Sunrise on Chester's Front Harbour

With sweeping views of Chester's Front Harbour, the coastal golf course and the island beyond, imagine experiencing the beautiful sunrises and heavenly moon rises from the spacious balcony off the master bedroom. One of the original farm houses on Chester's Peninsula, it was conformed to a Cape in the late 19th century. The property was tastefully restored in 2009. It has modern central heating and air conditioning, a generator, Sub Zero and Bosch appliances, while maintaining old exposed hand hewn beams and golden softwood floors. A handsome covered slate terrace and upper deck were added; the perfect place to watch the yacht races. Interior and architectural additions are by noted designers, creating an especially aesthetic summer or year round residence.
The house, guest house, tennis court, and extensive perennial gardens are enclosed by an impressive hedge for privacy. Across the quiet road, through a charming gate, stone steps lead to a newly built wharf and floats, equipped with electricity and water. The coveted large water lot, with 4 moorings, also has its own private beach for evening bonfires and lobster bakes.
The guest house is a sanctuary in the garden, with vaulted ceilings and privacy. It also could be used as an artist's studio or games room. This property is located on the desirable Chester peninsula, and is walking distance to Freda's Beach, the Yacht Club, Playhouse, fine restaurants and coffee shops, near full service marinas and more, all an hour from Stanfield International Airport, on Nova Scotia's Bluenose Coast.
