I was lucky enough to find some history on this beauty! The abandoned nineteenth century home is actually a heritage home. The two-storey brick structure exhibits Italianate elements. These included rectangular T-shaped footings, with a low-pitch, hipped roof, & three-bay front facade with tall and narrow windows.
Ornate stone lintels are present over each window. The main entrance includes a projecting frontispiece with a high pitch, decorative vergeboard, and a single door with transom and sidelights.
The brick design is dichromatic with quoining along the exterior corners, and diamond motif below a decorative cornice. One brick chimney is located at the north elevation.
An extension was added to the east elevation and had a hipped roof, side entrance way and completed with the same dichromatic patterning as the main part of the structure. A garage was added to the south elevation, and has a gable roof with the same dichromatic patterning.
Several barns & outbuildings (garages, sheds, etc.) were located south of the structure but were demolished between 2015 & 2016.
This was a nice & easy explore to start the day. The home is listed as a heritage home but as I have seen with many, often times nothing is done to actually preserve them. This beauty does have many unique features & is still easily able to be saved. Lets hope that actually happens. There were numerous other so called heritage homes in the area that were left to rot & eventually had to be torn down due to extensive damage.
