Feng Shui In Cape Breton

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.

  • A very nice vacation home, tastefully renovated, with attention to
    detail. So comfortable that you like spending time indoors too. But only
    in bad weather, if you have a private beach. Hares, squirrels, gophers,
    hummingbirds and eagles can be observed on the terrace and in the
    garden. In general, the garden! On the balcony you can enjoy the sound
    of the sea and an incredible starry sky without light pollution. The
    “bedroom view” is just like in the photos. And from the hosts you get
    anytime great excursion tips. His story and the beautiful artwork of
    John Beardman make the house something very special! We fell in love so
    much that in the end we bought a painting as a souvenir.

    Welcome to paradise!

    Dear Stefanie and Marcus,
    thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this beautifully renovated
    vacation home!
    Also thank you for all the wonderful tips. We did a whole lot of the
    things you suggested. We enjoyed the week to the fullest. The kids had
    so much fun at the beach and thanks to the barbecue grill we chilled out
    in the evenings with burgers and steaks. We wish you a lot of friendly
    guests to enjoy this beautiful house and your hospitality!
