About the property

Stunning 5 Bedroom Executive Oceanfront Home Near Peggy's Cove And Halifax

This meticulously crafted, ultra energy-efficient home took great pains to find a site worthy of their dream home. Situated on approximately 3 acres of gorgeous oceanfront land in the idyllic seaside community of east dover, the location offers both an abundance of passive solar gain, and extraordinary panoramic vistas of the surrounding islands and open atlantic. Designed by don roscoe, the home is extremely fluid and comfortable, with a view of the sea from every window. The open-concept layout of the main level is fantastic, and includes a vaulted great room with high-end stainless steel woodstove, a beautiful kitchen/dining area (with granite countertops and island), a study, and a well-appointed bedroom, all with incredible views. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a generous walk-in closet, 6-piece bath, plus two additional bedrooms. The lower level features a beautiful bedroom with walkout, a spacious family/exercise room, cold room, 3-piece bath/laundry room, and fully finished project room/workshop. With a beautiful detached garage, solar panels for domestic hot water, a solar forced-air heating and recirculation system, and state of the art fixtures and finishes, this oceanfront home is as beautiful as its surroundings. And (of course) you'll find a beautiful spot by the shore to go fishing, or just relax and watch the passing marine life!

Gorgeous Oceanfront Home On The South Shore Of Nova Scotia
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

An outstanding and beautiful home for a memorable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a cousins' vacation at the end of August 2016. There were three couples-two from Alberta and one from Scotland.

The home is just as pictured and described in the VRBO site. A beautiful property that sits on a rocky bluff looking out at the ocean from every level. Even from the bedroom on the lower walk-out level, you have a view of the ocean.

The home is extremely comfortable and has every amenity one would want. For our group, each couple had their own floor for sleeping, which was like being in a boutique hotel.

Spacious and beautiful throughout, a large deck looking onto the ocean, a patio and fire pit below, and winding paths down to the water-everything one could want to enjoy this beautiful location about 5 minutes from Peggy's Cove, very private and quiet. For anyone who wants a tranquil place to re-charge their batteries-walking, reading, relaxing on the deck or patio, or for a group who want to have fun together and travel the beautiful coast of Nova Scotia ---this is definitely the place!

About 30 minutes from Halifax, a great city to visit, especially the boardwalk; five minutes to Peggy's Cove, about an hour to Lunenberg and Mahone Bay, the location allows for lovely coastal drives, with some great restaurants, quaint shops, and many stopping points to take in the ocean views.

We highly recommend this home!

Beautiful house. Gorgeous setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and full of light. The windows provide 180 degree views of the ocean and the rugged Nova Scotia terrain.

We had 3 couples, who each selected bedrooms on separate floors, so we had plenty of privacy. When we were together, the living areas and outdoor spaces were large and comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked many meals there. We also enjoyed using the grill.

The house was very clean.

We may have to return in the future!!

Gorgeous Views from a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This property has incredible views of the Nova Scotia coastline. Pictures don't convey the beauty. The house has awesome windows and you get views from everywhere. It is very quiet. This property is at the top of properties we have rented and we travel extensively.

There is a restaurant called Rhubarb about 15 minutes away and they had great food, so we ate there almost every night. But if you bring your own food to the rental, there is everything needed to prepare and enjoy your meals.

The rental is spacious, clean and the deck is terrific. A great property.

The owner was very responsive and provided everything needed to easily get into and out of the property.

We loved it a lot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing, very clean and everything that one need to feel fully at home.

The view and the quiet was relaxing and impressing at the same time.

We stayed for a week with two families, 4 adults and 4 kids, but the house would have even provised enough space for a third family. We can really recommend it.

Beautiful week, thanks a lot!

Beautiful view and stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was perfect. The house is beautiful with a wonderful view and trail to a cliff view of the water. We stayed there with 10 adults and the house had plenty of room for all of us. Communicating with the property owner was smooth and our stay was easily coordinated. Would definitely stay here again!
