What we like about this property

We love how this private escape embraces architectural sophistication, honest charm, and appreciation for its beautiful natural setting. Placed in dramatic contrast to it’s environment, it makes a thrilling impact.

Description

Located in splendid solitude along the rugged and wild Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia, this architectural gem is set along a secluded peninsula with it’s own private bay, a sandy beach and breathtaking views. Situated down a private road on over five acres, this exclusive oceanfront retreat is a hidden gem that makes a dramatic statement without intruding on the natural beauty of the landscape. Characterized by bold geometric lines, natural materials and punches of color and modern style, both the interiors and exteriors allow for the appreciation of cutting edge design and nature. The lofty interiors are beautifully composed with double height floor to ceiling walls of glass that capture the scenery. With the bright, open plan living and dining areas that overlook the views and a fully equipped kitchen, the house is expansive and ideal for entertaining. With a total of five bedrooms the house sleeps up to ten guests and each is positioned to take in the stunning views. Adjacent to the living areas is the wind protected sun deck with a large heated pool and pool house that’s perfect for summer days and nights. You can stroll out to a second deck that sits above the rocky shore or down to the board walk that leads to the ocean front deck perfect for taking in the view or launching your kayak.

This house is a stunning example of the intersection of pure modernism and wild natural beauty. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Because of the relative isolation, this house is low tech in terms of common wireless entertainment. No internet available but mobile net accessible. Landline telephone and FAX, audio stereo system with CD player, books and maps. Laundry facilities. Sauna and recreational equipment including: two kayaks, bodysuits, life vests, fishing gear.

AROUND

Although blessed with complete solitude and unspoiled natural beauty, you are within less than an hour from downtown Halifax and the bustling water front. The area of Prospect Bay is located along the Chebucto Peninsula and  the Terence Bay wilderness area. Just north of nearby Mahone Bay and the world heritage site of Lunenburg, other famous sites on the island are Cape Breton with the Cabot Trail at the furthest northeastern end of the island, and the National Park Bay of Fundy across the island. Annapolis Valley includes vineyards and historical towns and the vast Kejim-Kuchik National Park is a wild escape for outdoor enthusiasts.

    We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home this summer. We enjoyed the beautiful views and all the adventure it had to offer. The kids loved endless climbing on the rocks, the changing tides, beach trips, the light house, and of course the pool/sauna. We saw porcupines on the road almost every evening. We were so relaxed with all the amenities. Nova Scotia is one of our favorite destinations now and we hope to visit the Box House in the near future!

    What a spectacular and well-appointed house! The setting is beautiful – lots of wildlife to enjoy – and the house a joy to stay in and immaculately clean. The kayaks provided lots of forays into the nearby bays, and the pool and sauna were wonderful. A perfect vacation retreat, with lots of interesting day trips in the area if you wish.

    This house was a dream. My husband and I eloped to Nova Scotia and actually got married at the Box House. It was perfect for our family of 6 and the perfect setting for a week away.

    The views are amazing and the private cove stunning. There was lots to do at the house for all – bouldering, swimming, kayaking, and enjoying the view.

    The house had everything we could need and the sauna was a plus. It’s close enough to Halifax if you want to spend time in the city but far enough away to really disconnect.

    We will go back for one of our anniversaries for sure.
