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 Beach and Property: The private beach, known locally as “Anne Murray’s Beach”, is shared by the occupants of only one other home, Cliffhanger House, which sits on an adjoining property. 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 the property also features a large salt water pond that hosts a variety of wildlife species and seabirds.
The Beach Lodge Inside: 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 counter tops, 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.
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 en suite master bathroom offers an extra-large tiled shower, and enters into a large walk-in closet.
The lower level has a luxurious family room, perfect for relaxing or watching a movie on the large flat screen TV. There is also a bathroom with a large shower/steam room perfect for finishing off a day at the beach. The laundry room with washer and dryer complete this floor.+ More
