The White House, a registered heritage structure, was built between 1820 and 1830 by/for Irish immigrant William White and reflects traditional construction techniques employed by early Irish settlers in Newfoundland and the home was totally restored in 1994 by noted builder Garnet Kindervater and has been exceptionally well maintained by its current owner.  Of particular note is the large open fireplace, also known as an inglenook, which was contained within the center of the structure and is a very rare example of Irish vernacular construction in the region, complete with settle benches inside the fireplace. The kitchen includes a well-designed bump out overlooking the traditional garden area and piled stone walls that would have been removed from the fields by hand and horse by the early settlers. There is a half bathroom on main and full bathroom with a traditional cast iron bath tub on the second floor, along with the two bedrooms. The 2 acres, with tranquil stream, and mature grounds are extraordinary and extremely private, with a great diversity of trees and shrubs and land suitable for a variety of micro-farming pursuits. There is a wired and fully insulated out building and second accessory building, both of which can serve a variety of uses. Hikers will enjoy being only a 5 min walk from the world class East Coast Trail and a 10-minute walk to Beachy Cove. Come check this out as an option for your personal homestead or attractive Airbnb options. (id:18358)
