Known for its stunning sunrises and warm water, the Amherst Shore is home to this unique property, owned by the family of internationally renowned Canadian artist Alex Colville. Mr. Colville built the 1.5 story cabin himself in the 1960’s and he used it as an occasional camp over years. This .9-acre property features oceanfront on the Northumberland Strait with distant views of Prince Edward Island. This view was perhaps an inspiration for his best-known work, To Prince Edward Island, painted in 1965. A wash house/shed was added to the property in 1984. Tucked in off the road, this property offers privacy and a true escape from the “busy-ness” of modern-day life. Enough room to build a larger cottage and landscape the property to suit your needs. A wonderful opportunity to own a piece of Canadian history.
