This centrally located heritage home was built in 1892 and extensively updated over the past few years. Maintained character with 11 foot ceilings and original mouldings while offering modern luxury in fully redone kitchen and bathrooms. Stunning Narrows views. Found only a 10 minute walk to downtown St. John's with world class restaurants, the famous George Street, and urban Newfoundland charm. Steps away from Fish and Chip Alley and Coleman's grocery store. Off street parking.

The space

This heritage home maintains it's full original charm from the 1890s while having received a recent modernization through extensive renovations. It is a spacious home including two large bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen bed), an office, two full bathrooms, a living room (including a pull out sofa and another comfy couch), a full dining room, and a large kitchen. There is also a large fenced-in backyard with a deck and barbecue as well as a fire pit with rustic seating crafted from salvaged tree trunks. Off street parking includes space for two vehicles and non-permit street parking is also available immediately in front of the house.

Other things to note

We do not have house pets but we do enjoy raising backyard chickens as a supply of local, free range eggs. We do not expect visitors to care for the chickens in any way (they live happily year round in their own home in a corner of our yard) but we do welcome anyone staying in our home to collect fresh eggs for their breakfast as desired.

A lovely private home centrally located and within walking distance to historic sites, museums, art galleries, churches, groceries, restaurants, coffee shops and more. Our hosts prepared a booklet for us with wonderful recommendations of places to visit and eat at in St John's. Wish we could have spent a few days more at this home.

This was an authentic stay in a full house - that made more sense than paying about the same for a hotel room. Main bath upstairs is very large and well appointed. Second bath was very handy. Beds were comfortable. Having a steamer for our wedding clothes was awesome. Off street parking was a bonus. Hosts were quick to reply to any questions and it was easy to make this our home during our stay in St. John's.

Beautiful home, clean, well decorated with modern and vintage, great view from office! Over all quiet neighbourhood. The road can be a little busy if the windows are open but if you want to be in the downtown area of St. John's there will be road traffic during certain times of the day! Great location and central. The information package done by the homeowners was very detailed and thought out very considerate! We would stay again.

The home is very cozy and comfortable, location is a short walk to restaurants, bars, downtown, Grorge St., etc. Nice deck to have morning coffee in the sunshine. Everything you could need was available. We would definitely come back again!!
