Statement of Significance
Description of Historic Place
010 Barnes Road is a two and one half storey multiple dwelling row house located in the downtown core of St. John's. The designation is confined to the footprint of the building.
010 Barnes Road is designated a Registered Municipal Heritage Structure because it holds aesthetic value.
010 Barnes Road is a second Empire style row house with a mansard roof, bow windows and dormers and bracketing. It survives as a good example of a St. John's row house constructed in the period following the Great Fire of 1892. This house features many details that add to its Second Empire style, such as the eaves bracketing with moulded drops, dentils along the pediments above the main doors, above the bow window at the eave and even along the window at the front. The bow window also has a paneled base. This house also has a pedimented dormer which is located above the eaves.
