GRACE SEA A contemporary masterpiece, this home offers a soothing and casual elegance. Sitting comfortably on a completely private 5 acre hilltop estate in Kingsburg, with close to 500 ft. of direct waterfront, the 3,400 sq.ft. house enjoys one of the greatest oceanfront views in Nova Scotia - south west along the length of Hirtles Beach to the Nature Conservancy’s famous Gaff Point. The house is set slightly apart from the surrounding evergreen forest by lawns, flowering shrubs, decorative grasses, four patios, a pebble garden, walkways and a retaining wall of granite boulders. The house features a spacious Caravaggio marble entrance foyer, opening unto a spectacular Great Room with 12 foot high arched ceiling and a 50 foot long wall of floor length windows. The Great Room contains the living area, with its imposing white split face quartz chimney and Stuv high efficiency wood burning fireplace, the dining area and the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen, with its large island, a Bertozzoni gas range and other high end appliances, leaves nothing to be desired. Throughout the house the attractive and unique plank flooring is engineered tongue and groove Nikzad Oak, imported from France. In addition to the main living areas, there are three bedrooms, a family room, a dressing room, 3 ½ bathrooms and laundry room/bar all situated on the main floor. The walls and floor of the large ensuite bath in the master bedroom are marble, matching that on the floor of the foyer and the front face of the kitchen island. The glazed second floor area, accessed by a unique cantilevered white Caesar Stone staircase, has a large private deck and would be ideal as an office/studio/library/den or a guest bedroom. The exterior cladding is white Cape Cod Siding. The exterior doors and fenestration meet the highest specifications. The gently arched roofline is clad with a maintenance free, standing seam metal roof. (It resembles the back of a surfacing blue whale.) The property comes complete with a free standing, heated and wired outbuilding It features three overhead garage doors, measuring 43 ft. x 25 ft. The relationship of the outbuilding to the house results in direct access from one building to the other via a secluded courtyard. Grace Sea has twice been the subject of a feature story in Style at Home magazine. The attention to every architectural detail and the quality of the materials in this home will more than satisfy the most discriminating taste. 20 minutes from the great restaurants, shops and Victorian charms of Old Town Lunenburg and 90 minutes from the Halifax International Airport. Halifax is less than 90 minutes from New York, less than 2 hours from Toronto and +/- 6 hours from London.
