Argyle Shore PEI
For sale by owner. This stunning open-concept, 4-bedroom cedar log home, perched high on a 1.48-acre lot, provides impressive panoramic water views of the Northumberland Strait. Located in Argyle Shore, Prince Edward Island, only 25 kilometers (20 minutes) from University Avenue in Charlottetown, this unique home is a five minute walk from south shore beaches which feature some of the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. As you approach the front door from the slate flag stone walkway, you will be impressed with the large deck – over 430 square feet. The “L”-shaped deck, which is equipped with built-in planters and benches, 2 sets of stairs, and 2 access points into the home, is a great spot to enjoy the water views and sunsets over the water. Entering the home, your attention is immediately drawn to the striking all-brick flue that stretches high up into the 21-foot vaulted ceilings of the great room which houses the living room, dining, and kitchen area, as well as the loft on the second floor. The exposed beams that stretch across the great room add plenty of character as well. The next thing you notice is how bright the interior of this home is thanks, in part to the open and airy layout, but mostly to the large number of aluminum clad wood windows through out. The stylish kitchen, with driftwood-stained birch cabinetry and black appliances, has plenty of counter space with its island that features a raised eating bar for 4. Also on the main floor are 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, and the laundry/mud room that lead to the garage. At the top of the open staircase on the second floor is a loft area of over 150 square feet – there are incredible view of the Strait from here. There is a small odd-shaped kid’s play (or storage) area accessed by ladder from the loft. Also on the second floor are a full bathroom, as well as the 3rd bedroom and huge master bedroom. The latter features 2 closets and a wide dormer window looking out onto the Strait. Meticulously constructed of milled cedar logs using a double tongue and groove technique, this home is very well insulated with both P2000 and fiberglass insulation. On the interior, the tongue & groove pine walls and ceilings, and the pine trim were all conscientiously hand-nailed with much attention to detail in the fit and finish of everything. The exposed laminated structural beams, which are all dovetailed into the exterior logs provide significant character to the entire structure, not to mention sturdiness. The comforting hot-water radiant heat floors on the main floor are birch while the second story floors, heated by hot-water baseboards, are pine. The exception to this are the 2 full bathrooms which feature gorgeous slate floors. The main floor bathroom is fitted with a one-piece tub/shower surround. The impressive second floor bathroom features a separate all slate stand-up shower, double sinks and an air jet tub where you can relax while enjoying a private view from the tub-side window. All interior doors (including bi-fold closet doors) are made of solid pine. A long paved driveway leads to the large 2-door double garage with featuring radiant in-floor heat. Very handy is a wood chute from the garage to the basement so you can feed the wood boiler or keep wood stock dry and handy for the soothing wood stove in the living room. Hot water for heating and domestic use is provided from a system with built-in redundancy consisting of one oil-fired boiler and one wood-fired boiler both located in the basement. The heating system is also complemented with an air exchange system. The property is in a small subdivision of only 6 large country lots which have protective covenants in place to ensure a comfortable living area and to protect your investment. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to acquire a water-view modern log home within easy commute of the city at such an appealing price point.
