About the property

Stunning 5 Bedroom Oceanfront Home Near Peggy's Cove And Halifax

This meticulously crafted home is situated on approximately 3 acres of gorgeous oceanfront land in the idyllic seaside community of East Dover. The location offers extraordinary panoramic vistas of the surrounding islands and open Atlantic. Designed by Don Roscoe, the home is extremely fluid and comfortable, with a view of the sea from every window. The open-concept layout of the main level is fantastic, and includes a vaulted great room, with floor to ceiling windows offering an amazing view of the surrounding ocean. A beautiful kitchen/dining area (with granite countertops and island), a study, and a well-appointed bedroom, all with incredible views. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a generous walk-in closet, 6-piece bath, plus two additional bedrooms. The lower level features a beautiful bedroom with walkout, a spacious family/exercise room, 3-piece bath/Laundry room. This oceanfront home is as beautiful as its surroundings. And (of course) you'll find a beautiful spot by the shore to go fishing, or just relax and watch the passing marine life! We are minutes away from famous Peggy’s Cove. We offer rentals by the week during the summer and 2 day stays during the off season. This is a rare stunning home right on the ocean that is perfect for your vacation getaway.

5 star view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much. The pictures and descriptions were accurate. Only annoyances we encountered were upstairs bedrooms lack of window shades and a frequent clicking noise which the owner told us was an air cleaner that kicks on automatically. The house has everything for a great family vacation. A full kitchen with plates/tools and lots of space.

We had 2 of the best family dinners ever at the house, cooking fresh lobsters we got at Ryer's (just past Peggy's Cove), and eating them on the back deck as the sun set with that view.

Some other local favorites we found… Restaurants: Shaw's Landing close by casual and Rhubarb for something fancier further past Peggy's Cove. Btw Peggy's Cove was so crowded every day! But we loved the swim and exploring the tidal pools of Clam Pond (behind the visitor center parking lot).

We used the fire pit one night (you have to check a web site if its OK to burn that day). The house has a nice path down to the water. At the edge its big steep rocks but with some agility the kids made there way down to fish.

Enjoying the deck and view made the whole vacation. 5 stars. Thank you for letting us enjoy your house for the week.

Beautiful view from the house, excellent accommodations amd close to sites

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family vacation. We couldn't have asked for anything better. There were eleven of us and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The house was well equipped and the beds were so comfortable. The kids loved exploring the property. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the Halifax area.

Amazing home and view

  • 5 of 5

This is really an amazing home. It is beautifully designed in a modern style with windows everywhere to take advantage of spectacular 360 degree view of the water and countryside. With 5 bedrooms on 3 floors, there is a lot of room to spread out and relax -- great for family groups to spend time together while still having some privacy. The kitchen is very well stocked, there are plenty of linens and after a trip to a grocery store, you could just spend a week at the house gazing at the amazing view and enjoying this beautiful home. But, you should "force" yourself to leave at least to see Peggy's Cove a few minutes away or to explore the harbour and grab a gourmet meal in Halifax (about 35 minutes away). We also recommend hiking the less crowded Polly's Cove on the way to Peggy's Cove.

Other things we enjoyed about the home were the foosball table, the jetted tub, the workout equipment, the firepit outside where we made smores, and the short walk on the gorgeous private path to the water. The path leads right to the water but ends at a rocky overlook so there is no actual ability to swim at the property (which was ok with us since the water was about 50 degrees in early July!). We saw deer and pheasant on the property and nearby. We didn't watch much TV but the house has great service and we caught a CFL game one night.

We highly recommend this gorgeous and unique home.

An outstanding and beautiful home for a memorable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a cousins' vacation at the end of August 2016. There were three couples-two from Alberta and one from Scotland.

The home is just as pictured and described in the VRBO site. A beautiful property that sits on a rocky bluff looking out at the ocean from every level. Even from the bedroom on the lower walk-out level, you have a view of the ocean.

The home is extremely comfortable and has every amenity one would want. For our group, each couple had their own floor for sleeping, which was like being in a boutique hotel.

Spacious and beautiful throughout, a large deck looking onto the ocean, a patio and fire pit below, and winding paths down to the water-everything one could want to enjoy this beautiful location about 5 minutes from Peggy's Cove, very private and quiet. For anyone who wants a tranquil place to re-charge their batteries-walking, reading, relaxing on the deck or patio, or for a group who want to have fun together and travel the beautiful coast of Nova Scotia ---this is definitely the place!

About 30 minutes from Halifax, a great city to visit, especially the boardwalk; five minutes to Peggy's Cove, about an hour to Lunenberg and Mahone Bay, the location allows for lovely coastal drives, with some great restaurants, quaint shops, and many stopping points to take in the ocean views.

We highly recommend this home!

Beautiful house. Gorgeous setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and full of light. The windows provide 180 degree views of the ocean and the rugged Nova Scotia terrain.

We had 3 couples, who each selected bedrooms on separate floors, so we had plenty of privacy. When we were together, the living areas and outdoor spaces were large and comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked many meals there. We also enjoyed using the grill.

The house was very clean.

We may have to return in the future!!
