For folks who aren’t quite ready to bid adieu to summer, here’s an excuse to take one last trip to our northern neighbors before autumn’s glorious arrival.
Located on Shobac Estate in Nova Scotia, Canada, this steel-clad cabin perches on a beachside cliff and combines the simplicity of farm life with modern flourishes. Enough House, as it’s called, sits comfortably amid 18th-century architecture, like the 1880-built octagonal Troop Barn and the Cheboque School House from 1830, and features a modern Corten steel exterior while its interiors are all warm wood beams and floors.
The two-story house was designed by Brian MacKay-Lyons and accommodates up to five people on two queen beds and a single, and boasts a wood-burning furnace, large pasture-framing corner window, and another beach-facing one on the opposite side. Two separate courtyards offer a chance to enjoy the serene landscape, one by the glow of an open fire pit. It’s available to rent via PlansMatter.
