The Little House

Summer home? Starter home? B & B? Downsizing? Forever home?
This sweet spot on 2nd Ave. just off Farm Rd. in Gillams is ready to go. The front face of the house and patio face the sun all day... brightness and light as long as it lasts!

The view off to the side in this quiet pocket community in Gillams offers the sounds of busy free range chickens at the base of the field across the road, nice neighbours, minutes away from waterfall path and swimming holes, and also minutes away from the ocean and beach.


The kitchen is fresh, bright, and following the lines of the house, simple yet elegant. Centre island allows plenty of room for cozy chats, kitchen meals, and storage; the sink and new cabinets have been placed under the window to maximize the enjoyment of the view outside.

The French door leading into the kitchen offers light from the entryway closet/laundry room/mudroom area, and plenty of space left for the fridge along the south-facing wall of the home next to the cabinets.

Looking from kitchen to living room; potlights with dimmer switches have been installed in all three main living areas.

Living room

Looking from living room into kitchen, the space is open, airy, and fresh.

Dining room with new window; new doors, new flooring, new windows have been installed throughout the home.

Easy access to beautiful patio with the grand view and light.

Glancing in hallway towards bathroom, which is equipped with new toilet, pedestal sink, and round-doored shower. Beautiful French doors grace all the rooms in the home.

View from one kitchen window.

View from the living room window.

Easy access to stairs, patio, and home from the short driveway. The home is topped off with a brand new roof, good for 25 years. Cherry trees, apples trees, and maple, birch, and spruce populate the yard; room for gardens, greenhouse, shed, etc. for the future.

Note the art fish carried over from under the window wall onto the side of the patio.
I haven't taken photos of the bedrooms yet... there is a smaller bedroom off one side of the hallway, and a large master bedroom with walk-in closet off the other side. Most likely I will post those later... first I have to vacuum!
I was going to have an Open House today, but the water is going to be shut off in the town for the better part of the day, so this seems not to be the best time. Next week the Little House will be listed, but if anyone would like to see the house beforehand, let me know (783-3505)!
