WALLACE, NS – SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 – New luxury residential opportunities at Fox Harb’r Resort ( are expanding with the launch of a secluded waterfront enclave of single-level homes called Marina Landing.
Perched on a hillside with unobstructed views overlooking the marina, lighthouse and the Northumberland Strait, these residences are designed and situated to make the most of spectacular North Shore sunsets.
Launching this month, this addition to the Resort’s real estate offerings features 12 luxury homes: five 4-bedroom designs at 2,455 square feet (including the garage); and seven 2-bedroom and den layouts at 1,810 square feet.
The development is a significant next phase of the long term development of Fox Harb’r founder Ron Joyce. After co-founding Tim Horton’s and creating Jetport Inc., an aviation company, this visionary entrepreneur recognized the potential in the 1,100-acre property that was to become Fox Harb’r Resort. With the help of locals, he took the site and created an 18-hole championship golf course, an airport runway, residences and many resort amenities. His vision has translated into a boost for the local economy and tourism.
Marina Landing is the first new real estate development at Fox Harb’r in the past 10 years.
“People know Fox Harb’r for its award-winning championship golf course, spa, luxurious accommodations, sport shooting and sumptuous dining, and our efforts to add horseback riding and kayaking to the amenity mix make this community even more fun for guests and residents. Marina Landing is perfect for those seeking single-level resort living in a 5-Star environment,” said Kevin Toth, President of Fox Harb’r.
Fox Harb’r Real Estate Sales Manager Eric Lum said, “The homes in Marina Landing have a smaller footprint than those we have previously built and sold here, because we were often asked for choices in these sizes. They are still very generous in square footage, because our owners enjoy the carefree resort lifestyle here, and love to entertain. These new homes will be more manageable for those who travel, because they can simply lock the door and leave worry free.”
Exteriors of Marina Landing’s 2-bedroom homes and 4-bedroom designs will feature natural stone, with broad decks that span their width. Sizes range from 1,810 to 2,455 square feet, with open-concept living spaces that invite both elegant and casual entertaining. Interiors will be graced with contemporary finishings, and each bedroom features an ensuite bath.
Peter Connell, Managing Director of Halifax-based DSRA Architecture said, “Fox Harb’r was looking for something different from their existing residence and rental holdings. They were looking for a more modern and appealing look to a wider demographic and new development that would strengthen a sense of community.
“Our design approach was driven exclusively by the rustic, wind-swept shores of northern Nova Scotia which offer unmatched natural beauty, set against the powerful elements of the Northumberland Strait. The rural vernacular and character of this region is one of practicality and modesty, much like the people who have farmed and fished this fertile coastline for centuries,” Connell added.
“Working with the Fox Harb’r team, we developed a simple wedge-like form as the basis for the villa designs. The high and low form responds to the functional space needs and creates a visual tension in the landscape. The form is carved away in areas to create transparency, shelter, and openness. The repeated forms seem to gather and nestle into the landscape like mollusks. They sit low and quiet, clad in weathered natural materials. Each villa has unique architectural differences, but collectively they form a family. The villas seem settled in the land, offering leisure and retreat along a blustery coastline, and framed views to a majestic ocean setting,” he said.
Add Design Agency Principal & Founding Partner, Matt Davis, “We envisioned Fox Harb’r with thoughtful selections of materials that speak to its surroundings. The interiors reflect two concepts. ‘Tailored + Fresh’ is about unique tailored details and an approachable ambience. Using natural warm toned woods, Beadboard and local stone, the space pays tribute to the coastal environment. ‘Polished + Atmospheric’ highlights contrasting materials, light and dark woods, dark soapstone countertops and brass detailing to create a dramatic and luxurious atmosphere. Both designs demonstrate a comfortable and homey residential experience, celebrating the cultures of Nova Scotia.”
Homeowners will have access to the many activities the resort offers including a deep-water marina, the 18-hole championship golf course, Dol-á Spa, fine dining, sporting clays, vineyards, horseback riding, a health and fitness centre, and a 5,000-foot jetway. A day in the life of an owner can take on whatever he/she likes: going for a jog or bike ride around the scenic property, playing nine holes of golf, meeting friends for lunch, unwinding at the spa … the possibilities are fascinating and fun.
The perks of owning at Marina Landing also span the globe, as owners receive membership in Pacific Links International for special opportunities at golf in courses around the world. In addition, during the first three years of ownership, residents are entitled to a complimentary one-week stay in a 1-bedroom, ocean-view suite at Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands, a prestigious private Caribbean destination.
Lum said, “Only a few homes are available in Marina Landing so now is the time to learn how you can own one of these superb residences and become part of Fox Harb’r, an established, thriving community where social gatherings and activities keep neighbours engaged and happy.
