Gothic Revival Cottage

You can still find many examples of this style of home around Toronto and in fact it was the single most popular style in Canada up until 1950. Many of the small ones in the city have had additions put on the back, leaving the front facade intact as is the case with this one which is said to be quite large inside. The unusual thing about this particular building is that it is actually a semi-detached pair of homes. I've always loved these little cottages!
I took this pic while taking part in one of the 100s of walks going on last weekend as part of Jane's Walk in honour of Jane Jacobs and her ideas on neighbourhoods.

It looks so tiny! Very deceptive.

How quaint, and they fetch quite a high price on the real estate market!

I love those small houses. There were Jane's walks going on in our neighbouring town too.
My signs are from The Big Apple.

I can see why you would like this place, it has such a homey feel to it, almost cottage-like.

Looks very pretty with the woodwork around the gable and doors.
