One-of-a-kind, Strum Island Estate

This one-of-a-kind, majestic escape is surrounded by nature’s unspoiled beauty in the heart of Mahone Bay along the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. Strum Island is “an unparalleled retreat, in a stunning location that for many visitors is regarded as the ‘new Martha’s Vineyard,’” says listing agent Mariana Cowan of Coldwell Banker Supercity. The six-bedroom, six-and-one-half-bath main home comprises two stories of living space with an expansive third-floor master suite and lounge, a walnut-carved bar in the open interior, a media room, exercise area and an impressive kitchen that will satisfy the burgeoning menu of a budding master chef or the private musings of an intimate, weekend brunch. “My favorite room of the house is the third-floor observation room which offers spectacular 360-degree views of the Mahone Bay,” says Cowan. “Dotted with picturesque islands, it’s the perfect place to watch the world go by, enjoy the spectacle of the many sail boats that frequent the bay and admire the picture-perfect town of Mahone Bay from, unquestionably, the best seat in the house.”

Additionally, outdoor entertaining spaces are aplenty with Strum Island. “Unlike anything else, the Lobster Temple has to be the ultimate gathering spot,” says Cowan. “It features a built-in granite table with an expansive, open fireplace complete with a lobster pot arm.” Listed at $2 million CDN per fractional share, the property is an unparalleled retreat and includes unique architecture, a coastline location, privacy and security. “Although the floor plan is expansive, it has a wonderfully cozy feel and a relaxed charm,” says Cowan. “The combination of the stone and the cedar not only ensure this home is a home for all seasons, but it helps create a natural ambiance that embraces you from the time you enter.” For more information, visit
