Welcome to River House - our newly constructed waterside retreat, set in 5 acres with panoramic views of and private access to the scenic West River.
Sleeps 6-8. 1,700 sq.ft (158 sq.m), 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom house.
River House is situated at the end of West River Drive, Durham, Pictou County, and set within a waterfrontage totalling 700 feet.

The property is approached by a sweeping 400’ private drive and features unencumbered views and access to the West River.
With over 1700 square feet, and the main living space being largely open plan, this gracious home features vaulted ceilings throughout, three sets of double sliding doors facing the West River and a 14’x16’ custom built sun room off the dining area accessed via sliding doors. There is also a 16'x34' deck overlooking the river, which is accessible from the living room, sun room and master bedroom.
“River House” is the perfect spot to relax and unwind, yet only a short drive to all the Pictou County towns – approximately 10 minutes to Pictou, 15 minutes to New Glasgow, Stellarton, Westville and Trenton and all of their neighbouring communities.
3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, so perfect for families who wish to spend some time exploring the beautiful Northumberland Shore, but also close enough to access Cape Breton, Halifax, and of course, Prince Edward Island. Waterside and Caribou are two of our favourite beaches/provincial parks and they are both less than a 15 minute drive away.
Also in the neighbouring towns are many shops and amenities, including theatre, cinema, many restaurants, coffee shops, various grocery stores and many large and independent shops.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and a large kitchen island seating 4-6 comfortably. The stove has 5 burners with a built-in microwave above and there is a coffee maker, kettle, toaster and blender available.
