Description

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves crashing against the shore and the smell of the ocean in the air. You step out onto your deck, nestled among the tree tops overlooking the lake, with coffee in hand before heading out for a morning kayak or stand-up paddle board session in your very own backyard.

...Or perhaps the surf is up this morning and you head down to the beach to catch a few waves at the coveted Point Break in Lawrencetown Provincial Park or you might take a kite surfing lesson with some friends at Stoney Beach. Maybe you prefer a quieter morning and walk to the beach taking in breathtaking ocean views, strolling in the sand, collecting shells or browsing the local surf and artisans shops at The MacDonald House. Finish off your morning with a hearty bowl of hot soup and a fresh baked biscuit at Heron's View restaurant in the "tea house" overlooking the dramatic cliffs to Canada's Ocean Playground.

Keep your eye on the trees if you want to catch a glimpse of our local snowy owl. Bald eagles and hawks regularly fly past this home's panoramic windows clutching their catch as they head back to the nest to feed their babies. Every winter, otters play on the ice in the sun just in front of this home with gorgeous lake frontage. In summer, enjoy clam digging on the sandbars, harvesting oysters from the rocky shore or watching the summer days slowly slip away as you relax in your canoe fishing on the lake. Directly across from this lakeside property is an island ready for you to explore with rabbits, birds and theres even a perfect little spot for stargazing.

New adventures await you in your own backyard. For the active transportation lovers, this property has easy access to a coastal greenway that passes through Lawrencetown Cole Harbour Park system offering an experience of salt marshes, stunning headland bluffs, beaches and woodland. The Atlantic View Trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail system and is known as the most scenic of Halifax's Rails to Trails routes at 10km in length with flat terrain so it's an easy trail to accomplish by bike.

Horse lovers will enjoy easy access to an equestrian centre close by with plenty of backwoods trails to explore. With Lawrencetown beach just a short walk or a quick paddle up the lake, you will discover that outdoor activities in this community are simply endless.

Skiing is just an hour away at Martock or an hour and a half to Ski Wentworth. You could always just stay home and try skating on the lake under the stars before curling up with some hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows over your large wood fireplace.

This property is Nova Scotia at its finest; far enough from town to feel miles away yet close enough for daily commuting, catching a movie at the cinema or meeting up with friends for a night on the town in Halifax (there is even a bus stop a few minutes up the road).

Head a little further East to beautiful Porters Lake with the entrance to Porters Lake Provincial Park just minutes away. Head a bit further and you will be in the historic village of Musquodoboit Harbour where you can enjoy a weekly Farmers Matrket, bakery, community artisan hub, cafe and of course the longest sandy beach in Nova Scotia: Martinique Beach, with excellent surfing, picnic areas and trails.

If any of this sounds of interest to you then you will love this beautiful modern home. The property is in the prime location of 42 Bastian Point Road in East Lawrencetown on a quiet seaside street. The property is sloping gently toward a generous lake frontage on Lawrencetown Lake.
