About 137 Gannet Lane

Just a short 20 minute drive outside of Halifax this spectacular and unique home is surrounded by the most astonishingly beautiful scenery where the coastal barrens give way to rugged granite cliffs, pounded by the Atlantic surf. Overlooking the Atlantic, this ‘one of a kind’ contemporary residence is located on a private 2.7 acre estate that includes 550 ft of rugged oceanfront bordering 1800 acres of pristine Crown Land. This modern 6,790 sq ft masterpiece of concrete, steel, stone and glass offers breathtaking 360 degree views and was once a WWII observation tower strategically positioned to guard the coast and Halifax Harbour. Renowned designer Erla Laurie came upon the abandoned military installation and was inspired to make it her home. This iconic residence includes a main level open concept floor plan designed with entertaining in mind. The great room with its 20’ walls of glass and soaring ceiling is the main focal point of the main level and provides access to the outdoor terraces and the enchanting, ‘ocean view’ infinity pool.
