Feltzen South Project
This 1.5 storey home was created on a small point of land protruding into Lunenburg Harbour and restricted in size to an existing foundation and new environmental restrictions. Within it’s modest open space concept, it is set up to captivate a view plane of the harbor and it’s rugged shore lines from every room, with hopes of catching a glimpse of the Bluenose as she sails by in her glory. The living area of the home enjoy the advantage of early morning sunrise to sunset light, while all of the 3 bedrooms enjoy either morning or evening light while the second storey bath room enjoys light most of the day.
