The magnificent view from this waterfront cottage will leave you breathless. Perched on the Narrows, at the mouth of St. John's Harbour, experience sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean & sunsets over the city’s skyline. This exceptional property sits on the foundation of an 18th century fortification & site of the original Harbour Pilot House, which helped vessels navigate the harbour opening. With a permit issued for a new build, the foundation (concrete, some beams & some old flooring as a base) was retained but the remainder was rebuilt & completed in the Spring of 2014; 2 x 6 construction, walls, windows, doors, clapboard siding & torch-on-roof, creating an exterior reminiscent of its era. An HVAC system, kitchen appliances, stackable washer & dryer, electric heat, a Pacific Energy woodstove for cold & chilly Newfoundland nights, along with municipal services, provide modern comforts with a rustic feel. The main floor has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with laundry closet & an open concept kitchen-dining-living area, with floor-to-ceiling windows, presenting the most stunning of views. The lower level offers a family room, walk-in closet, another potential sleeping space, full bath & an unfinished area for a workshop, craft room or storage with a small porch giving basement entry & exit.
