The Stewart House, circa 1779, set in the historic village of Grand Pre, is at the heart of Nova Scotia wine country. Long noted for its pastoral beauty and large number of heritage properties, Grand Pre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012. The house is within walking distance of the Bay of Fundy along country roads with panoramic views.
The Stewart House has been in the family since it was built. It combines the elegance of 18th C architecture and antiques with modern Nova Scotia art. There are four bedrooms, four baths, a fine parlor with a dining area, as well as a “great room” (a well equipped kitchen, dining, and family room with a 60” flat screen television).
Grand Pre is only minutes from the town of Wolfville and Acadia University, which offer all the amenities of a college town: restaurants, a movie theatre, bars, pubs, art galleries, book stores, a gym with a swimming pool and tennis courts. The Valley is known for the excellence of its local produce (including fish and lobster, of course) and there is a tradition of good cooking. There are numerous local farm market outlets as well as the Saturday morning market in Wolfville, a magnet for local farmers and vendors across the Valley.
In summer, Nova Scotia is a paradise for outdoor activities. From Grand Pre, you are within easy reach of fresh and salt water beaches, historic sites and museums, whale watching, cycling, hiking, kayaking, gallery hopping and rock and fossil hounding.+ More
