Does anything beat a waterfront property that's beautiful but not outrageously expensive? This Nova Scotia house is in a rare biosphere reserve and has direct ocean access. If that's not enough to make you want to pack your bags, wait until you see all it has to offer.
For just $530,000, this oceanfront property in Sable River, Nova Scotia could be yours.
Sitting on 4.3 acres of private land, the house is more than 1,500 square feet and boasts ocean views with light and airy interiors.
Inside, the walls are all wood treated with beeswax and chalk that was imported from Germany, giving off a natural vibe.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a sleeping loft off the great room and a fisher cabin for some extra space.
Not to be outdone by the natural-looking indoor space, there is a lot of amazing stuff outdoors.
There you get 540 feet of breathtaking coastline and a protected deepwater anchorage if you're a fan of sailing.
Plus, the property is in the Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve which is one of only 18 places in Canada to get that special UNESCO designation.
Biosphere Reserves are areas that combine conservation and sustainable development practices.
So there are tons of natural wonders to explore.
This place is great in the winter but it really shines in the summer.
You can start your days with the sun as it rises above the Atlantic Ocean.
The great room has 15-foot windows that look out to the ocean for spectacular views of the water.
There is also a massive wraparound deck that's basically an extension of the living space and perfect for morning coffee as the sun rises or a tasty seafood dinner at dusk.
Even though the ocean is right outside the back door, you can head to some of Nova Scotia's most beautiful beaches that are only a short drive away.
There are hiking trails at nearby Kejimkujik National Park Seaside and Thomas Raddall Provincial Park.
