A Yorkville Home
While walking to the Icefest in theYorkville neighbourhood I had a nice tour of some of the wonderfully restored old homes found there. Yorkville is located just east of the Annex and could be called East Annex. This home was built in 1875 and is historically designated and is thought to be one of the first examples of the Toronto style "Bay-n-Gable" which can be found all over the city in semi-detached homes from the early 20th century. I think the sun porch and those round structures along the side are more recent additions but can't be sure.
This used to be the suburbs,
Oh, I always wanted to live in a house like this!
I actually like those additions, they add some umphh to it and it must be wonderful to be able to sit there with a good book, a cuppa something and watch the falling snow!
This house is truly a beauty.
pretty place! i'd love to sit in that sun room.
Can only imagine what the interior is like. Like stepping back into time maybe?
It's a beautiful old home Pat.. American houses always seem so big.. makes my wee house look like a cottage :)
p.s. not really sure what the red circles are for Pat, it's a temporary bus station so they might end up being part of the new crossover.
Even if they are additions, they've been blended into the rest of the structure fairly well.
It's a great looking old place, very homely.
It is a beautiful house and you captured from a good angle! ;-)
I like it more than those built modern.
Have a good weekend!
The architectural style is very appealing!
That's a big home. Nice but a little too big for me.
Encantador blog el tuyo, un placer haberme pasado por tu espacio.
Saludos y buen fin de semana.
What a great house!
Fabulous house, RedPat. The round parts on the side do look a bit out of place. I would wager that they are add-ons, but who knows?
