Not a Real Lighthouse, But…
It might as well be. This 30 acre oceanfront property in Nova Scotia is up for sale for a mere $1,495,000 CDN. The property has a lighthouse-like tower attached to its cozy home with two bedrooms and bath and an observation deck inside it.The main house has a master bedroom suite, a great room, loft, galley kitchen, storage, utility and bath. Other buildings include a large garage and a building to house a generator. This beautiful location is on Second Peninsula, which is about halfway between the towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. Oh heck, let me just put the description from the realtor’s site:
Second Peninsula is well known to cyclists and to others who just drive/pedal down the road here for the pure joy of looking at the unspoiled scenery. Bachman’s Beach, near the end of the peninsula, is a local sandy swimming spot. Princess Inlet - a yacht lover’s paradise - is on the north side of the peninsula and the quiet protected (and navigable) waters of Martin Cove is to the south. The area is about midway between the historic towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay - each about a 20 minute drive from here. Halifax and international air connections are about 90 minutes away.
An unspoiled pristine “island you can drive to” - this 30 acre +/- tip of beautiful Second Peninsula is one of the last undivided oceanfront parcels in the greater Mahone Bay area. A lighthouse style “cottage” is a familiar landmark for yachting people but barely visible from any public highway. The views - especially from the observation platform - are beyond words. An ingenious bit of architecture, the open concept dwelling allows living on one level and features sliding garden doors to the deck / terrace on two sides with stunning ocean views both ways.. Two more bedrooms are in the tower. Power is supplied by generator, and there is a power easement to the site.
