Property Description

The Frances Louis House was designed and built in the early 1970s by a Nova Scotia architect, Keith Graham. The modernist design style of clean lines and light infused spaces is softened by the use of natural materials. The main living area is comprised of a large fully equipped kitchen, dining room and a sunken living room that looks out on to the deck. A large stone fireplace anchors the living room while floor to ceiling windows flood the space with light. A corridor leads from the main living area to the three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a small western facing balcony that overlooks the property, a queen size bed and an ensuite washroom with a dressing area and separate cedar lined shower room that feels like a steam bath. A second bedroom has two twin beds and a view of the garden. Carefully placed skylights bring additional light into the bedrooms. A third bedroom has a queen size bed. There is an additional washroom with separate vanity and toilet and a "steam bath" shower. The house is equipped with laundry facilities. Bed linens and towels are provided. Other amenities include: propane BBQ, WiFi, and wood fireplace.

Nestled amongst mature pines overlooking Port Joli Bay, Nova Scotia, this beautiful vacation home is an idyllic retreat offering privacy, relaxation, birding, and beautiful views. A wooded pathway leads down through the property to over 500 feet of secluded beach frontage.

It is just 5 kilometers to the spectacular Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct Provincial Park with its walking trails and abundance of wildlife. For museums, restaurants, shopping, live music and nightlife, Liverpool is about 20 minutes away. The historic town of Shelburne is only 30 minutes away. Its a 2-hour drive to Halifax International Airport and 1.5 hours to the ferry terminal in Yarmouth.

Francis Louis House has a one week SATURDAY TO SATURDAY rental period during the peak season (July and August) and three night minimum rental period during the shoulder seasons.
