What you will love about this home
We are a family with 3 girls 12, 14 and 20. We love to travel but not as tourists but to try to get a sense of the real place. Our house is a modern loft-ish feel in the woods. We are close to everything but out of the way enough to feel completely secluded.
What you will love in the neighborhood
We are a couple in our 40s. We have three girls, 12, 14 and 20. The 20 year old may or may not be travellng with us, depending on her school and work schedule.
We live in a small town called Flatrock, which is about 12 minutes drive outside of St. John's, which js the capital city of the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador. Our home is situated on a 4 acre secluded wooded lot with a detached artists studio and a fire pit.
My wife is an interior designer and our hobby is renovating. We purchased this house 2 years ago and have been renovating since. An article on the house with a series of pictures may be found at the following address:
Newfoundland and Labrador is a terrific place to explore. Within a 1 hour drive from our house are several internationally renowned tourism and eco-tourism sites. The City of St. John's has all imaginable amenities, including the 2 best restaurants in Canada for the last 2 years. The weather in the summer is generally temperate and excellent for hiking and various outdoor activities.
