This exquisite 4 bed, 3 bath home is nestled in a quite inlet in the Bay of Fundy on Deer Island, New Brunswick, Canada. It sits only one mile from the Maine, US boarder, and is a mere seven-hour drive from Boston, Massachusetts, US. Access to the Island is made via a 20-minute ferry ride.
Located on a historic reconstructed wharf, this home has been totally remodeled and expanded to 4000 square feet of luxurious ocean view space. Enjoy unparalleled views of sunset, St. Helena's Island, fishing boats and diverse marine life from the sizeable first and second floor wrap-around decks.
The first floor contains the recreated and historic "Butler's Store" and "Post Office" (please refer to the "History" section below), and a large open space perfect for events and family gatherings. From there you proceed to the first and second of four bedrooms, both with a view of the ocean on two and three sides. Further down you are warmly welcomed into a gorgeous solarium, which gives you an unparalleled view of the ocean.
Access the second floor by elevator or stairs, which lead into the great room that houses the kitchen, dining and living areas. As you proceed down the grand hallway you will pass the laundry room, master bedroom and ensuite. At the end of the hall you will arrive at the fourth and final bedroom, furnished with beds and bunk beds suitable for 12 people. The fourth bedroom has it's own full bath, as well as a computer room that is hidden behind a bookshelf deigned to open like a door.
There is a 5900 square foot parcel of land just to the west of the house that is included in the purchase price. This parcel is nicely elevated, provides incredible views of the ocean, and is lined with mature trees.
Periodically, this home has been made available to the long line of visitors wishing to use it as a short-term vacation rental at a cost of $2500.00 USD per week. Short-term rental is a great option for those not living in the home year round, and also lends itself easily to other business opportunities and development such as a spa or bed and breakfast.
Included with the property are, all furniture, linens, kitchenware, appliances, patio furniture and pool table. Some personal items with sentimental value will not be included. A complete list of reserved items will be included in the purchase and sale agreement.
During the restoration of this property the owners incorporated some of the original historical aspects of the building, which has enhanced the overall character of the property.
At one time, Canada Post served the surrounding communities from this building. In the late 1800's this building housed Butler's General Store. Butler's supplied everything needed to everyone on the island, including the local fishing industry. In 1991, Marvin and Jeanette Newman purchased the building and established Deer Island Sea Urchins, a Sea Urchin processing plant that employed over 50 people and won many awards for excellence in business.
The store and post office have been lovingly recreated in the main floor of the home as homage to the history of the building, the hardworking people who have graced its steps, and to the Island itself.
