Property Description

Winner of the inaugural Lieutenant Governor's Award of Merit for Excellence in Architecture in 2015 and featured in Canadian Architect, 12 Forest Avenue is a singular property. Sitting on a half-acre landscaped lot, it is a modern home nestled in an exclusive and historic downtown neighbourhood. Designed to take advantage of the privacy and light afforded by the south facing lot, the home was a collaboration between architect Peter Blackie and the present owners. Inspired by Newfoundland outport design, the property pays equal attention to aesthetic presentation and function. The main floor is open concept. The kitchen, with attached pantry, granite counter and island, flows into a dining and living area with an elevated Stuv fireplace, complementing a sunroom and adjacent family room. 10-foot ceilings bring a sense of space and light, and a wall of south facing windows contribute to passive heating and a connection to the outdoors in all seasons. The floor is highly polished pigmented concrete. The upper level has 9-foot ceilings and Newfoundland birch floors. The spacious master suite has an office and private patio. The ensuite has granite counters, custom cabinetry, custom shower and an air tub. The bright second bedroom opens to a loft space, which could be readily configured as a third bedroom or den. The home has many features such as bookcases, benches, custom closet shelving and concealed storage that contribute to exceptional function without sacrificing the clean lines of the design. An electric furnace provides efficient in-floor heating, an IQ panel provides security and smart home functionality, and an auxiliary electrical panel accommodates generator power. Granite tiles grace the entryway and patio, and the immaculate grounds include a garage of complementary design. A natural stone retaining wall preserves the trees original to the property, with stone stairs and pathways leading to a flagstone seating area. 12 Forest Avenue is a rare find. (id:27)
