Inspired design…this Kingsburg oceanfront property is a truly unique pairing of setting and structure.  This 150 year-old country church represents a masterpiece of historic preservation and modern ingenuity.  For nearly a century and a half the village of Hadleyville in Guysborough County congregated beneath the vaulted ceilings of Holy Trinity Church.

 In 2002 the church was carefully dismantled, moved, and thoughtfully reconstructed as an elegant residence on 6.13 private acres at the tip of beautiful Kingsburg Beach in Lunenburg County. (see a slideshow of this remarkable project here!).

In its new home nearly 400 km away, the historic structure continues to provide a marvelous gathering space.  A visual delight inside and out, abundant with architectural detail and quality finishes, the home is perfectly positioned with every room enjoying beach or ocean views and tall diamond-paned gothic windows infusing the interior with natural light.

For culinary aficionados, the kitchen appropriately occupies the alter, while Dining and Living room areas share an open plan in the nave under awe inspiring hand-hewn beams and towering cathedral ceilings.  The Bedroom suite on the main level features great views, full ensuite and walk-in closet.  

The choir loft/gallery with its own full bath provides a non-traditional sleeping space for overnight guests.  And, for those who want to slumber a little closer to the stars, the Bell Tower Bedroom serves as a heavenly space offering panoramic views of Kingsburg village and its sandy beach, the dramatic cliffs of Rose Head, and the majestic open Atlantic beyond.

Outside, hardy perennial gardens integrate with natural plantings and cradle the home while expansive decking links the main house with the charming 3-season guest Bunkie with sleeping loft and ocean view balcony.  A toasty woodstove creates a cozy atmosphere during the shoulder seasons.

Stroll from the deck down to your 245 feet of slate ledge shore frontage.  Or take a walk on one of the woodland trails that wind through your 6 plus acres of unadulterated nature.  As you explore the trails you’ll come upon the secret Gardener’s Cottage — a rustic hideaway tucked back into the woods with protected raised beds for your annuals and vegetables.  A small barn originally built for horses now serves as s single car garage or large shed for your gardening or beach combing apparatus.

Without exaggeration, this is simply a special property. 

Has it been a while since you’ve been to church?…feeling like you need to get closer to heaven?…perhaps it’s time for ‘Your’ Revival!
