Beardmans Art House By The Sea

Cape Breton, Canada
An Artists' Retreat By The Sea

For those in the know, Cape Breton has long been a haven for renowned artists seeking inspiration and refuge among the unspoiled natural beauty.

When New York city based painter and art professor John Beardman discovered this small island, it became a canvas for his life and art.    

Designed by architect Kip Serota of Minoru Yamasaki & Associates, the home was crafted in the classic New England style while also observing the principles of Feng Shui - in bilateral symmetry, with one half facing the mountains and the other half facing the sea.  

Built mostly by Beardman himself with the help of local workers, he collaborated with Serota on his drawings to complete it in 1990, using it as his summer retreat and studio until 2016. Letting the weather and seasons influence his work, visitors can now admire several canvases that remain in the house. 

Renovated under new ownership, this vacation home rental in Nova Scotia is a unique and storied place, that showcases the beauty of Cape Breton.

Located at the eastern end of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island lies between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean.

A breeding ground for migratory whales, the area is also home to a diverse and abundant array of wildlife. 

The house is located along the beautiful Celtic Shores and Ceilidh Coastal Trails section that leads from the Canso Causeway to Inverness, with it’s world-renowned golf course, great pubs, cafés and local music.

The small seaside community of Port Hood is a twenty minute drive and features miles of sandy beaches and some of the warmest waters in eastern Canada. It's host to the annual Chestico Days and Lobster Picnic festivals.
