Why the Owner Chose Park Corner:: There are many attractions nearby, such as beaches, amusement parks, historic sites, art galleries, restaurants, and shopping; but the house is in a peaceful area on the north shore, overlooking farm fields and the Gulf of St Lawrence.
The Unique Benefits of this House:: Year Purchased: 2004 - We love the walks to nearby lighthouses (Cape Tryon and New London Lights). We also enjoy gardening in our well-established private garden (thanks to the previous owner). Our friends love having a golf course across the road. The kids love flying kites in our field, and our beagle loves walking the property with us. We have spotted whales in the Gulf from our deck, and often see bald eagles flying overhead.
Owner Description/Comments: : We fell in love with Prince Edward Island on our honeymoon in 1996, returned in 2001, and haven't missed a year since. PEI reminds us of how Martha's Vineyard used to be. When we bought Cape Tryon House in 2004, we wanted to preserve the island character of the house while completely updating, renovating, and adding extensive living space. We love the people of PEI; down-to-earth, hard-working, and very talented. We are both choral singers, and love the music, theater, and visual arts of PEI. We have a large extended family, and we love to share our home on PEI with them.
