Sneak Preview – Part 2

And for the second installment of our “Sneak Preview” for the 2016 Annapolis Royal House & Garden Tour, I will give you a glimpse of the Fortier Mills properties in Annapolis Royal.

As mentioned in Sneak Preview – Part 1, I spent some time Wednesday touring the feature properties and chatting with our enthusiastic (and generous) homeowners. What a pleasure it was!

The Fortier Mills neighbourhood in Annapolis Royal is a very new residential development on lands that have a rich heritage. This land was once part of an area called “Hog Island” (although not a true island in nature) and was the location of the local gallows among other things. Then, more recently, when I was very young, it was the location of the Fortier Mill, known for making many things – most of us locals remember the skis and the children’s toys that were manufactured there.

But enough about the past – what is presently here is one of the most beautiful residential developments you will ever see, with a view second to none and a cul-de-sac that has to be the most beautiful ever created.

Here are a few photos to give you an idea of what awaits you there on Saturday:
