Property Description

Vacation property or forever home, this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of PEI history - the Elmer Sharbell house in Portage. Featuring classic Island architecture inside and out, the home displays craftsmanship of a bygone era including high ceilings, deep baseboards and wide trim, hand-turned posts and balusters, intricately patterned wood floors, and the only Douglas fir veranda in West Prince. Lovingly restored and maintained, the cedar-sided 2.5 storey house has been updated everywhere it counts: asphalt roof and electrical panel 2021, septic tank 2019, high efficiency oil furnace and electric hot water tank 2015, drywall and wiring, central vac ready, poured foundation with gravel basement. 3 bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, and a finished loft provide 1878 sq of living space with all furnishings included for a turn-key property. Relax on the 490 sq covered veranda or the enclosed porch. The only house on Bay Road, this lovely home is located only 100 ft from Hwy 2 and Confederation Trail Access Point and is surrounded by beautiful mature trees and lawns. (One of 9 children of Lebanese immigrants, Elmer Sharbell ran a fish market and seafood shipping business, a hotel, several sawmills, various stores, and was heavily involved in the silver fox industry, making Portage a booming place in his day. Elmer bought his house in Egmont Bay in 1920 and set out to haul it across the ice to Portage. Breaking through at one point, the 2 1/2-storey structure remained on the bottom of the Bay for the remainder of the winter until a rescue operation involving 26 teams of horses and more than 50 men succeeded in raising the house and pulling it to its final destination.)
