The Rope Loft is the quintessential Nova Scotia seaside restaurant with an abundance of opportunity. This iconic Chester property has incredible value, including tourist and marine possibilities and is zoned for multiple commercial operations and a residence. The ocean dream has never had so much potential. The Rope Loft's waterside deck ambiance is as compelling as its food. A landmark for both locals and visitors, the front harbour ocean views and laid back attitude perfectly suit the village pace. Located centrally next to the Tancook ferry dock, the Rope Loft features a majestic upstairs dining room and a cozy downstairs pub. Historically, the “Old Wharf” has been operational as a marina and a restaurant since the 1980’s. Built over two hundred years ago, the property is one of the oldest commercial buildings in Nova Scotia. A piece of Chester history resides within the solid oak construction of the building; the post and beam of the famed American privateer ship “Teaser”. A member of her crew blew the ship up, killing many of the crew, during the war of 1812, so the British would not capture the vessel. 4500 sq ft of commercial space compliments the 1300 foot waterfront residence, which is currently owner occupied. If running a restaurant is not your speed, then consider turning the entire building into a gorgeous waterfront residence, retaining some of the original character of hand-hewn beams, and providing immediate access to sailor’s paradise!
