Commentaires à propos des plans ou la valeur physique réelle de l’immeuble -and-a-half-storey vernacular Carpenter Gothic house. The end gables and the steeply pitched central front gable have fine "gingerbread" bargeboard trim, which was featured in the LACAC Poster, "Gables of Burlington (1989). The window in the front gable is arched. It and the other windows, double-hung two-over-two, have their original frames. A small window at the rear and the many-paned side window in the original summer kitchen are also oyiginal. The rectangular windows have simple drip edges at the top. Most of the original shutters remain and are in good condition. The interior has been altered, but many original doors, including the front door, remain.

The chimney on the right side of this house is also missing; stove-

Notes on Context The location of the house at the comer of Pearl Street and Maria Street, next to Lions Park, makes it a neighbourhood landmark, of importance in maintaining the character of this heritage district. Its large well[nowiki]-[/nowiki]kept garden also makes an important contribution. Two mature trees have recently been lost, but the 1991 streetscaping of Maria and Pearl Streets, with periodstyle streetlamps and three newly planted Maples, enhances the heritage qualities of the nighbourhood.
