    The street view from 2009 shows someone was living here as last as that. Did not find a build date but I imagine this could be anywhere from the 1850’s to 1880.

    Hope it doesn’t get bulldozed. This style has a certain quality to it that you expect to find in paintings and not in real life.

    I’m curious, are any of my readers shopping for a Canadian home?

    Looks like it was a beautiful home at one time, but certainly requires extensive repairs before it would be livable. So sad!

    Great opportunity for someone. Did anyone else think of Delores Clayborn’s house?

    This looks really sweet. A bit of land to stretch out, an old cottage to fix up with a water view and all for $29,000. Too bad they won’t let older Americans immigrate without lots of money. This election is bad, 2020 scares the hell out of me. This looks like a great alternative life to me.

    I kind of allowed it on this post, it was more general mentions so I let it slide but no politics please. 🙂

      OHD is the only place we can get away from politics. A nice quiet home to meditate on the past. Thank you Kelly. 🙂

      I’m not political at all, but wish I could buy that house, fix it up and live there. I am a US citizen in my retirement years.

      Thank You, Kelly!
      I love a good political debate, but this isn’t the place for it. As others have stated-that’s one of the reasons I love this blog-I come here to talk about beautiful houses and to get away from all the vitriol out in the real world!

    It’s paradise. I’ve done a lot of renovations. I’m looking for the last one. I would love to renovate and live here.

    As a Canadian living in Canada, it’s always fun to see a Canadian listing pop up:)

    Can’t a reverse snowbird buy a summer cottage in Canada? All the financial and medical insurance roadblocks seem unfair. I think there are Canadian Snowbirds here in St Augustine FL and they are most welcome.

      There are many Americans and other nationals who own houses, condominiums, cottages and other properties in Canada. For longer term stays proof of funds and private medical insurance is asked, which is just smart for visitors. No one is refused emergency medical attention.

    Thank you Mr. Doug for making that clarification. The policy seems sensible. So it seems I can still dream of a cottage in the Canadian Maritimes.

    I have done many complete overhauls like this one.
    It’s best to get a few bins ( although in these country towns you can get away with burning all the unwanted wood ) but bins for the plaster etc….
    All new plumbing and electrical . Me and one helper every day for 4 months she would look like a new penny.
