St. John's house description

Only 15 scenic minutes from downtown St. John's, this spectacular property offers the full Newfoundland experience: nature and culture at your doorstep and the city's bountiful offerings within minutes.

This house is perched above the historic, active fishing village of Petty Harbour. The unobstructed sightlines from the expansive front windows allow full views of the working harbour and the open water of Motion Bay.

The house features:
1000 sq. ft.+ of one level living space
One bedroom - Obusforme King bed
Full bathroom - bathtub/shower combination
Modern kitchen - open to the entertainment area
Living/Dining area - spanning the full front of the house, with cathedral ceiling
Front deck - approximately 7 X 20 feet
Side deck - approximately 4 X 8 feet - covered, barbequing area
Laundry Room on the lower level

Ideal for nature lovers, this property's purpose has been conceived by the owners as a retreat from the swift pace of the city. In all weather, nature is our host here and absorbing the activity from this sheltered perch is unavoidably consuming. This is a place to slow down - books, games, food & drink, and nature's beauty are our distractions. Sorry, no television found here.

Note that the house is located at the top of a steep, old, and narrow road - a 90 second walk up from parking at the bottom of the hill. Parking is not permitted at the property.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We are 'mainlanders', living in downtown St. John's for 14 years, and loving every Newfoundland minute.

              Why the Owner Chose St. John's:
              We have always chosen to spend our Newfoundland leisure time in the finest places offered here - those close to nature. When this property overlooking the ocean and quaint town of Petty Harbour became available, we couldn't resist. With the East Coast Trail in our backyard and the wonderful culture of this fishing village all around us, our release from the city's bustle was complete.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Having traveled Newfoundland extensively, we often craved to have a 'house around the bay', without the drive to get there. We found it here - Petty Harbour is worlds away from the city, but minutes away from our downtown front door. And nature comes right into our living room.
