20 Circular Road - For Sale
A significant Century Home located across the street from Government House, with architectural symmetry at its best reflecting a Southcott influence.
In the very heart of old St. John’s, this large and stately home has all the grandeur of a bygone era, when skilled carpentry and plaster craftsmanship excelled and now awaits your viewing pleasure.
The moment you step up to the covered balustrade entry bridge, you get a sense that this may be a special home, and beyond the spacious porch, the dominant entry hall is most impressive, in the Eastlake style with lavish use of spindle work in the arched entry. This feature is repeated in the archway between the grand living room and dining room, both with ornate plaster cornices and rosettes and both with outstanding slate and tile fireplaces.
The main floor has been well designed for family living and entertaining with spacious living and dining rooms, cosy den or office with fireplace, powder room and large eat-in kitchen. This grand Victorian Lady has soaring 10.5 foot high ceilings, two storey bay windows and bright hardwood floors. Several original lighting fixtures, in exquisite silver, brass and glass adorn these rooms to create a special glow.
A large, finished workshop space in the basement could easily be converted back to a Family or game room with fireplace intact. The lower level also has a large laundry room, smaller workshop and extra storage space plus access to the built in garage at the rear.
Four large bedrooms on the second floor surround a large open hallway that also leads to the third floor with five small functional rooms, and a hallway brightly lit by a large skylight.
A new owner, with fresh colours and a desire to bring this beauty back to its former glory will be richly rewarded with a home of exquisite character.
To arrange a private viewing, please call Chris O’Dea at 685-6559.
Asking price $549,000
