Welcome to this historic, one of a kind homestead nestled in the peaceful North Shore community of Seaview. Only minutes away from our world class beaches and coastline between Malpeque and French River. This is the original Prince Edward Island home of John Sinclair Sutherland, who arrived to the Island from Scotland in the early 1840's. Over the years, renowned author Lucy Maud Montgomery spent significant time here while visiting her relatives on the Sutherland side of the family. The 4,200 sq.ft. house showcases old-time carpentry methods and an original staircase, woodworking, and doors and trims. Beginning in late 2017, the building underwent major renovation work that saved the original structure from collapsing. Further work included, completely stripping back the interior, new roofing and shingles, new entry doors, front veranda, and repairing all windows, sashes and glass panes. A complete list of the work performed is available by request. Recently featured in local news articles, this piece of Prince Edward Island history is ready for a new vision - bed and breakfast, classically appointed inn or suites, historic summer heritage home - there are countless oppportunities. This property was historically known as "Melrose Cottage" as pictured in Meacham's 1880 Atlas of Prince Edward Island http://www.islandimagined.ca/fedora/repository/imagined%3A208984 Further property notes and list of improvements available.
