Assembling some of Atlantic Canada's finest craftsman, Landahoy Properties has brought to life the romanticism of a bygone era in this unique and truly stunning, ocean front French inspired chateau.
From the master timber framer to the European stonemasons under the direction of local mason, Paul Vallar, these artisans have created a historically inspired masterpiece. And all this achieved with the convenience and technological capabilities of today in mind. This includes green energy geothermal climate control with remote smartphone access, state of the art home security with remote smartphone access, and a fully integrated generator, central vac and heated bath floors.
The prestige property sits proudly on the coast of the Aspotogan Peninsula. Boasting unparalleled far-reaching ocean views, various outbuildings, and capacious floor spaces, it gives the opportunity to choose how to live and work. In many other locations along the south shore, you will be jostling for the perfect view with neighboring properties. This area has the advantage of large lots and wide-open space.
Due to its spectacular setting, this estate can have alternate uses as a family home or a tourism business – perhaps for sailing, kayaking, or wildlife watching. The opportunity to run the estate as a successful luxury whole home rental business is also a prudent option. The fairytale design lends itself as a perfect wedding venue. Imagine a wedding by the ocean with the evening light streaming over the beautiful gardens and meadow. Picture a bouquet tossed off the Juliette balcony, the reception by the second floor stone fireplace, dinner in the “Great room”, and an evening of music and stories by the open fire pit.
Built in 2015, you will note the greatest attention to detail in all aspects of the house, including the whimsical floating staircase, the massive reclaimed beams of a historic locomotive roundhouse, the antique stone sink, reclaimed oaken floors from a Pennsylvania barn, tonnes of quarried Brunswick limestone, wood windows with aluminium oxide exteriors, 2 master bedrooms with ensuites, open concept kitchen / pantry, open concept attic with dance/yoga studio, 4 fireplaces, and a mini-soccer pitch. The wilderness element of seals, 9 resident deer, a porcupine, sea otter, and pheasants make it a nature lover’s paradise.
Add to this a rock walled apple grove illuminated at night, the faint clang of a buoy bell and lobster boats pulling traps from the waters directly off shore and you will discover a rare opportunity to own a most unique piece of Nova Scotia. (Additional acreage available on request as is the option of current property caretaker and maintenance equipment, tractors.)
The property is situated in a commanding hillside position. Whilst located in close proximity to the quiet village of Blandford, it is highly accessible, being only 50 minutes to Halifax International Airport, or the city of Halifax. As a social option, you would be only twenty minutes from the famous sailing community of Chester.
