Clarke's Beach, near St. John's, Newfoundland
This beautifully renovated farmhouse is located less than an hour from downtown St. John's and airport. It boasts enclosed sun porches on the front and back and has character in every corner.
Perched on the South River with kayak/canoe/small boat access to the freshwater river but is a short distance to the Conception Bay off the Atlantic Ocean. The river is home to salmon and ocean trout.
House improvements include new plumbing and electrical (200amp breaker panel). There is cosmetic work that remains, mostly upstairs.
Set on approx 1 acre 29m x 130m (aka 95' x 425'). Roughly half cleared on high ground with the remaining sloping down to the river with small growth evergreens flanking the path to the water.
Land has not had fertilizers or pesticides in the 15+ yrs of current owner and could potentially be organic certified. The land has been worked on over the decades to make it very fertile. Newfoundland is in need of farmers of all sizes that can supply this beautiful island with products.
This is a small farm but a farm gate store on the property would do very well.
Existing produce: Apple, cherry, pear and peach trees. Currants, blackberry and raspberry bushes plus a small grape vine.
Garden area is approx 1/4 acre with good soil that has grown even a watermellon!
Outbuildings: Root cellar, workshop, wood shed, barn and small greenhouse.
Heat is wood stove or electric. There is an oil stove that looks like a wood burner) that functions but the oil tank was removed when it expired and was not replace. A heat pump would also work well on the same wall.
Well water and septic system function well.
Great neighborhood and only minutes to Bay Roberts.
