A winding driveway takes you to your hideaway by the sea, ideal for a couple looking to get away from it all. Situated on a beautiful peninsula, just steps from the bold Atlantic dramatic shoreline, you will wake up to spectacular views, the sound of rolling surf, smell of salt air. It’s really all about nature here.
The house was built in 2013, with a french country feel in mind, designed to feel like a true getaway. The feel is casual, cozy, with comfortable furniture, antiques, and artwork. A great place to be with the ones you love, relaxing with good food, good company and endless ocean views.
South and West exposure ensures plenty of light and gorgeous sunsets. Whether dramatic rolling surf, or tranquil days of glass, it's an awe inspiring experience every day.
The property is 23 acres with 1000 feet of Bold Atlantic frontage. Hike the trail leading from the house along the coast which starts from sea level leading up to a high dramatic ridge for more gorgeous views of surrounding islands and harbours. A boulder and stone beach in pale slate tones highlights the pristine crystal waters that often give a caribbean hue..
