Bell Island is just off the coast of St John’s, Newfoundland, and offers a wonderful way of life that’s a bit more relaxed. I took a ferry over to explore this beautiful place and quickly wondered just what kind of homes you could find around here. Today we’ll look at the priciest listing on the market here on Bell Island in the town of Wabana and just what that gets you. Hint, it’s a bit of paradise in a place of peace and quiet.
Getting to Bell Island requires a short ferry ride from Portugal Cove just outside of St John’s, as well there is a small airstrip on the Island. So if you’re looking to be in an area that doesn’t have traffic or crowds, this is the place to be.
22 Lance Cove Road in Wabana is a whole lot of home for a price that really isn’t considered a “luxury price”, and that’s what is great about it. It caught my eye for just how much home you get and while it’s a bit dated on the outside, the interior is well done. I honestly think this home cost a lot more to build that its listing price so let’s take a look at what you get here.
The home is nearly 5,200 square feet and is packed with four big bedrooms, as well as three bathrooms across two stories. The master bedroom has beautiful bay windows that showcase panoramic ocean views. I don’t doubt that on a good day you’ll see whales out there cruising along, just another benefit of living on this beautiful coast.
The home is the perfect family spot with a large living area, plenty of outdoor space(1.59 acres) to enjoy with room for a garden and whatever else you’d want. The interior heat and air conditioning is supplied by an efficient heat pump so you can survive the winters here easily. If you’ve been out this way you know just how wild that windchill can get.
22 Lance Cove Road is on the market for only $269,900 CAD and it’s listed with Donald Norris of RE/MAX Avalon. If you’re interested in this property you can reach him directly via 709-690-5585 to learn more and schedule a viewing. We think this is a steal of a deal in a location that gets you away from the rat race.
