8580 Peggy's Cove Road, Indian Harbour (MLS® 201806282): Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover: Beneath its unpolished exterior, this historic Indian Harbour home is chock full of surprises. Jacked up and reset on a new foundation, the walkout basement boasts tall ceilings and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the mouth of St. Margaret’s Bay. Both structurally and mechanically — with its updated furnace, roof, electrical and plumbing, as well as its high-end windows and doors — the home could easily be mistaken for something much newer. But the beautiful decorative touches, both inside and out, have been faithfully chosen to dignify a long-gone era, all of which strike a perfect balance between old and new. From the antique light fixtures and the old plank floors, to the cozy den with Vermont Castings wood stove, the home feels warm and inviting. It could certainly benefit from a few further upgrades, including kitchen, bathrooms, landscaping and paint, but the important work has been done, and done well. Located just 40 minutes from downtown Halifax, not far from Peggy’s Cove, the location is superb, and the views nothing short of breathtaking.
