Located on Kingsburg Beach in Kingsburg, Nova Scotia, the design of the Beach House incorporates the distinctive characteristics of the numerous old English barns that surround it. Years ago there was a barn in this exact same location. The building features a central area with a 30 foot high cathedral ceiling and two sleeping lofts, joined by a bridge. It is beautifully finished in pine throughout. The outside is finished in weathered cedar shingles. The house was planned by Brian MacKay-Lyons and Anne Fouillard, decorated by Anne and built by Warren McAuley and John Duckworth in 1997. It has outstanding appeal and functionality. It is located in an 18th century Swiss German settlement featuring +/- 200 year old classic Cape Cod style houses, all constructed with handhewn beams. Adding additional historical interest, adjacent to the Beach House, there is a small, quaint, centuries-old settlers cemetery.
Two loft bedrooms on the upper level - one with queen size bed, the other with two single beds; on the main floor there is a small bedroom with a double bed.+ More
