    Beautiful! Unfortunately there’s a large ‘Something’ directly behind the property.

      1901 Folk Victorian
      Chestatee, GA

      It’s a farm, a huge barn behind the home but it’s not part of the property.

    Wow, this is just breath taking. I need to leave Vancouver and get to the maritime provinces. Such beauty in location & home.

    Wow! Beautiful home. Love the crazy bird wallpaper in one of the bedrooms.

    My grandmother left PEI in the early twentieth century for the big city life. I wonder what PEI is like now….

    There are some hidden gems in America’s attic.
    This is certainly one of them. Just love the
    Craftsmanship of the wood floors.

    Beautiful and stylish! Love all the Anne of Green Gables stories! Not buying this house? “This is the most tragical thing that has ever happened to me!”

    What a beautiful house! Those floors are amazing. It’s in fabulous shape. My inner OHD wants an “older” kitchen, but other than that, the house is amazing and perfect. The gardens look gorgeous too. Love the wallpaper!!

    I would be there in a minute if I could! Love this house and location!

  10. AvatarMJ Gonzalez says: 15 comments

    I love how light and airy the bedrooms are. The wallpaper is tasteful, not gaudy like some I’ve seen. But the floors, oooooh, I have goosebumps all over!

    Our family home is on Prince Edward Island, was built in 1899. It is interesting to compare the similarities and distinctions. If interested, you can see photos, google Black Fox Manor.

    I can try to answer anyone’s specific questions about the island. It is an exquisite place with every kind of beach including the warmest ocean water north of the Carolinas. This phenomenon is due to the Gulf Stream which hits the Northumberland Strait, the water between the island and Nova Scotia. It’s the best swimming I’ve experienced, crystal clear and the water temperature is like your bathtub. Yes, really.

    The island has distinctive red soil as described in the Anne of Green Gables books. Most of the island is agricultural because of the nutrient rich soils. The unincorporated areas still look magical with prolific wildflowers throughout three seasons as described in the books.

    The winters can be mild through January because of the large bodies of water. But winters also can have heavy snowfall. We love the year round drama and the province has excellent snow removal.

    Celtic music is everywhere and many islanders are musicians. The largest school of piping (bagpipes) outside of the UK is here.

    The island is becoming better known. Paul McCartney has docked his boat all summer in the harbor because islanders don’t clamor around celebrities. The British royals visit and you can get up close. The island was William and Kate’s first trip abroad. David Letterman was here the week after his last The Late Show.

    Like many places, things are rapidly changing. Come save an old house!

      I absolutely love this house, and your description of the island makes me want to move there tomorrow! If only I could get my whole family—sisters and their families—to join me!

      Your description of this island makes me want to move there and soak in the warm, clear Ocean water as I listen to Celtic music. Two of my very favorite things! Thank you for your post!

      I’ve already had a long distance a love affair with PEI, but your description made me want to move there even more. Sounds like a paradise.

      I also love how many of us start hollering about Anne Shirley as soon as Kelly posts anything even remotely near PEI, much less in it. Lucy Maud Montgomery touched a lot of lives, didn’t she?

      • AvatarBlack Fox Manor says: 15 comments

        Anne of Green Gables was published in 1908, has since sold 50M copies in 36 languages. I unsuccessfully searched for the source I once read which credits the book as the most published in history second to the Bible. Possibly PR, even so, 50M is phenomenal.

        Heritage records indicate Lucy Maude Montgomery used to stay at our home when attending soirées at nearby Sir Andrew Macphail’s homestead.

        I have always felt some of her spirit remains here. We have towering century trees, European Lindens, outside our dining room windows and I often wonder if Lucy Maude may have contemplated them and the views toward the sea.

        The Macphail homestead is a national heritage site. Their master gardener says at the end of the 19th C, it was a tradition to plant pairs of these tress in front lawns of prominent homes. It’s fun to wonder what her thoughts and conversations in these rooms was like.

    The only thing that would make this house MORE PERFECT would be if it had a waterview. Then I would have to leave my family and friends and move to Canada. The description of PEI posted by someone here really makes it alluring. Love this house to pieces.

    • AvatarBlack Fox Manor says: 15 comments

      The island is crescent shaped, only 140 miles from tip to tip. Water views are everywhere and there is easy access to miles of beaches. Tourism claims nowhere on the island is more than 10 minutes from the shore. People here take all the water for granted.
