Acadian Sabbatical

I own a handsome well-maintained century home in a seaside village in southwestern Nova Scotia. I spend summers here and I'm looking for someone who needs peace and quiet during the winter. The entire furnished main floor would be yours, including a closed bedroom, a living room with wood stove, a large family room, a very large, equipped kitchen and laundry room, and a bathroom with separate tub and shower. There is plenty of room to set up a functional office and natural light for studio space. The use of an upstairs studio could also be negotiated (photo included).

The primary heating system is hot water radiators, fueled by oil. Typical winter temperatures here have run between plus 10 and minus 10 degrees celsius. Your utility costs will include oil and electricity, and firewood should you want to use the wood stove. The house is well-insulated and has thermal windows, and it's a good little stove that can quickly make your space very comfortable.

At the same time, it would be a comfort to me to know the house is occupied by a responsible person who appreciates its charm and the beauty of this peaceful place.

The house is on the main road, the old highway, fifteen minutes drive to the historic town of Yarmouth where there's a hospital, major stores and modern services. It's a five-minute walk to the corner store and post office, and a few metres more to our old-fashioned bakery and comprehensive school. A ten-minute walk gets you to a sensational beach. Another advantage is the proximity of good neighbours.
