Property DetailsIt began as a two room fisherman's house with sleeping loft above, on a rock shelf by the sea, built sometime in the 1800's and for years known as the Nathan Tanner house. An old German hymnal was found in the attic. In an age where many modern architects strive to make a 'statement', by contrast the owners of this home chose to paraphrase a simpler time . Three newer additions are sympathetic in scale, referencing 18th century British North American colonial architecture which take second stage to the ocean landscape visible from the windows in each room. A spacious living room features a wood burning Rumford fireplace and windows on three walls. Timbers from one of the retro fits of the Bluenose II were used in the construction of the main front staircase. There is a ground floor master suite with bath, library, kitchen with separate scullery/pantry and a charming breakfast room overlooking the water. The second floor offers a family bath, large storage room and two bedrooms one of which is currently used as a studio by a known local landscape artist. The property has a natural slipway, conducive to swimming as well, an old wharf with deep sheltered anchorage, a two stall stable, separate workshop building with wood stove, and double bay garage . A huge oak anchors the yard and with both privacy and over 630 feet of direct oceanfront and unspoiled views, this property would make the ideal family retreat just ten drive to the UNESCO site of Lunenburg.
