What a unique place to live! This house for sale in Nova Scotia has a coastal location, as well as a truly fascinating past. Once used as an observation tower during World War II, it's been transformed into a modern mansion with stunning views of the ocean.

Located in Duncans Cove, just a 20-minute drive outside of Halifax, this waterfront home really stands out from the natural landscape that surrounds it.

It's a unique looking place because it actually used to be an observation tower, strategically positioned there during WWII. It was used to guard the coast and Halifax Harbour.

So, the shape is different than your average house!

Despite what it was previously used for, it has been completely modernized and transformed into an extraordinary home.

The house is located right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and it sits on 2.7 acres of private land, with 550 feet of oceanfront.

It has a whopping 6,790 square feet of living space inside and has been created using concrete, steel, stone and glass.

This place is on the market for $3,795,000 and comes with four huge bedrooms and five impressive bathrooms.

Inside the house, the main level is an open concept space that was designed for entertaining.

The "great room" has a 20-foot wall of windows, that leads to the outdoor terraces and the infinity pool. With the unobstructed view, the ocean is always in sight.

The dining room has a feature wall that's entirely made out of marble, and the kitchen has an oversized eat-in island.

On the second floor, there's a library along with three bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a spa-like ensuite bathroom, a wet bar and a private rooftop deck, which includes a hot tub and wood-burning fireplace.

If that wasn't enough, an elevator links all of the levels to the top floor, where there is yet another rooftop deck. Talk about luxury!
