10 Waterford Heights South- For Sale
The Waterford Valley is a very special and unique part of the City of St. John’s.
One thing that makes this area so special is that Bowring Park is the focal point and 10 Waterford Heights is in the “back pocket” of the Park as it is about a one minute walk to the West Gate, from where one can access the 200 acres of land. The park started as a 50 acre site that was donated by Bowring Brothers in 1911 to commemorate their 100th anniversary with design work illustrated below by Rudolf Cochius

Here one can enjoy: a fully Accessible Playground and Splash Pad; Outdoor Swimmimg Pool and Tennis Courts; Soccer Pitch; Skate Park; Man-made Duck Pond which is home to swans and ducks; Conservatory; and Walking Trails along the Waterford and South Brook Rivers that are part of the Grand Concourse, an award-winning integrated walking network.
A door to door hike of the South Brook Trail from 10 Waterford Heights South will consume a vigorous half hour or more leisurely 45 minutes.
A second reason which makes this a special place is the fact that the land, located on the edge of the west end farming district, is arable with great topsoil and the gardening zone is closer to a zone 6 than zone 5. So bring your green thumb and enjoy nature’s bounty.
Yes, this home is somewhat dated (but no stucco!). However, one can move in now as it is indeed a totally habitable property with upgraded wiring with 200 amp service, pony panel for connection for a generator, large double garage, three bedrooms, living room with fireplace, kitchen, dining room and basement rec room. Over time, the occupant can readily handle whatever updating is warranted, unless of course a buyer decides that a major reno is in order with huge potential to “go up and go out”. The expansive lot lends itself to a significant extension to the footprint of the house. In fact the lot measures approximately 100 by 150.
Here are a few photos of the property:
The area has seen significant development in recent years with many new homes being built and many homes that have been extensively renovated and the area clearly warrants significant development of this property at the new owner’s choosing.
Check out some of the photos of these new builds (another house currently being designed for Waterford Heights South with construction planned for this summer) in the immediate area in recent years:
Asking price for this special opportunity to purchase in the back pocket of Bowring Park is $429,000
