Dramatic bluff views, beautiful sunsets and 547 feet of bold oceanfront, make this 11 acre property on Nova Scotias scenic Eastern Shore the perfect seaside hideaway. Designed to meld into the natural landscape, this home was crafted in the casual, yet elegant, style of the French countryside. No detail was overlooked with the old-world concrete exterior, cedar shake roof, custom concrete limestone finish countertops, and Marvin French clad windows and doors. The great room with its roaring fireplace and spectacular views of Indian Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance is truly the heart of this home. French doors lead out to the 30 foot X 10 foot covered porch, which is the ideal place to watch the sunset and is just steps from your private beach. Neighbouring the home, a concerte pad is poured for a future garage, studio or guest house (septic, water and electrical already in place). The coastline between Holland and Indian Harbours is a true nature sanctuary, offering a haven for wildlife viewing, kayaking, hiking, and fishing, all at your doorstep. The peninsula, developed as Artinsula, with nature and privacy in mind, currently has 7 homes and is made up of an International community of residents from Switzerland, Germany, US, Italy, Quebec, and Nova Scotia. The 1.5 km access road winds through the peninsula, (great for nature walks and picking raspberries and blueberries) and leads to a small community boat launch.
