Rural Residential For Sale
6276 Highway 337 , Antigonish, NS, B2G2L2
Cottage at Ballantynes Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada
If you love to breathe in fresh salty sea air, hear the cries of seagulls... if you dream of being lulled to sleep by the distant surf lapping on the seashore... if you long to stroll a sandy beach barefoot picking up driftwood or colourful stones and shells... look no further, you are home!
A lovingly restored century home nestled along the Sunrise Trail on Cape George, Nova Scotia in the quiet and picturesque fishing community of Ballantynes Cove, this home is next door to the wharf, marina and swimming beach. A 2 minute stroll and you can go for a swim, watch the fishing boats come and go, or grab an order of the best fish n chips anywhere! If you are a sailor, board your boat at Ballantynes Cove Marina and head out into St. Georges Bay for some great sailing and whale watching! Each room has been finished in warm earthy tones of sage, cottage red and cream which blend harmoniously with the rustic patina of the old hand-hewn wood beams and the rich finish of the hardwood and pine board flooring.
