3 West Street- For Sale
Overlooking Fisher Cove
Trinity, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland
Some would argue that Trinity, in Trinity Bay is one of the most picturesque settings on the island of Newfoundland. This town, resplendent with streetscapes lined with an abundance of restored 18th and 19th century homes, is indeed a gem.
Trinity is one of the earliest communities in Newfoundland to be settled by Europeans, with most settlers having emigrated from the South of England. In the 1500’s, there was a migratory fishery underway and in 1615, Sir Richard Whitbourne held the first Court of Admiralty in Trinity. Trinity Harbour was described in the 1689 English Pilot as “the best and largest harbour in all the land”.
3 West Street is a two bedroom home, with about 1000 sq ft of living space, that was once located in Plate Cove, Bonavista Bay, where it served as a General Store. In 2001 it was relocated to Trinity by Gerald Hiscock and bought by a couple from British Columbia. It is with a heavy heart that the owners, one of whom has roots in Trinity and the other who has fallen in love with this special place, have decided that it is time to sell.
Since being purchased by the owners, the home has been fully renovated with an open concept from the living room to the kitchen to the sunroom and the views of both the town and Fisher Cove are extraordinary
The area will offer great enjoyment for the buyer, the buyer’s family and guests for all seasons. The renowned Skerwink Trail, rated by Travel and Leisure Magazine as one of the top 35 trails in North America and Europe, is located just across the harbour. Closer to home, the trail which circles Gun Hill will be on your doorstep and as you complete the hike, you can drop in at Trinity Mercantile for your freshly ground morning coffee, roasted on site. There are many more trails to discover that will take you to resettled communities and coastal hike that are unrivalled.

This general area in the Trinity Bight is a location in great demand in recent years with visitors from all over the world discovering all the pleasures this part of the world has to offer. There have been a number of visitors who have bought homes in the area and many others who have been fortunate enough to buy a suitable piece of land upon which to build a house. Most new builds are designed to complement the heritage architecture of the area. This is due in part to the fact that there is an individual living in the area, Frank LaPointe, who is an outstanding visual artist and designer and he is continually dealing with new clients wishing to build. There are many examples of his work to be seen in the area including the four primary buildings at Fisher’s Loft.
