Unquestionably one of the most dramatic locations on the entire South Shore of Nova Scotia. Property includes the entire tip of the Rose Head peninsula (2,400 feet of ocean frontage) and features spectacular cliffs, islets, juniper meadows, a pebble beach, sea caves and a mesmerizing ocean gorge where breakers explode against the rock face some 80 feet below the cliff top. Your own private hiking trail skirts the ocean’s edge with scenery every bit as stunning as that found in a provincial or national park. There’s even a single lone pine tree on a rocky outcropping reminiscent of the often photographed scene from Pebble Beach, California. The house itself is perfectly situated on one of the property’s highest points and boasts breathtaking 360 degree views of the open Atlantic, Kingsburg Beach, Rose Bay and the coastline extending up to Peggy’s Cove. Completed in 2006, this spacious and airy house includes an array of custom designed elements, architectural details and sweeping ocean views from every window.
