What you should know about this house


Amenities and special features of this house

Tucked away in the trees above Osborne Harbour, Wind Song Cottage offers a private setting with sweeping views of the ocean, and a rich and colourful history. This charming 1853 C. home was originally built by an Irish ship captain using materials from an old schooner. The wide deck planks were used for flooring, and the ribs of the old ship were fashioned into rafters for the ceilings. At the turn of this century, the property was owned by local artist, Rebecca Tudor, internationally known for her pottery and creative tile work. She honoured the captain's work with the beautiful image of a schooner set in tile at the entryway to the home. The intricate tile work above the kitchen sink and in the main floor bathroom is also a display of her artistry. The current owners made their mark by having skilled craftsmen restore the back end of the home, creating a lovely dining room that opens into a screened-in porch for enjoying the garden and ocean views. The restoration continued throughout the second level with four more bedrooms, two half bathrooms and a separate shower room. The main floor master bedroom with private ensuite was positioned to enjoy the morning sunrise, while the place for playful imaginations is up the rope handled stairs to the tall attic, where there is plenty of room for making childhood memories. The new greenhouse at the edge of the yard also bears a piece of history with stained glass windows on either end that were rescued from a local church that was destroyed by fire. Beyond the garden you'll find several paths to stroll down that lead to the waterfront on Lockeport Harbour and Osborne Harbour. For a change of pace, you'll enjoy the conveniences of the fishing community in the town of Lockport just 10 minutes away, with a charming grocer, restaurants and renowned white sand beaches. The property is being sold turnkey with the adjacent waterfront lot. Conveniently located only 2 hours drive from Halifax.
