Cruickshank Home – 26015 Main St. – sold 06/2021
Three bedroom, 2 Bath –“Victorian Style” home of approximately 2800 square feet. This 2 story home and lot is about 76 feet southwest of the intersection of Gallagher Avenue with Main Street. It has very good “bones” as it was taken back to the frame and completely updated late 1970’s. It needs some elbow grease again on the interior but once restored will be a beautiful home with wonderful harbor views in the heart of Beaver Harbor. This house is only 42 years old but looks like it was designed and built about 1860. The first floor has one bedroom, a living room/library and one large room that is a full kitchen and dining area with wood stove. The back (west side) of this room has a large, open fireplace with chairs and tables to serve as a sitting area just inside the south side entrance. The second story of the main building is an independent apartment with a large great room, full kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. You could easily convert the downstairs into a retail shop (as the Harbor District Zoning allows this) and live upstairs.
It has a deep well, the septic tank was pumped out in 2017, a new roof (about 6 years old), a propane furnace central heating system in the basement, good insulation throughout and a good view of about one-half of Beaver Harbor. The workshop behind the house has a shower stall and room for a bed in an upper story. This building could be easily converted to a guest house. The raised bed gardens area and potting shed are near the back of the lot (west side).
It’s a short walk to everything in town, from McDonough’s Market to the Public Beach Area (near the Catholic Church). You can easily walk to everything you need to get to with the exception of the Transfer Station or the Airports. You have to see this home to understand and appreciate it.
