circa. 1899


Thomas Randell House

Built around 1899 by Thomas Randell, this house stands in a prominent location in the neighbourhood of Rolling Cove. The home is an excellent surviving example of the popular double peak design. This twin steeply peaked dormer style is unique to Bonavista and can be attributed to master builder Ronald Strathie.

This turn of the century home features two over two windows with wide window casings, significant rain caps and decorative brackets. Some original features that have been reinstated on the gable ends of the home. This includes windows in the third-floor attic space, a wide triangular panel topped with dental mouldings and the Bonavista roundel. The Bonavista roundel is an architectural feature unique to Bonavista and can be seen on many historic properties built by the Strathie firm.

During the restoration process, the large porch that was added in the 1970s was demolished and a linhay was added to scale.


Price Range: $200,000 to $250,000.
