Car: Necessary

Lawrencetown is a beach community with the best surfing in Canada all year round. The village is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Halifax where there are historic attractions, shopping,restaurants and theatre. My home has a panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean and the lights of the Halifax harbour can be seen at night. The house is next to the Canada Trail a marvelous walking and cycling trail that winds around the oceanside. My house has a dog pen for your pet. The house is set up on a cliff and is very private with the closest neigbours over 1/2 mile away.September is a great month to visit here as the weather is still beautiful and the beaches are deserted.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am 60 years old but feel like twenty especially living near the ocean. I was born on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy where you can see the highest tides in the world. I grew up in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario where I studied dance at York University and eventually received my Masters in Counselling Psychology. I have been a Counselling Therapist here in Nova Scotia since 2001 when I returned to the ocean I love. My husband was a police officer with the Dartmouth Police for 33 years. He is now retired and looks after a disabled brother and everyone else in the family. We live about 8 km from the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Halifax, NS, Canada:
You will know when you arrive. It is a little gem on the Atlantic Ocean. Very cozy with lots of handmade art and an ever-changing panoramic view of the ocean from the two large front windows. Everything you need to make great meals and lots of walking trails in every direction. Many of my guests have returned several times because there is no place like it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Out in the country and not far from the city of Halifax. Watch surfers or surf yourself all year round. Many beautiful beaches, Lawrencetown Beach 10 minutes on the trail away and others from 8 minutes and up. This is a very central location to use as a base to tour Nova Scotia.
