Year Purchased: 1961
About the owner: The Stone House was bought by our parents Commander Paul and Joyce McCulloch in 1961. Our family spent many happy summer holidays over the next fifty years as Paul and Joyce lovingly restored the house, room by room. Now owned by sisters, Sarah and Gillian McCulloch and Debora Bastos, the tradition of welcoming visitors to this beautiful place continues.
Why the Owner Chose Port Hood, NS, Canada:
The Stone House is a Cape Breton landmark Heritage Home. This unique house was built in 1860 by The Honourable Peter Smyth. Three generations of Smyths lived here until 1961 when the last Smyth (Eleanor) moved to Hollywood, California. Maintaining this wonderful house for everyone to enjoy was our parents' wish.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether coming in summer for the beach and to golf or in fall to photograph the spectacular fall colours and to enjoy the International Celtic Colours music festival you are welcome to make The Stone House your home base.Look forward to peace and quiet in lovely surroundings, fresh air and fire-flies, lobster and oysters, nature walks and friendly local culture.
