Highlights

Description

Cook’s Cove could be considered the “triple threat” of real estate, offering: (1) a whopping 908 linear ft. of waterfront, (2) protected, deep-water, private marina, 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 The property is functionally exceptional, esthetically phenomenal, and rich in historical content.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 VP of Owens-Illinois, led the pulpwood operations in Snake Cay, Abaco. “Mac” visited Elbow Cay, & purchased several parcels to create this mariner’s dream. Allegedly, the cove was found marked on charts belonging to Captain Cook, and thus named Cook’s Cove. In the 60’s Mac dredged the cove and had a sea wall built. It was a huge undertaking. Later the land was passed to his daughter, Kathryn. In the 70’s Kathryn and her husband, Dr. Pritchard (a well-respected neurosurgeon and active member of the community) built a modest cottage. The property is now being sold by the 3rd generation of McLarens who are advocates of maintaining the property’s charm and its estate-like quality. An adjacent 2.04 acres on the Atlantic is available for $1.6mm MLS#47848.Cook’s Cove could be considered the “triple threat” of real estate, offering: (1) a whopping 908 linear ft. of waterfront, (2) protected, deep-water, private marina, and (3) a private beach on the leeside.
