A timeless piece of local history, surrounded by water on the shores of Dublin Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The original post masters home, with the old postal building and other outbuildings still on the site, adding charm and character to this iconic setting. Bordered on the back by crown land, on one side Dublin Bay and the Atlantic Ocean the other, this IS that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The house will draw you in, standing tall for over 100years and longing for someone to breath life into her again, but it's the location that keeps your attention. Just past the areas famous white's sands of Crescent Beach and right before you pass the causeway onto Bell Island, the old fish shack greets you at the base of the property. A long-time fisherman's residence, in a popular fishing village on Nova Scotia's East Coast, make this a desirable ocean side retreat. The home has 4 bedrooms, 1 full bath, a classic front porch and of course loads of original trim work and moldings, a project for a craftsman. So much to see and do in this area, from card party, dances at the local hall to white sand beaches, farmers markets and much more, it would make a wonderful year- round home or seasonal escape.

    Looks almost like an Amish farm from the exterior. What a beautiful area but bet it’s a bear to heat.

    Well, as long as the bones are good, I see no reason why someone with either deep pockets or deep pockets and a ton of elbow grease wouldn’t want this house. Great location-for the summer, and it’d be great to sit on either the porch or balcony with the Sunday paper and some coffee, watching the world go by. I wonder what the weather is like, right on the water, in the winter? MAybe some good insulation would be worth it!

      I’m so puzzled by the almost flat roof. I always thought heavy snow loads required a steep pitched roof. This one looks like a beach house down on the gulf coast.

    The nice thing about imaginary summer homes is they can be shared ☺

    I don’t know what the rules/regulations are for purchasing property there, but I do know that there quite a few ex-pats living there. A friend who spent her honeymoon there said it is a fairly expensive place to live, but she loved it.
    Peeweebc I agree with you! My first thought was about insulation. Being on the water could be windy and damp.

    This is such a beautiful,unspoiled property, the house is fantastic, I would not change much, perhaps some paint or wall paper and refinish the floors, and add a shower to the bath. Perhaps there is insulation already, after all people did live here year round. As the write up states this home is located on the east coast of Nova Scotia, it would benefit from the relative warmer waters of the Gulf Stream. The roof style is a very low profile hip roof. You will see examples of this type of roof in Maine along the coast. I believe the Olson house in Cushing, Maine had this type of roof until one of Christina Olson’s ancestors Capt. Samuel Hathorn IV in 1871 changed it to the steep pitched roof it has today and is shown depicted in the painting “Christina’s World” by Andrew Wyeth.
    This house and the area reminds me of Maine as seen in old George French and Kosti Ruohomaa photos of the 1940’s and 50’s, which for the most part is gone.

    …if only my husband was a handyman and would move. The area is beautiful. 15 hundred sq ft is not a lot of footage to heat.
