Pickersgill Premises

Salvage, NL, Canada


Listed at $350,000 CAD

The Pickersgill Premises on Burdens Point, Salvage is a Registered Heritage Property of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It consists of two salt box houses and four outbuildings. The houses were built in 1912 and 1914 by the Burden and Dunn families at a time when Burdens Point was a bustling community of people who prosecuted the salt cod schooner fishery.

Salvage is one of the oldest permanently settled communities in Newfoundland. Several families continue to operate their fishing enterprises. It is among seven communities on the beautiful Eastport Peninsula where you can find sandy beaches, hiking trails, warm fresh-water ponds, and ever-friendly neighbours.

The contents of the buildings are included in the asking price. This comprises a large collection of vintage and antique furniture, paintings, prints, photographs, posters, maps and charts as well the dishes, cutlery, and all kitchen implements and appliances. The outbuildings contain many old tools related to the fishery, sealing, boat building, carpentry, agriculture, and the home arts.
A superb seasonal home best occupied from May until October. Think of icebergs, migrating birds, & lobsters in spring; whale watching, kayaking, & the northern lights in summer; berries, berries, berries in fall.

The possibilities for this property are numerous. A new business in adventure tourism. A retreat from the summer heat of mainland North American cities; a multi-generational compound; the peaceful place to edit your novel, finish your symphony, or paint that masterpiece. It has provided the present owners with immeasurable adventures and experiences.

Find paradise nestled between the waters of Bonavista Bay and the fragile beauty of the boreal forest.
