We often get comments and questions about the old architecture of the two homes that make up our clinic, so we decided to do some digging up ourselves. We learned that both buildings have official cultural heritage status.
387 Burwell St, built c1900, is a Dutch Colonial. The Dutch Colonial is characterized by a gambrel roof which often, but doesn’t always, extend over a front porch. Generally constructed before 1918.
390 Colborne St, built in 1895, is a Queen Anne. That means it’s characterized as a decorative variant on a general Victorian architectural style. Often but not exclusively characterized by irregular outlines and silhouettes, frequently with gables, two-story bays, tall and decorated chimneys, and often including a variety of building materials.
