The area. In addition to its close proximity to Hirtle’s Beach, the house is walking distance to Kingsburg Beach and is surrounded by rolling hills. It is located 30 minutes from Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site, near golf courses, whale watching, cycling and kayaking. The picturesque towns of Mahone Bay and Chester are a short drive away.


Getting there. The house is a 90-minute drive from the Halifax International airport. From Highway 103, take Exit 11 to Lunenburg, turn right on Route 332 to Rose Bay. From there, turn left to Kingsburg and then right on Hirtle’s Beach Road and right again up MacKay Hill Lane, the last road before you reach the beach. Go to the top of the hill until you cannot go any further – the Red House awaits.
