Conveniently located in the heart of Mahone Bay, Strum Island is a unique getaway with panoramic views and custom-built accommodations. Come experience ten acres of serene beauty and 9,500 square feet of impressively built architecture. The South Shore of Nova Scotia is immensely popular with sailors and sightseers alike where they find multiple outlets for recreation such as hiking and boating and opportunities to experience the charming culture during events like the Bluenose Celebration and the Tall Ships Festival. One hour from the Halifax International Airport and 45 minutes from Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay is a quaint and historic village where the locals are famous for their warm hospitality. Main Street is dotted with a variety of restaurants and shops, outdoor plazas, a marina, and most famously, the fabled church spires. Situated around the enchanting towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay, Strum Island' s landscape has been carefully restored by the owner with native vegetation ' some 50,000 plants ' in order to preserve its natural setting, he also installed a new sea wall to prevent erosion. Built in two phases in the last four-plus years, the six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom Strum Island home comprises two stories of living space and an expansive third-floor master lounge. A fourth-floor observation tower has spectacular 360-degree views. Above this is a traditional light-house-inspired widow's walk. Furniture-grade standards are incorporated into the home's super-sturdy construction. The open interior includes a one-of-a kind walnut-carved bar, media room, exercise area and a richly finished kitchen that will satisfy the entertainment needs for large and small groups. The attention to kitchen details is particularly impressive, and this commitment to design intricacy continues throughout the home. The ultimate in outdoor entertainment area, the 'Lobster Temple,' features a built-in granite table and expansive/grandeur wood-burning fireplace. In addition, 4,500 square feet of covered and uncovered decks and patios add to the comforts of outdoor gatherings. A short walk away from the main house is Rose Hut, the island's island getaway, with views everywhere, changing with the tides, changing by the minute. Arrive by air, to the island helipad, or by water from the mainland, just 1,750 feet away. The island's 105-foot-long wharf of pressure-treated wood and concrete accommodates a variety of watercraft, and a boathouse has second-story quarters for a caretaker/maid/cook. On the mainland is a 100-foot-long concrete wharf. Here, a 1.67-acre parcel has been set aside for another boathouse and home, if the new owner desires. Services are either in place or have been approved. Enjoy the boating, fishing and hiking opportunities on the mainland or the serene sandy beach and inspiring greenery on Strum Island. Strum Island is connected to the mainland for services but it is self-sustaining if these are disrupted. Fresh drinking water is supplied by an aquifer accessed by a well, and electrical generators provide the power. Made almost entirely of granite, the residence integrates western red cedar, slate roofing, copper flashing, a stone roof and impact glass to efficiently mitigate the elements and require a minimal amount of maintenance, the home was built to strict Dade County, Fla., codes. When you're away, a state-of-the-art security system monitors the home, which can be controlled remotely from any part of the world via computer, IPad or smartphone. The uniqueness of its architecture, the numerable features and amenities, coastline location, and the privacy, security and peace it affords make Strum Island an unparalleled retreat, surrounded by the beauty and grandeur of the Atlantic Ocean.
