Stunning cliffside trail through national park begins outside the door and ends at Cabot Tower where Marconi received the 1st transatlantic radio signal in 1901. Whale watching from the trail or harbour sightseeing boats. Seabirds nest in the cliffs and shed roofs nearby - watch the chicks hatch in June. Downtown offers a very sparky arts scene with great music, theatre, dance and art galleries.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Newfoundland journalist & musician, we have lived in Outer Battery for 25 years.
Why the Owner Chose St. John's: The Outer Battery is a truly special place. It feels like a place from another time - a magical place. Inhabited since 1675 by fishermen, it has the feel of a small, separate village community. Here we speak of 'going into Town' even though it's only 10 minutes walk! Neighbours are retired fishermen, longshoremen (stevedores), potters, poets, musicians, journalists, students.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Sitting on the deck watching everything from a rowboat to a cruise liner come through the Narrows. Seeing cormorants and a family of otters at waterside. Catching a glimpse of eagles fishing in the Narrows or the seagull chicks on Jack's twine-store roof. Witnessing wisps of fog creep in the narrows. Hearing the lonely sound of Fort Amherst foghorn. Wandering up among the higgledy-piggledly houses of Fort Waldegrave. Chatting with neighbours who all have a great story. Walking the North Head Trail in July and seeing whales spout. Catching some great entertainment downtown and being able to walk home into a quiet little separate world.
