LAKE VIEW, HR. MAIN, NL...The early settlers of Lakeview earned their living primarily by fishing, participating in the shore fishery, the Banks fishery and the Labrador fishery. Since most fish was sold for credit, not cash, and there was little manufactured in the country, people supplemented what they earned from the fishery by planting gardens and by wooding, foraging and hunting. The gardens produced enough root vegetables and hay to feed family and some livestock, usually including a horse. Settlers kept a few hens and sheep, maybe a pig, and along with rabbits, partridge, turrs, and occasionally a seal, the diet would have been monotonous but adequate. Cutting and hauling wood, for which a horse was almost essential, produced longers for fences and flakes, timber for houses and sheds, and fuel for heat and cooking. Beginning in the 1890s, men from Conception Bay centre began to migrate annually to New York to work in high steel. The work was hard and dangerous but compared to working on open boats in the North Atlantic, it was well paid, and it used the skills in rigging and hauling that the fishery had taught so well. It was "stay and starve or find work elsewhere." Settling in this every expanding countryside of Lake View we find an opportunity that has come to the market... a refurbished traditional iconic biscuit box once known as the " Flynn's House" where the rich history and culture filled this property as time evolved. Today this 1238 sqft 2 storey 3 bed, 1 bath home has been rebuilt from the studs out. Attention to detail with awesome wood work to retain the culture of days gone by. A completely new kitchen with new appliances. This 21,635 sqft lot has a 10'x12' and 8'x16' shed for all of your accessories and a nice view of the pond where there's lot of fish to be caught and a great place to have a skate in winter! Come walk this place, Vision what this place could be, You decide if this is where you want to be...Don't Delay..... (id:12973)
