12 Christopher Drive, St. Catherine’s
Prince Edward Island
St. Catherine’s is an idyllic rural hamlet on the outskirts of Cornwall, Prince Edward Island.
The stunning West River weaves its way through this area opening up into the Charlottetown Harbour and is an islander favourite in the summer for boating, fishing, kayaking and jet skiing.
12, Christopher Drive is a quiet street off a small, water front subdivision with executive homes, perfect for families who just want to be that little further away and who crave a quieter life.
It is easily accessible to both Charlottetown and Summerside, and is in the catchment area for the highly regarded Bluefield family of schools who offer French immersion education from kindergarten.
“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe pace where we can go as
we are and not be questioned”.
– Maya Angelou
The property itself sits on a 0.93-acre lot, big enough for outside family fun but still easy to maintain.
The home has a welcoming front porch where you can sit and take in the distant water views from the front and side aspect.
As you enter the home you are welcomed into the formal living room with lots of windows and a cozy propane fireplace. There is a formal dining room and kitchen with large breakfast area – the main level is open and the space provides excellent sight-lines and a perfect area to entertain.
There is a useful mud room area with double closet and a half bath with laundry. From the mud room there is access to the double attached garage.
The basement comprises a big bedroom with double closets and office/den with the remainder of the basement used for storage and utilities.
Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with full 4-piece en-suite including a shower and soaker tub. The master bedroom also has a walk-in closet.
The upper level has two further family bedrooms and a family bathroom as well a huge bonus room over the garage which is currently used as a family/recreation room but would also make an excellent 4th bedroom on the second floor if it was required.
If beach life is on the horizon, you are only a 5-minute car drive to Canoe Cove Beach, a little gem on the islands South Shore, with and warm waters, perfect for swimming. Just sit and relax or try ‘digging for your dinner’ by clam digging the rich red sand. Supper is never too far away when you live in the country!
This is a lovely house in the most enviable of locations with excellent neighbours. Only minutes to the town of Cornwall, 15 minutes to Charlottetown and 35 minutes to Summerside.
