Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Life-long Halifax resident with passion for weekend country life and outdoor living. It was always our dream to have a piece of Mahone Bay on the south shore of NS which is a only 50 minute drive from the city of Halifax.

Why the Owner Chose Mahone Bay, NS, Canada:
We love this property for its natural beauty, wild life and charm, its spectacular ocean views and close proximity to all that the town of beautiful Mahone Bay has to offer. This 38 acre property is located 1.5 km from the town, and offers private nature trails and biking trails which meander down to a large sand bottomed lake at the back of the property. The front of the property overlooks the ocean and has a large warf where you can launch your boat, kayak, swim, or simply sit on the Adirondack chairs and watch various boats (including the Bluenose) sail by. We are 2 km away from world-class award winning restaurants and a 15 km drive to historical Lunenburg. The renowned Lunenburg Yacht club is 12 km away and offers 1, 2 or 4 week sailing lessons for kids/teens of all sailing levels. Osprey Golf 18 hole golf course is 10 km away. A supermarket , pub, four great restaurants , gift shops, and tennis courts are located in the town, so we have all the amenities of city living, yet have the benefits of quiet and unspoiled beauty of rural living.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 km away from the heart of Mahone Bay and its award-winning restaurants and shops.Short drive to historical Lunenburg. Free use of kayaks and bikes during your stay. 50 minute drive to the city. 50 minute drive to Halifax International Airport. A family of pheasants have made our property their home over the last number of years. Frogs and ducks are regular visitors to the three ponds found on the property. This property has also hosted weddings.
