Hermitage Estate is a developing community on the western side of the island, approximately five miles from the city of St John’s. It has a larger ratio of expats to locals than other parts of the island. Its environs embrace the tourism sector with Jolly Harbour, Pearns Point, which is a multi-million dollar development slated to be completed within the next five years, and the Hermitage Bay Hotel, which is just down the road a bit. The lovely York Beach adjacent to the hotel is shared by hotel visitors and islanders.
Dining and shopping, including a branch of Epicurean supermarket, are close in Jolly Harbour.
The land is 0.70 acres in area, rectangular in shape, and flat with a raised elevation which offers good drainage. The lot has a lovely ocean views of Jolly Harbour to the south, Pearns Point Development to the north west, and bays dotted with yachts in between.
