Whispering Woods is a twenty-six acre woodland sat in an idyllic sport at the bottom of the world famous Bras d'Or lakes. Each property sits within its own secluded woodland and to the north of the development there are fifteen acres of untouched woodland for you to discover at your leisure.

Although secluded you are not isolated. The town of Port Hawkesbury is just 17km away. The town has an array of shops, places to eat and entertainment on offer. Additionally 10km is the smaller town of Louisdale, where you can take in the harbour views of the Great lakes and enjoy a spot of lunch. Further North lies Sydney (1 ½ hours), The Cabot Trail and Halifax airport being just two hours away.

New homes should not just be desirable, they should also enhance our lives and their surroundings. Eco-friendly doesn't mean basic. Luxury doesn't have to come at a cost. It can be as a result of careful planning. Attention has been taken to ensure that every detail, no matter how small, has been given consideration.

The Result? Greater comfort in a living, breathing home.

On entry you will immediately notice the spacious and light environment whilst remaining warm and homely. To the front the accommodation there is a large open plan living area complete with fully functioning kitchen, wood burning stove and all the benefits of modern living. Through the hall there are two double bedrooms complete with French doors allowing you access to the Roof Garden and a bathroom complete with bath and shower.

To the outside you are encased in woodland allowing you to enjoy your home in complete privacy. On the first floor there is a roof garden offering over 900 square feet of lawned grass, ideal for entertaining friends or simply relaxing alone.


A timber frame wrapped in traditional straw bale both on external and internal walls covered in a thick clay and lime render. A living grass roof system is installed with stairway access from the east of the building.
Each system is designed to reduce the impact on the environment.

Eastern White Pine Frame

Made from sustainable woodlands timber frames remain the choice material for residential dwellings. Our design allows for exposed beams to add a real feature to your home.

Straw Bale Walls

From an easily replenished source that allows the property to breathe. Straw bale acts as a temperature regulator ensuring that the property is both cool in the summer yet warm in the winter. Additionally, straw bale offers increased noise reduction.

Hardwood Flooring

Kiln treated Spruce floors are found throughout the property, some of which has been harvested right here in Whispering Woods, making use of abundant wood supply on site.

Roof Garden

This is the real masterpiece giving over 900 square foot of fully grassed garden area. The building can breathe from the top down whilst giving great benefit to the environment through carbon reduction and storm water run-off to name just two.
