Conceived and planned by Brian MacKay-Lyons, one of Canada’s best known modern architects and planners, SHOBAC is located in what is deemed to be the most breathtaking natural environment on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. SHOBAC is a small, world renowned, award-winning, residential oceanfront retreat. Surrounded by the ocean, Hirtle’s Beach, the Sea Horse Farm and the Nature Conservancy’s 124 acre Gaff Point, SHOBAC offers miles of spectacular coastal hiking, horse riding, kayaking and surfing. Oriented toward the south west and nestled at the foot of an amphitheatre of rolling meadows, with grazing sheep, cattle and horses, this oceanfront lot leaves you with the feeling that you have finally found what you have been looking for. Not just another oceanfront lot, this property comes complete with its own controlled +/- 200 acre natural and built environment. This is a full service opportunity to have a small home, designed by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects and built by local craftsmen, while enjoying the amenities offered by Shobac and Sea Horse Farm – including optional participation in a cottage rental program.
