Mount Pearl - A Dream Come True. If ever there is a place in Atlantic Canada that makes a dream of life on an island come true, it's Mount Pearl-Newfoundland and Labrador. Imagine living on the largest city on a Newfoundland island with the North Atlantic as far as the eye can see? Wake each day to the clean, fresh scent of sea air without losing a bit of urban amenities. Mount Pearl history began with the English Commander James Pearl. He was granted one thousand acres of land which became the Canadian city of Mount Pearl officially in 1988 when it was incorporated.
The Growth of Mount Pearl
With a hint of the English love of horse racing, Mount Pearl became a desirable place for the wealthy to enjoy this sport. Today, Mount Pearl has a population of fewer than 25,000 residents. It is geographically located on the Avalon Peninsula in the southeastern Newfoundland. As the population began to increase in the 1940s, Mount Pearl enjoyed a surge in industry and the demand for housing.
Business and Residential Areas
As with many Canadian cities, residents are afforded well organized locations of business and residential districts. This is a much appreciated feature of Mount Pearl that sparkles with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Due to its relatively new growth in the past half century, buildings in the city's center are a tribute to modern engineering designs. Most homes and commercial buildings here reflect an ultra modern style with clean lines and a full compliment of conveniences. It's best to consult with a real estate agent regarding availability. New and existing home sites are available and are highly affordable. This includes attached condos, single family homes and rentals. Mount Pearl-Newfoundland and Labrador is the choice of discerning individuals seeking an island lifestyle.
