Solterre Concept House

Region: Lunenburg Region

Located on a saltwater inlet on Second Peninsula near UNESCO’s own Lunenburg, the Concept House is a contemporary, award-winning off-grid sustainable retreat, designed by Solterre Design. A network of local craftsmen built this off-grid 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in 2012 that sets a new standard for self-sufficiency and provides a comfortable, open concept and eclectic space to host your vacation and family and friends. Or, the favorite aspect of the house? To simply gaze across the gently sloping pasture to the ocean.

The Concept House also received a Lieutenant Governor Award of Merit for architectural design.
