About the Property

1500 sq. feet of loft and apartment space with harbour view in Trinity Bay, NL

Harbour Couture is a redesigned general store nestled in the heart of Southport, Trinity Bay. Described as a 'New York loft' it is at once traditional and sophisticated. The 800 square foot main floor living area has six large windows facing south. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom and dining table on this level. A beautifully decorated lower level apartment has everything you need for comfort and convenience: master bedroom, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The sitting room on this level has a comfy sofabed.
Southport is a fishing harbour where crab, caplein, lobster, herring, and cod are landed during the summer season. Guests can explore the shoreline, visit the wharves and chat with local fishermen. Or walk five minutes to the end of the community and it is pure ocean, cliffs and sky!
Take Pap's Path up to Jack Baker's Hill - the views of the bay are stunning! Swim in the pristine Lambert's Pond just 5 minute walk from the shop.
Collect driftwood at Heart's Ease Beach for a boil-up or keep treasures.

Note to Kayakers: enjoy this bay with islands, coves, caves and beaches. The 4-hour round trip from Harbour Couture down to Wester' Head, up through the tickle, past Gooseberry Cove, up Ganney Cove Arm to the Rattle, portage across at Little Heart's Ease Neck to Squidholes and the waters of Southwest Arm...this is for the experienced!

Lots to do picking berries, whale watching, icebergs in season can often be seen. You can fish off the wharves and cook-up on Back Beach.

In nearby Gooseberry Cove, Karen's Convenience has very good selection of basic groceries, including beer. Bring specialty items with you or travel 40 minutes to Clarenville for supermarket shopping.

Southport is centrally located for day trips to the Burin and Bonavista Peninsulas which provide world class hiking trails, museums, restaurants as well as ferries to remote communities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I moved from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland 35 years ago and fell in love with the place, its landscape and its people. I worked as a costume designer, in the capitol city St. John's, for most of that time. Since moving to Southport, I've become part of the community and feel very settled here with my partner. We enjoy summer and winter outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, snow shoeing and ice skating. We recently moved to nearby Gooseberry Cove where I enjoy gardening. Travel is a passion for me: to Morocco in the mid 70's, across Canada by train in 1980, to Spain, England, Cuba, Mexico and New York. I hope to do more but for now want to be a great host to guests at Harbour Couture.

Why the Owner Chose Southport, NL, Canada:
I bought the community store in Southport in 2005. It had been closed for 3 years. I made it my home and used the space for the creation of theatre costumes and a line of clothing under the label Harbour Couture. There are still period costumes and hats in the studio from my collection - it is completely charming. We love it and want to share it with guests from this province and from across the world. Southport is centrally located for day trips to the Burin and Bonavista Peninsulas which provide world class hiking trails, museums, restaurants as well as ferries to remote communities.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Harbour Couture is in the centre of the community and very much apart of activity here. The building is located next to the water, where guests can launch kayaks and explore the harbour and the shoreline of the beautiful Trinity Bay - the views are stunning! And the area is great for hiking, swimming, beach combing and for visiting the wharves and chatting with local fishermen. For hikers, this is a joy with the old paths, the barrens, and trails along the cliffs. In nearby Gooseberry, Karen's Convenience has good selection of basic groceries. Bring specialty items with you or travel 45 minutes to Clarenville for supermarket shopping. Please contact me for more information on food shopping in our area.
