59 Battery Road St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador A1A 1A4

3 Bedroom 1 Bathroom 1426 sqft
3 Level Landscaped


59 Battery Road has long been loving referred to as “Cloud 59”! This one-of-a-kind outport house in the city is built largely below street level. The house is quiet, sunny, private, and has spectacular unobstructed views of the city, Harbour, and Southside Hills from all three levels. The original house was built by a local Battery family who lived at street level and had their twine store below. After the current owner bought the house in 1992, renovations commenced: the top floor became two bedrooms and a generous bathroom/laundry room. The twine store became an open concept kitchen, dining area and living room, with a side entrance, office area, and pantry. Then in 2009, the owner added a sound studio/office extension below the living area. The current owner, a master carpenter with a passion for restoration and historical detail, has created a space that charms and delights. The use of stained glass, V-joint ceilings, and door latches from the early 1900s underscore the owner’s attention to detail, and commitment to quality. For example, all the windows are traditional wooden vertical sliders built by Jim Youden. The house has been meticulously maintained. If you’re sitting out in the garden under the cherry tree observing harbour life or puttering in the most photographed shed (8x12) in the Battery, this property will give you the feeling of having come home. Or conversely, the panoramic views and large double lot, a rarity in the Battery, might get you thinking about the possibility of a brand-new, much larger, ultra-modern build. (id:18358)
