About Cook's Cove - North End

Cook's Cove could be considered the triple threat of real estate. The offering includes:
(1) a whopping 908 linear ft. of waterfront
(2) protected, deep water private marina, with 440 linear ft. of seawall, and
(3) a private beach on the leeside.
The property is functionally exceptional, esthetically phenomenal, and rich in historical content. In the 1950's CG McLaren, Executive Vice President of Ownens-Illinios, led the pulpwood cutting operations in Snake Cay, Abaco. He was a man with great vision and was said to be larger than Life. Eventually Mac visited Elbow Cay, and purchased several pieces of property on the north end, from local Bahamians, and combined them to create an extraordinary parcel that included a private beach and natural cove. Allegedly, Mac found the cove documented on charts, that were said to have belonged to the pirate, Captain Cook, and thus he named the property Cook's Cove. In the 60's Mac dredged the cove and had a sea wall built. Many visitors and locals remember this huge undertaking very well and share stories of the excavators that created the protected, deep-water, very private marina. Later the land was passed down to his daughter, Kathryn, who could often be found at the property's private beach on the leeside; her favorite spot! Kathryn and her husband Dr. Pritchard (a well-respected neurosurgeon and active member of the community) built a modest cottage with the help of their 3 young children. Dr. Pritchard enjoyed stand-ups at the Hope Town Sailing Club and singing in the choir at the St. James Methodist Church. He had a workshop/ machine shed on the property, and in later years, could often be found working on the cottage, and maintaining his boat or gardening. The property is now being sold by the 3rd generation of Mclarens who still adore the property and its history. They are advocates of maintaining the property's charm, & its estate-like quality. An adjacent 2.04 acres on the Atlantic is available for $1.6mm MLS#47848.
