Own a special piece of Newfoundland history in the picturesque town of Brigus. Built in the early 1800s, Brookside was purchased by Captain Samuel Bartlett circa 1875. This charming duplex-style home, made of ship’s wood, has been in the Bartlett family for five generations. Captain Samuel, uncle to the famous arctic explorer Captain Robert (Bob) Abram Bartlett, was a famous explorer in his own right. As one of the first Newfoundlanders to earn the prestigious Certificate of Competency as Master of Captain, he skippered the Neptune, which at one time could be sailed right to his back door. Part of this historic home was previously used as a gristmill (flour) which overlooked the brook. The full structure was later relocated next to the road. Many families have rented portions of this home over the years, including the Crosbies and Captain Bob’s family when he was only 5-years-old. The two sides connect to one another through a shared kitchen located on the 22 side. However, the 24 side has a second kitchen hook-up roughed in. This home features two and a half bathrooms, six bedrooms, three living rooms, a full open attic perfect for additional living space or storage, and a laundry area. Off the side of the house is a two-floor sunroom, known as ‘the bubble’. The lower level makes a perfect dining room while the upper level makes a lovely sitting room off the master bedroom. Down the hall is a large bathroom with a luxurious jacuzzi tub and shower stall. A beautiful, covered veranda stretches across the front of the house while two sundecks overlook a shed and a mature oversized rear yard on the bank of the brook. Many renovations have been completed over the years, including new vinyl windows, new outdoor siding, along with new electrical and careful restoration of the floors and walls on the 24 side. This historic gem is just waiting for the perfect new owner to honour its character while becoming a part of its long and rich history. (id:12973)
