The Concrete House
A Nova Scotia cultural and artistic landmark.
Nova Scotia's most unique home
On the road to Halls Harbour, north of Kentville, is a delightful landmark in our cultural landscape. Known locally as the “concrete house with the deer in the yard,” this unique property is surrounded by concrete lawn sculptures of deer, a mountain lion, giant mushrooms, and other fanciful figures and furniture.
Inside, the house is as it was built: every surface lovingly fashioned from cement and finished smooth with paint.
A decorative instinct is evident from mantle to newel post, from chimney to dovecote—the impression is of a magical, sculpted cottage, tailor-made for an uncommon individual.
