19 Railway Road- For Sale



Trinity, Trinity Bay


The historic community of Trinity, Trinity Bay, has been greeting guests for over 500 years. It all started with the migratory fishery, followed by permanent settlement by people mostly from the South of England.


The Trinity Heritage Area has historic value as visible evidence of the development of a distinctive, coastal settlement which emerged in the 18th and 19th century as one of the chief communities in Trinity Bay. The historic role of major merchant firms in the community’s economy and evolution, and its consequent relative prosperity are reflected in the number of substantial dwellings, commercial buildings, public buildings, as in the scale and fine Ecclesiastical Gothic Revival architecture of St. Paul’s Anglican Church. These grander buildings are interspersed amongst vernacular wooden dwellings and outbuildings, with fish stages and slipways at the shoreline. The concentration of the Heritage Area and density of the buildings towards the shoreline, with Gun Hill and Rider’s Hill forming natural boundaries, underscores the role of the landscape in the development of the town, as well as Trinity’s relationship with the sea and its historic status as a centre of overseas trade. There are many seasonal and full time residents enjoying living in all of the restored home within the boundaries of the Heritage area.


There are also options for those who choose to live on the edge of the Heritage Area of the Town of Trinity, away from the seasonal tourism bustle.


19 Railway Road presents such an option. This waterfront property is located towards Goose Cove which is in the Southwest Arm of the harbour, looking to Powell’s Point, the start of the Heritage Area. One could suggest that this represents the best of both worlds in that everything that Trinity has to offer is just “up around the road” or a very short boat ride from your own wharf located on the 597 ft of water frontage associated with this very well appointed home.


Built for the current resident in 2007, this home offers everything one would expect in a high-end urban property while paying homage to traditional Trinity exterior architectural elements, including wooden clapboard and trim, which looks fantastic, having been freshly painted. The home and setting is absolutely stunning, with the waterfrontage oriented to the South East, offering exceptional light to view the sunrise and enjoy a morning coffee on deck looking towards Maggoty Cove and Fort Point.


With 2500 ft of finely finished space, the home has three bedrooms, with the 640 sq ft master segregated from the remainder of the home on the second level.


Upon entry to the foyer incorporating stained glass panels one gets a hint of what is to come. The foyer opens to an outstanding great room that includes kitchen that exceeds the needs of the gourmand, including a deck off the kitchen from where one can enjoy preparing a barbeque, a dining area with five sided bay window offering the most incredible view of the waters of Southwest Arm, an expansive partially covered deck off the dining area complete with a propane fire pit, an expansive living room with custom propane fireplace . Off the living room is a space currently used as an office which could readily serve as a fourth bedroom.


The “all granite” kitchen with high end Kitchen Aid appliances includes a two-tiered, angled eating island with undermount sink. The island can seat six or more for casual fare when larger grouping are not enjoying a more formal meal in the dining area with its outstanding view surrounded by the glazed panels on five sides.


The laundry room and two spacious guest bedrooms complement the main-level and the main bathroom incorporates both granite countertop and high end one piece shower / tub assembly.


The exclusive master on the second level includes an ensuite with granite double sink and high end one-piece shower tub assembly. There is a large walk-in closet and a second closet space for extras.


The basement has an abundance of light from large windows with access to the garden and is fully gyproced awaiting your personal finishing touch.


There is a large 38 by 18 detached garage that could readily accommodate guest overflow with development on the second level.


As can be seen in the photographs, the property is beautifully landscaped all around the house with remaining boreal forest to the North and South of the landscaped areas The 597 feet of waterfront property is actually made up of three parcels of land, one upon which the house sits and two additional parcels which could be developed by a new owner, if retaining all of the land was not a preference.


Enjoy the remaining photos illustrating this outstanding home and property, from where one can readily enjoy all that Trinity has to offer, while offering a quiet, contemporary, waterfront retreat to be enjoyed by family and friends.


For those, who may not want to occupy the property on an exclusive basis, there would indeed be a viable option to lease the property to guests visiting the area when not needed by new owners. There is an adjacent property appropriately referred to as Goose Cove Retreat that is enjoyed by guests from around the world. Check it out at
