The bluff has a commanding view to the south of the entrance to Indian Harbour which leads in to the Atlantic Ocean. To the immediate SE is an inlet which hosts a secluded white sand beach. The property is almost 6 acres in size and comprises the entire bluff area. It has approximately 1000 ft of water frontage. It is at the end of a deeded right of way, a distance of Ĺ kilometer from highway 211. The property is treed to the west and north and thus is completely private. The only house visible from the property is approximately 2 km along the shore to the east. It is considered that the view from Triford is one of the most spectacular to be found on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. The shorefront is comprised of rock ledges and is not subject to erosion from the waves and weather. Between the water and the house, built into the rock ledge, is a naturally formed, salt-water swimming pool. A pump is used to fill the pool from the ocean below. The area has abundant wildlife, waterfowl and fishes.

The house is of a very unique design, with a southern vista overlooking the ocean. The house is one of a kind, constructed to give the appearance of being on board the bridge of a ship, with the stability of being firmly on land.

The original house was constructed in 1973 with extensive renovations effected in 1995 and 2004.
