Welcome to the Horwood house. A piece of Newfoundland's magnificent shipping history nestled in the core of the city, only minutes from downtown. This property was based off of a Caribbean House design seen by the Newfoundland shipping Captain John Horwood and was custom built to his own liking in the early 20th century, with construction finishing in 1921. The house has been kept in its original form by four generations of the Horwood family and is now available for you to purchase! The house offers 10' 4" high ceilings on the main floor with a large, 32 foot long hallway. The main floor has 2 bedrooms and a service room, along with 2 functional kitchens and an open concept living room-dining room with a large bay window in front. The main floor bedroom in front offers an identical bay window. The original spruce wood superstructure of the house has been kept intact along with the extensive original BC Fur finishings, allowing for a classic, old fashioned and unique design which is difficult to find in modern homes. The upstairs offers spectacular views of the city at almost exactly the same elevation as Cabot Tower. This encapsulates a spacious upstairs hallway with 4 bedrooms and a full bath. The exterior offers a partially fenced lot with the front yard covered in greenery including a large maple tree. The garden blooms with colorful flowers in the summer months making for a lovely setting on sunny summer days. The large driveway which fits 5 vehicles is located off of the main road on Mt Pleasant Avenue allowing for ease of access to the property and a safe exit when pulling onto the road. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history right in the center of the city. Dozens of furnishings can be included in the sale price. This includes several pieces which are original to the home and time period. (id:28588)
