What about Nova Scotia?
Looking for a home — or a second home — near the water?
Located about 50 miles (90 km) southwest of Halifax, Lunenberg and its surrounding communities apparently have an active second home market. Lunenberg’s “Old Town” was also named a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
According to the Times article, basic summer cottages in the area start at $150,000 Canadian dollars (US$135,000), but elaborate waterfront properties run CAD$1 to 2 million.
The sailing, as they say, is priceless.
