Rare south west facing oceanfront home on exclusive Marvins Island which is accessed from the mainland over a causeway. At last, a very comfortable 1750 square foot, energy efficient, newly ICF constructed 2015 modern home. Sited to optimize the scenic views of the ocean from all the main rooms, the elevation allows for a plenty of light filled spaces. The property features a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a den, powder room, and laundry, all on the main floor. An open concept living room and kitchen with cantilevered windows add to the well conceived architectural detail. Tall nine foot ceilings and expansive windows on the lower level with full water views accentuate the additional space. A large family room with kitchenette is a perfect addition for family or guest quarters. Two generous bedrooms and a full bath complete the layout. A large outbuilding could be converted into a boathouse, games room, or a guest Bunkie. Perhaps all three! A 65 foot wharf, sandy beach and sunset oceanfront patio completes the property. The protected bay and deep water anchorage is perfect for a sailboat mooring. For the kayaking enthusiast, a world of accessible Mahone Bay islands are within reach. Nearby Rum Runners bike and walking trail runs east to Chester or west to Mahone Bay. There is an additional interior wildlife preserve of Marvins Island with walking trails. A natural oasis under the protection of the home owners association. The location is a short stroll to the Seaside Shanty Restaurant where foodies congregate, and minutes to the public wharf. Chester Basin has a Pharmacy, Post Office, and a full service marina is nearby. A local children’s playground is within close proximity as well. A short 8 km drive to the village of Chester, and under an hour to Halifax or the airport.
