Michael and I are retired professionals, and spend our time travelling between Ontario, Newfoundland and Florida with our 2 lucky dogs. Michael is a well known artist, who spends his time painting the endlessly beautiful Newfoundland landscapes, and selling them at the Peter Lewis gallery here in St. John's. I spend my time in Newfoundland, reading, baking, rug hooking and creating canvas floor mats.
As a child, I had the good fortune to spend my summers in Long Cove, where my ancestors first settled in the 1700's, a family of fishermen & master shipbuilders. Both the lure of the sea & the legendary warmth of the Newfoundlanders captured my heart early on, but the opportunity to become residents only presented itself, in 2007
My family settled in Trinity Bay in the 1700's. where the Newhook's were renowned ship builders. I spent many summers growing up with my aunts, uncles and cousins, and when this property became available, we jumped at the opportunity.
A short stroll to the fisherman's wharf, will many times yield the chance to buy fresh fish or lobster. On the way home, stop in at the general store for a cold bottle of wine. Then enjoy the sunset from your chaise lounge on the back deck....priceless!
Unique artists' studio with halogen lighting, inspirational ocean views & 8 foot professional easel. Enjoy complete privacy with 2 entirely separate buildings just steps away.
