About 21 Herring Rock Road

A living example of mid-nineteenth century Cape Cod houses in Lunenburg County, this could be the last opportunity for a discerning buyer to hold title to an iconic Blue Rocks home, and a substantial slice of Lunenburg history. Built to withstand the stormy, stark Atlantic climate, rescued in 1982 by the present owner, this circa 1850 house stands out for its simple understated beauty. By request, the listing agent will supply a long list of upgrades made over the years to the roof, foundation, sills, septic system, wiring, plumbing, windows, and chimney. A drilled well was added in 1990.The Herring Rock Road branches off from the Blue Rocks Road, just as you enter this storied hamlet, at a location featured in numerous photographs, paintings, and even quilt art. There is little vehicular traffic, lots of privacy, and an incomparable westerly view of Lunenburg Bay. Directly across the road is a 7,170 sq.-ft. waterfront lot with 240 feet of frontage encompassing a small beach and a dramatic rocky bluff - ideal for a studio or boathouse. Lunenburg is under ten minutes away, Halifax, just over an hour. This is the last of a breed. There are no more like it.
