    I just screamed at my husband “Why can’t we be Canadian?!” I’ve forgotten all other favorites homes I’ve posted, this one is up at the top.

      I was born & raised in Vancouver, BC. I have never been to NFL but my best friend of 25 years has visited there once and fell in love with the place. Its his dream to retire to the maritime provinces one day. I showed him the house that Kelly posted from Nova Scotia and he drooled over it. OMG wait until he sees this lovely old lady. He is going to freak! πŸ™‚

      Newfoundland didn’t even become a Canadian province until just after WWII…it’s a whole other world from mainland Canada, I think!

    OMG I NEED THIS HOUSE. This is bar far the most gorgeous house ever posted here. I’d move there in a second if I had a job nearby… (*googles colleges in Newfoundland, CA*)

    Gorgeous house, gorgeous view! I’m Canadian and I don’t think I’d move to Newfoundland. As friendly as the people are and as beautiful and colorful the homes are, you have to really like winter to move there. Ontario, where I live, is bad enough for winters but we don’t get snow for as long as Newfoundland does.

    Oh, the poor stone house next door.

      The poor stone house to which you refer is Ridley Hall. I know it because Google maps. aerial satellite view, has a little label that tells me so. Here is a link which gives a not so detailed description of what happened to it.
      http://www.hiddennewfoundland.ca/ridley-hall
      The listed house is attractive, but I don’t get why so many are saying it is their dream house. It is so close to the water that in twenty years , unless the locals learn a lot from Holland about living on land that is below sea level, it will be under water. I want a house that is going to be above sea level after the time that possible worst case scenarios for global warming has passed.
      My father used to say” I’ll be dead by then”, when we spoke of things that were going to happen after he would reach his mid seventies because his father died at 68 and mother 71. Dad lived ’til 2014 and died at age 88. My projections which are based on the things that I have read may never come true and be all doom and gloom. I still won’t buy low lying property near the ocean.
      On the other hand, if global warming comes about, a house in Newfoundland at a higher elevation than that of worst case sea level projections for a post global-warming age, may not have much snow to shovel!

        Not even close to my dream home either, but to each their own! After all, I’m the weirdo who likes 80’s kitchens . . .

          Really?? That’s surprising to me, mainly because I can’t even think of what 80s kitchens look like!

    I’ve never seen a more beautiful house on this site. I love everything about it, from the metal roof to the wood floors to the wonderful colors inside. Be sure to take the google bus to see the neighborhood. Yes, I could live in that bedroom with the bay window that opens to the water across the street. I can’t stop dreaming and looking at the pictures.

    This is going to sound kind of weird-ish, but it isn’t only the way the house looks that is making people fall in love. There is a definite “air” about it. I don’t know if it is the lighting or the photographer, but something about it just *feels* safe and free. I don’t necessarily think it’s the most attractive I’ve ever seen on here (according to my tastes, I stress heavily) but there is something exciting about it.

    I hope somebody gets what I’m saying. LOL

      I dont really appreciate the house either, but I find it fascinating that so many people say its the best ever.
      I guess its like you said. Im thinking the house makes all the readers ‘feel’ something. Hmmmm so interesting πŸ™‚

    Hang on, hang on…. I can’t edit my last post due to the comment bug.

    I commented before looking at the street view and reading the articles that were posted.

    First, snow in June is actually magical to me. Like, real, Harry Potter, Narnia magic. I would love that. Second, that house next door is sad but very romantic, for lack of a better term.

    Third, after looking at the street view I am not changing what I said about the feel of the house contributing to everyone loving it, but I am backtracking on hinting that this house isn’t necessarily one of my favorites. The street view completely knocked the breath out of me. I’m just as in love other people posting seem to be.

    Whoever buys this house will be one very blessed person.

    Can’t you just smell the cool, crisp, fresh sea air? I too noticed the forlorn pile next door… thanks Joe for sharing the link with the additional pictures and info. Having that as a neighbor certainly adds interest!

    I did my absolute best to sell my family on this house. It was a complete no-go. I’m now sitting back with crossed fingers hoping an OHD’er buys it.

    I think this place is absolutely gorgeous. I’m swooning over the pulley drying rack in the kitchen. Now, while I would not love to **have** to use it, I’d like to be **able** to use it. The colors seem so cheerful too.

    I’m a dual citizen and would move to Canada in a heartbeat if hubby would, but he won’t. I am, however, comforted by the fact that if things get much worse here, I could legally cross the border quickly.

    This isn’t a style I usually like, but the house exterior is so pretty, and I love its view of the water. (I’m going to ignore the fact that winter exists.) One thing I find appealing about the house is its furnishings. There are some beautiful pieces I’d beg them to include if I were buying the house.

    I love this house as well, there is something magical about it, and I like the ruined stone house next door as well, it almost seems romantic for some reason. And those views !! Knock your eye out !! πŸ˜‰

    Wow what an awesome home! (Note: “home”) I would landscape it a bit for what little warm weather there (it has a lot of character for that). The inside is perfect. (sigh) Home. I live down the road from the Texas Gulf Coast (say 3 minutes lol) but did live in Kansas a few years to know about cold winter… I love that house!
