia is so much more than the ocean that surrounds it almost completely. Each part of the province offers something very unique......the lushness of the Annapolis valley and it's orchards and lakes; the ruggedness, large surf and quaint fishing villages of the eastern shore; the warm ocean, great beaches and farms of the north shore; and the great sailing and historic homes of sea captains of the south shore.
