City Oceanfront

When you walk in to the great room of this cottage home, you'll be transported to a time of simple elegance. This room, with its stone fireplace, is where in the early 1900s Major Reynolds would regale stories of his ship captain voyages. The summer home was bestowed to him by the Queen while he was stationed at York Redoubt. 548 Purcell's Cove Road was given to his mother (now a generous art studio), and 546 was another captain's cottage - now on offer for sale. This area was populated by many Purcell families who first came here in the late 1700s. Still maintaining the cottage charm to this day, while living in the city, this home has been lovingly cared for. In 1974 an addition was created to give more space to grow a family. A lovely sunroom greets you as you walk in to this three bedroom home. There is a greenhouse, rich flower gardens, and wharf and mooring on the property. You can watch incredible sunsets, rise with the sun, or just watch a regatta from the yacht clubs that are a few minutes away. Many years ago this is where peninsula residents of Halifax would "summer" in their cottage. Landscaped gardens, relaxing deck, and two minute drive to Dingle Park are a few of the amenities. Incredible opportunity to own close to 3/4 of an acre, too, by buying available neighbouring property, 546 Purcell's Cove road (PID #00340232). This combined offering surely is extremely rare in Halifax.
