11 Glencairn Lane, Herring Cove, NS (MLS® 202310589): Just 15 minutes to Halifax, The Kutcher Residence by award-winning architect Bryan MacKay-Lyons is a remarkable architectural marvel. The home hovers above a massive granite boulder, offering a serene retreat with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. The design harmonizes with the natural surroundings, featuring a roof made of standing-seam Galvalume metal that gracefully folds down towards the forested northern side, while the southern facade is entirely glazed, providing unobstructed panoramic views. As you approach the property, you are invited through a portal that takes you to a protected courtyard – a transition from the natural landscape to the sea. The residence follows the principles of Feng Shui, incorporating an indirect entry sequence that gradually immerses visitors in the architectural experience. The centerpiece is a 10-foot floor-to-ceiling glass wall that wraps around, framing the captivating outlook of passing supertankers and ships. The passive solar approach maximizes natural light and warmth through expansive glazing and hydronic heating in the concrete flooring. The open plan stretches across the main living, dining, and kitchen areas, bookended by two large fireplaces that create balance and focal points for gathering. The curtain glass windows further enhance the connection to the water, seamlessly merging the horizon line with the interior environment. The Kutcher House is quite simply, majestic.
