Petty Harbour - Maddox Cove Community Profile

Petty Harbour has been inhabited since 1598. Maddox Cove, "around the corner" from Petty Harbour, came into being when building lots in Petty Harbour became hard to find due to its steep hills and limited land to develop. It offers its residents a quiet community while boasting that it's the “most photographed and filmed place in Newfoundland Labrador".

Petty Harbour - Maddox Cove homes edge the Atlantic Ocean and offer outstanding views, with icebergs and whales moving by in the spring and summer. The beautiful East Coast trail system runs very close to the community. There are a number of churches in the town and children attend school in the Goulds, a nearby suburb of St. John's. The town is a favorite tourist destination and locals from the surrounding areas frequent Chafe's Landing for their sumptuous fish and chips.  

For the most part, Petty Harbour is home to older, more traditional homes, while Maddox Cove, with an abundance of available land, has seen a spike in new home construction. These homes range from one-of-a-kind upscale homes to colorful townhouses and entry-level bungalows.
