Neil and Darlene Pryde invite you to enjoy their circa 1899 seaside home on the peaceful waters of the Chester Basin. They have just completed a total professional restoration through which the original trim and style was either retained or painstakingly recreated. You will feel like a successful sea captain from the age of sail. The captain though now enjoys a 50" flat screen in the movie room, a new washer/dryer stack and glass corner shower unit besides his original clawfoot tub, and his kitchen/pantry now is a full kitchen/breakfast nook opening onto the Bali room and further opening out the garden doors onto the side lawn...all with views of the ocean. In fact 180 degree views of the Chester Basin and countless islands, mostly deserted, many with fabulous beaches. The closest is just a swim away. There are no rips or undertows, currents to worry about. The house is halfway between Chester and Mahone Bay with all the restaurants, golf courses and services of these two top rated south shore towns. Bring the dog, your horse, your bikes, or at least good walking shoes as the "tracks to trails" runs through the forest just behing the house. It is a groomed level exrailway bed managed by the municipality across the province. The perfect way to experience Nova Scotias forest.
The moonrise/sunrise directly in front of the house will stop time for a moment you will never forget. When the sun sets it illuminates the islands giving the illusion they are floating above the ocean. Welcome to the south shore. Enjoy the Islands In The Sun.
