Located on an exclusive cul-de-sac in the temperate Waterford Valley, 12 Waterford Avenue may just be the property you have been waiting to come on the market.


This spacious 4425 sq. ft. ranch style bungalow, built just after Newfoundland joined Canada, has many of the attributes suiting a buyer who would like a home for both family living and entertaining. The master bedroom with ensuite, two walk in closets, make-up room and large lounging area is separate from the three bedrooms on the opposite side of the house. However, for families with very young children, where adjacent bedroom space may be appropriate, one of the three additional bedrooms can serve as master during the children’s younger years as the larger of those three bedrooms also has an ensuite.


The kitchen is designed for efficient entertaining and sheer culinary enjoyment. Whether you prepare meals for your guests on your own, or invite a caterer for those special occasions, this spacious kitchen will exceed your expectations. Features include a full suite of Kitchen Aid appliances and a very generous counter space layout.


The adjacent, bright eating nook, which may also work as a solarium, will work well for those casual gatherings, while the formal dining room with fireplace may be more appropriate for those special occasions. The great room, with floating fireplace and seasoned hardwood, is complemented by a handy wet bar complete with fridge, sink and ample counter for service. A cozy den awaits, with fireplace, for quiet evenings.


Beautifully landscaped with flagstone walkways, granite steps and walls, and a wide selection of mature trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plantings, this garden is ready for your enjoyment. The south facing  rear garden, with two decks, provides a very private space for you and your guests for your summer enjoyment.


Redwood Construction undertook a number of tasteful upgrades to the house in the past few months, and this home is ready for you to view.


Additional features to make for easy living at 12 Waterford Ave, include; built in vacuum system; air exchange system; security system; and pre-wiring for telephone, internet, TV, and intercom.


Many options for a variety of family styles can be accommodated by the layout of this floor plan; in-law, or multi generational families, space and privacy for college-aged children and beyond or a guest suite for frequent or long term visitors are some possibilities.


While viewing the web site, you will see about 50 photographs of the house and garden, the neighbouring properties on the cul-de-sac, and other photos that may be of great interest to those who may not be familiar with the many attributes of the Waterford Valley.


The Waterford River, which is a short walk from the house, runs through the Waterford Valley. This is one of the nature’s treasures in the City of St. John’s. Residents can be seen fishing for trout in the river system and the river has been seeded with Atlantic Salmon fry and one day, with the Harbour clean up now underway, one can expect that the mighty Atlantic salmon will once again choose the Waterford River to spawn.


The Waterford River Trail system was developed a number of years ago and it follows the edge of the River with Bowring Park, a treasured gift from the Bowring family, to the citizens of the City, just a short walk along the trail. Web site visitors can see a few photos of the trail and Bowring Park.


Schooling is very important for a buyer with school age children. St, Mary’s Elementary School, an outstanding single stream school is within walking distance as is Beaconsfield Junior High and High School and these facilities are also illustrated on the photos that follow.


Finally, there is a copy of the survey and a link to an interesting history of the property ownership and life in the Waterford Valley.


The price for this property, which is truly value based, is $579,000. For a personal appointment to view this distinctive home, please call Chris O’Dea at 685-6559
