The home is a custom built, one of a kind timber frame house located on 14 acres with your own private beach. The house was built by retired father and son (owner), making this a true labour of love. This was a 6 year endeavor/hobby for the two, starting from the raw log and sawing all timbers and materials on site. This includes all traditional joinery connected using wooden pegs, along with many other custom features. The home was completed in 2010 and has breathtaking views of Merigomish harbour which opens into the Northumberland Strait. The shallow entry waters make for safe and enjoyable swimming for all ages. During low tide, kids can run and have hours of fun exploring the sand bars and finding treasures. This house is perfect for enjoying morning coffees or evening cocktails on the deck overlooking the stunning ocean, taking long walks on your beach, watching your kids run on the picturesque sand bars or enjoying a BBQ with friends while watching the sun set low over the Merigomish Harbour. You won't regret spending a week away from it all in this beach front oasis.
