Extended Authorized Battle Leaves Heritage Property in Disrepair

A delegated heritage property within the capital metropolis is falling into disrepair as a authorized battle between the house owners and the town continues to wind its means by way of the courts.

Bryn Mawr, often known as Baird Cottage, on New Cove Highway, is a stately Queen Anne model nation home in-built 1907 on land that was as soon as on the outskirts of the town.

The previous proprietor and KMK Properties, which bought the house and land, sued the capital metropolis for $8.7 million for giving the house heritage standing—a transfer they argue halted the developer’s plans for the property.

The Supreme Court docket dismissed the lawsuit final 12 months, however the developer appealed.

Within the meantime, the boarded-up residence, which sits idle and empty, has been focused by vandals.

Luke Quinton of the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Belief says the house and its like, might by no means be seen once more.

He says tearing down a home like that “hurts the town’s id, and the way we give it some thought.”
