Fox Hill Acres
Composed of five unique parcels of land, this fourteen acre family compound on a breathtaking Marriott’s Cove elevation, is the complete package. The property is comprised of the “Hillside”(a four bedroom main house), “The Den” (a two bedroom guest house), the pool area, the boat house, and the forest lot. It is ideally suited for entertaining and extended family living.
The main house is sited to take full advantage of the spectacular sweeping views to the south over the open waters of Mahone Bay, and to the west across Marriott’s Cove and beyond. Settled into the natural contours of the drumlin crest, this 4456 sqft home runs east – west following the predominant sight line of the ocean horizon. The 250 sqft master bedroom, comfortably fits a king size bed, and the two 118 sqft bedrooms bookend the centrally located Great Room. The spacious foyer opens directly into the 572 sqft Great Room and dining area. Large side by side windows flood the room with light and frame magnificent panoramic views to the water. The Great Room has a cathedral ceiling, and a stone fireplace that anchors the structure. A wing to the west holds an enclosed sun porch. The den is east of the foyer, and is currently used as a home office/library. The open kitchen, with four stool counter seating, is perfectly situated off the main dining living area. Several bathrooms adorn the main floor, including an en suite with a private whirlpool tub area, and a dressing room next to the master bedroom. A generous 1050 sqft of south facing deck flanks the estate, providing exquisite vistas of the natural surroundings. The downstairs garden area is yet another level for guests or extended family. It has an additional 1763 sqft of space providing a large bedroom, currently with two singles and a double bed, washroom, massive games room, mechanical storage workroom and double garage. Completely renovated in 2004, Hillside is the perfect family home.
The guest house’s sweeping 360 degree view from the high point of land reveals the ocean to the south, Marriott’s Cove to the west, and pastoral rolling hills and wooded valleys to the north and east. Attention to detail was of paramount importance when Barry Redmond constructed this gorgeous home in 2004. All 2211 sqft of The Den is a marriage of classic and contemporary design, retaining both a relaxed and sophisticated spirit. A vast southerly exposure is embraced by the expansive window treatment and covered verandah. The stone indoor and outdoor fireplace, side verandah, and open concept ground floor dining room, kitchen, and living room creates optimal Feng Shui! With three bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, there is ample room for a family. The pinnacle of the estate is the second floor with elevated views from every window. The gallery room and front covered deck look out are jaw dropping. The master quarters with en suite, tiled shower room, and private dressing room, provide ultimate privacy. Between the double garage and The Den, there is a mechanical utility room, all connected by a deck. If that isn’t enough for you, two massive workbench panoramic windows adorn the garage with a stunning landscape vista. Within sight of the house is the lily pad pond, which is beautifully landscaped with winding paths and extensive stonework. It sits at the base of the eastern hill, viewed from the verandah before the wooded area.
The Pool Area
Comprised of the pool house, screened gazebo, and saltwater pool, this niche of the property delights with surrounding gardens and views. The pool house has a heated bath within the washroom facilities, a refreshment area, a mechanical room and storage.
The Boat House
With views straight down the cove, this parcel of land is your access point to the ocean playground. A beautiful sandy beach and old wharf complete the 45 ft. ocean frontage. Over 370 sqft of storage space is available within the boathouse. Deep water anchorage and several full service marinas make this an optimal spot for the boating enthusiast.
