Waterfront property on the waters of Southern Bay in Summerville, Bonavista Bay.


This house is indeed a gem as it has been totally rebuilt and restored by a master carpenter who paid great homage to the traditional vernacular style of this two story home that borders the harbour in Summerville.


What a site for year round or seasonal living. The many outbuildings can accommodate your kayak, boat, quad, snowmobile or other recreational possessions. The site is an ideal base for enjoyment of all kinds of activity on the water and on the land.  A short hike will take you to a secluded beach at Wild Cove or you can catch the rays of the sun on the lower waterfront deck. A short boat run out Southern Bay is all that is necessary to do some whale watching. The summer food fishery is literally on your doorstep. Golfers will enjoy The View which is about 10 minutes drive from Summerville and theatre goers can enjoy theatre in Trinity which is about 25 minutes away.


You will enjoy all of the views from the new windows in the house that were made by a master window maker in Trinity. The interior appointments and furnishings, including many antiques, are in keeping with the period of the house and many of the furnishings will be remaining with the house. The kitchen is a treasure with traditional style cabinets that conform to the space. The adjacent eating area has access to the expansive deck that surrounds two side of the house overlooking the water. You will enjoy the cozy living room with the cast iron woodstove providing warmth and ambiance in the shoulder seasons. The three bedrooms can comfortably accommodate you and your guests and the old fashioned claw foot tub in the bathroom will sooth the weary muscles after a long hike along the coastline as it draws water from the artesian well.


The unimpeded view will relax your soul and provide you with endless hours of relaxation and enjoyment.


You simply need to bring your clothing and provisions and be prepared for a most enchanting property on a bluff overlooking Southern Bay. It awaits your viewing pleasure by calling Chris O’Dea at 709-685-6559.


The purchase price is $95,000.
