Description de la propriété
Located in beautiful Terence Bay, a coastal Nova Scotia fishing village since the 1800s, this lovely property is newly updated and boasts many new features (bathroom, decks, beds, linens) to make your stay away from home as enjoyable as possible. Relax at this large, well-kept property while enjoying magnificent panoramic views. View some of of Nova Scotia's finest sunsets over the Back Bay from either deck or from the house. Depending on her mood, you might hear the roar of the Atlantic or the mournful sound of the groaner bouy. Perhaps you'll prefer the tranquility of the Back Bay as the tide rises and falls. Breathe the fresh salt air.
A five minute walk will take you to the beginning of a coastal trail or to Kayak rentals and kayaking among the pretty islands and bays with their white granite shores. Continue past the kayak docks and you'll walk past a miniature village thoughtfully created and cared for by a local resident. Another ten minutes walking and you’ll be at the end of the peninsula. On the other side of the village, visit the SS Atlantic Interpretive Center and learn about the terrible shipwreck in 1873 when some 500 people lost their lives in the waters off Mars Island less than two miles away. Memorials in both the Roman Catholic and Anglican cemeteries mark the sites of two mass graves in which most of the drowned were laid to rest.
On the main floor of the house, you’ll find the kitchen, den, living and dining rooms, a half bath and a large west-facing sunporch. Upstairs are two good-sized bedrooms with rustic wood floors and new queen beds. “The Shed”, a rustic outbuilding, is located up on the field. The shed is actually quite a lovely space doing double duty as a separate retreat for quiet relaxation among the trees and has sleeping quarters for four. Even the ‘big kids’ will want to claim this spot for their own when you arrive!
A journey along the Atlantic coast south and west from downtown Halifax is a trip through a timeless and beautiful landscape. Lighthouses stand guard along rocky headlands, broad sand beaches are shaped and reshaped by fresh salt breezes, and tiny fishing villages stand in weathered harmony with the sea.
From the Armdale Rotary, take Rte. 3 to Rte.333. Locally known as Prospect Road, Rte.333 takes you through the communities of Goodwood, Hatchett Lake, Brookside and White's Lake, where you can take a side trip to Terrence Bay or Prospect for ocean vistas and working fishing villages. In Terrence Bay you can visit the memorial to the 1873 wreck of the SS Atlantic. From White's Lake, continue to Shad Bay and East and West Dover, villages where the homes sit directly on the bare granite. This stark rock-strewn landscape is the entrance to Peggy's Cove, the most famous fishing village in the world.
The sturdy lighthouse overlooking the harbour has become a symbol of the spirit of coastal Nova Scotia. The present lighthouse was built in 1914 but is no longer used as a navigational beacon. Instead, it houses the only fully operational Canadian post office in a lighthouse during the summer months.
Hwy. 333 continues past the famous cove along the shore of St. Margaret's Bay through a series of sheltered villages - Indian Harbour, Hackett's Cove, Glen Margaret, Seabright, French Village, Glen Haven and Tantallon. This winding route is one of the most scenic drives in Nova Scotia. The terrain slowly changes from the rugged barren granite of the headland to more pastoral woods and farmland that roll gently down to the tranquil waters of St. Margaret's Bay. Antique and artisans' shops and a variety of restaurants abound along the roadside.
Hubbards is a charming seaside village that marks the southwestern limit of the Halifax Regional Municipality. The 205-year old town has all the amenities of a popular summertime retreat.
