The Lighthouse Keeper

Built over one hundred years ago for a local lighthouse keeper, with the simple classic form of a fisherman's cottage, replicated in modern architecture to this day, charming, quirky, a survivor of over a century of evolving life-styles, this basic home with its "no nonsense" decor is worth careful consideration.

Blue Rocks and neighbouring Stonehurst are among the most photographed locations in Lunenburg County, unspoiled, and for the most part without the imposition of big, modern architecture. The lighthouse keeper has passed on, but the holistic atmosphere of a quiet Nova Scotia fishing village remains.

The house is on four acres, with 1250 feet of ocean frontage, a pond, out buildings including new garage with sleeping loft, and a new wharf and dock on a sheltered cove, ten minutes drive to the UNESCO site of Lunenburg.

This home forgets the bigness of modern living, and embraces what is simple. It has held many kitchen parties in the past and hosted carpenters, fishermen, politicians, doctors and lawyers, Tom Selleck and Patricia Arquette. The community has a good spirit and welcomes everyone to its door.
