About the property

4 bedroom, 1 bathroom with three layers of decks and a treed backyard.

SUMMER 2017 UPDATE: After a short season offline for upgrades, this country-in-the-city home is finally re-opened for summer bookings! Just in time as the festival season kicks off in St. John's and rooms around town have filled up quickly.

We have extended the hardwood flooring to include not just the master bedroom on the main floor but the extra calm, quiet and cozy downstairs bedroom. A few other touches (like re-furbished painted wood stairs) bring out the pristine cottage charm of the interior. Next year we will tackle the "plain jane" exterior to match the aesthetic of the rooms inside, but for now we can't wait for this beautiful space to complete your trip to our favourite place in the world.

The sound of the Waterford River running along the backyard is all the tonic you will need after a long day of weddings, work or sightseeing. A view that is hard to believe is less than 2km, connected by bike and walking trails, to the heart of downtown.

Three levels of decks look over a sun dappled yard with mature trees and a burbling brook. Lots of light throughout the house. Attached on one side. Views out front and back. Off street parking.

Mainfloor: Living room has picture window, a pullout twin sleeper, Luxurious and stylish armchairs, original mantel, TV, DVD player. Queen master bedroom with hardwood floors and private deck. A full bathroom recently updated.

Top Floor: Twin bedroom with adorable dormer window looking over the back/river. Double bedroom with large closet looking out the front over a historic cemetery/greenspace

Bottom Floor: Double bedroom (now with hardwood) has large closet. Large kitchen with lots of cupboard space, drip coffee and an espresso machine! Dining room with attached deck for optional outdoor dining. High chair available. Side door into kitchen provides option of access to the bedroom on this floor without disturbing those on the main floor above.
