Welcome to the warm embrace of the Reuben Crowley House, an authentic traditional Newfoundland Biscuit Box Homestead, built in 1941 on the south side of Western Bay, home to generations of a very happy family and all their memories. The low-slope gable roof is specific to Newfoundland, resembling the shape of a package of "Hard Biscuits", also known as hard bread or hard tack. The house has a washer and dryer, and first-floor half bath, very convenient. Please view the photo collection. Enjoy the views of the bay and the Atlantic Ocean from the porch, stroll to the sand and shingle beaches nearby, or adventure out to the Western Bay Boardwalk or the picturesque resettled former community of Bradley's Cove.

We went to Conception Bay North to learn about Warren's family heritage, as all his grandparents came from adjoining coves there. It turned out to be the most beautiful, most comfortable place we'd ever been, and we were completely captivated. The neighbors are nearly all related to him, and they are the nicest, most engaging people imaginable. I am an architectural historian, and this homestead captured my interest with its three matching buildings in the traditional Newfoundland Biscuit Box style..

Why Owner chose Western Bay
We feel extraordinarily fortunate to have encountered this homestead hidden away on its little dead-end road. We first saw it our very first day in Newfoundland. It was still for sale eight months later when we next returned, and when we learned the price, it began to seem possible, even likely that we could buy it, and since it was fully furnished, we were able to stay there right away. We love the views of the ocean and bay, the views of open land across the road, the quick walks to the beaches, and the incredible peace and quiet of the location.
What makes this House unique
Bay views, ocean views, nearby beaches and boat launches, Newfoundland history, natural beauty, icebergs in the bay, kind and friendly people everywhere.

One of the old Outports, or fishing villages, with a handsome harbour and plenty of history. Neigbouring outport Bradley's Cove was resettled in the 1960's because the electric lines hadn't been run out there, Now all that's left is a stone root cellar and the rock walls that delineated the vegetable gardens.
