Splendid views and a private sandy beach are among the many highlights of the Beach Lodge - the king of log homes.
If you've ever dreamt of the quintessential Canadian log home, the Beach Lodge is it. This 3500 sq. ft. home was built with spectacular hand-chiseled logs, some of which are 60 feet long and 2 feet thick. The design is open concept, with cathedral ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The log home is nestled amongst the trees, well above the high tide mark, and it enjoys picture-perfect views of St. Margaret's Bay and nearby islands.
The private beach, known locally as "Anne Murray's Beach", is shared by the occupants of only one other home. The sandy beach is protected, and perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and beach combing. And just around the corner, only a few minutes walk down the road, is Paddy's Head, widely considered to be one of the best scuba diving sites in Nova Scotia.
The property sits on approximately 6 acres of very private forested oceanfront land, and also features a large saltwater pond that hosts a variety of wildlife species and seabirds.
The open concept main floor boasts a large living room, kitchen, and dining area. The living room has an impressive fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the bay. The country style kitchen is a chef's delight, with granite countertops, a large island and all the modern appliances and tools you will need to cook up a storm. Two double bedrooms, and a full bathroom with a claw foot tub, make up the rest of the main floor plan.
A sizeable deck sits just off of the dining area and is perfect for enjoying a meal alfresco, or for simply enjoying the peace and tranquility of Nova Scotia nature at its best.
Upstairs, the open and spacious loft-style master bedroom looks down over the main floor and enjoys the most spectacular views of the ocean. The ensuite master bathroom offers an extra-large tiled shower, and enters into a large walk-in closet.
The finished lower level has a luxurious family room, perfect for relaxing or watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV. And if you're coming in from a swim in the ocean, why not jump into the tiled shower/steam room before heading upstairs. It's also worth mentioning that there is a utility room with a washer and dryer on this level.
The Beach Lodge is located in Indian Harbour, just minutes from Peggy's Cove. It is a 30 minute drive to Halifax and an hour to the airport.
Tantallon, a 20 minute drive away, has all the amenities you will need (grocery stores, liquor store, public library, gas stations, movie rentals, etc.) and there is a local shop a few kilometers down the road, which has all the basic necessities.
