6 Lambe's Lane
An estate property in the heart of the City
The possibilities are endless and can include the option for continuation of use as a private residence or alternate uses as a site for commercial activity.
As you enter the private drive, you are immediately embraced by a mixed border of mature trees, some dating back over a century when this property was part of an experimental farm which was run by the Government of Newfoundland.
2.272 acres of privacy, but on the doorstep of Memorial University, the Aquarena, the Health Science Complex, and Westerland awaits the discriminating residential buyer who will continue to enhance the house and grounds or the entrepreneur who will be keen to explore alternative options for use of the property.
The original structure was built on this property in the 1860”s and was used at that time as a summer home. In 1962, the original home was completely rebuilt and modernized for contemporary family living and entertaining.
In 1989 a further series of improvements were undertaken which included the installation of all new double hung Pella windows, the construction of an enlarged modern kitchen with access to a patio and the garden, and the construction of a new family room with propane fireplace.
From the moment you enter the expansive foyer, you know that this is a special property. The original staircase remains with formal living room with fireplace to the left and den / library, also with fireplace to the right. You will enjoy entertaining your guests in this front section of the house. As guests begin to mingle, they can withdraw to the family room which divides the living room from the kitchen. The family room has a propane fireplace. To the rear of the den / library and just off the foyer, is the dining room with space for many guests. The butler’s pantry between the dining room and kitchen is most convenient and there is a powder room on the main floor for your convenience.
Ascending the elegant original staircase, the area is bright with light from the overhead skylight at the top of the stair landing. In one direction, we find two bedrooms, one with a three piece ensuite for family members or guests. In the other direction, we find the main bathroom, a third bedroom, and a very spacious master suite containing a sitting lounge / master foyer with fireplace, fully lined cedar closet for those special fabrics, and a full ensuite with retro yellow fixtures and tiles. This area also contains another room that is currently used as a music room, but could be suitable for many purposes including a fifth bedroom, a large dressing room, an office, den or nursery.
The attic, for extra storage, has a pull down stairs and is fully insulated.
The basement, which is dry and solid, has a small wine cellar, a security room, and other multi purpose rooms and storage facilities. This area also contains the hot water furnace which provides comfortable heat to the baseboard cast iron radiators throughout the house.
At the rear of the house is a three bay garage with attached garden shed. The fenced area behind the garage was the dog kennel where Hon. Harold MacPherson raised Newfoundland dogs at a time when he alone undertook the resurgence of the breed and sent Newfoundland dogs to new owners around the world.
Just to the east of the garage is the original farm manager’s cottage, a two story dwelling dating back to the 1860's. There is hardwood on the main and a working fireplace, basic kitchen and four bedrooms. With a little restoration and renovation, this cottage could be a stunning addition as a guest house, an ancillary building for commercial enterprise, a stunning rental, a home for in-laws, or a home close to home for grown children.
