About 43 Camperdown Road

This 3 bedroom, 3 bath luxury home, with commanding views of the shipping lanes to Halifax, was home to the Commanding Officer of historic Camperdown Signal Station in Portuguese Cove. Situated at the crest of the highest hill in Halifax, the property overlooks the village and has views in all directions, key to the war time defence of the city ever since the site was selected by the Duke of Kent in the 1790s. Today the views are for enjoyment … follow large Post-Panamax container ships as they arrive or depart, watch RCN ships conduct training exercises, or simply enjoy seeing pleasure craft criss-crossing in the brisk harbour breezes. The current owner purchased it in 1988. The original house was reimagined into 2600 square feet of fine living space by architect Chris Vonmolsen and craft-built in 1997 by luxury builder Special Projects Limited Faisal Forhart. The home faces east to the open Atlantic Ocean with classic '5 inches to the weather' cedar shingles and Hamptons-style water table board trim. New septic system in 2016; kitchen remodelled in 2016; new roof in 2022. Designed for entertaining, there's a main floor 32x22 Great Room leading to an open kitchen and dining room. The Principal Suite is a one-of-a-kind raftered cathedral masterpiece with a 5 pc ensuite including a steam shower. Wake to sunrise over the ocean; settle in for the evening as cruise liners parade their way to sea in evening departures from Halifax; enjoy an evening under a star-filled sky in the private court yard. Located in the city's new Coastal Luxury Estate District, just 20 minutes from Halifax and minutes from the white sands of Crystal Crescent Beach, this property must be seen to be appreciated.
