This place is magical. Perched above the Annapolis Valley, with Cape Blomidon in the distance beyond, this property boasts remnants of a 100+ year old farm including a magnolia tree, wild apple trees and a tree-lined meadow. This breathtaking property is surrounded by acres of forest providing ultimate privacy.

We envisioned this house as a perch for our clients to watch the light play across the valley below. The most important spaces in this home overlook the view, and our homeowners have the great fortune of waking up each morning as the golden sun begins to illuminate the landscape around them.

Though not among the original requests from our clients, the enclosed screen porch, which faces north-west, is now their favourite room in the house. The homeowners spend many hours in this space watching the sun set.

Three distinct rooms make up the upper floor of this home – a guest bedroom, a fitness/yoga room and a music space. An attached garage on the west side of the property buffers the home from passersby.
