NOTES
Additional Information:This English Cottage design appears in contrast to the Meyer house (1219 Algoma - OS 17/21), to be a more contained design and as a result appears more modest. The exterior is stucco with stonework around entrance and chimney. Roofs are padded to simulate thatch. This residence is significant as an example of the English Cottage style. The majority of the large houses constructed during the 1920's and early 1930's tended to draw on Tudor designs and emulate large country houses. The two English cottage houses in the city complement these largerm sprawling designs.
