Today I saw this charming Gothic revival house when we went to Waterloo to visit Malcolm. Although this little house really is in need of some TLC (tender loving care), it has remarkable details that just grabbed my attention, which of course meant I had to take some photos.
Gothic revival is one of the most common architectural styles in Ontario before the 1930s, characterized by arched windows, gables, and ornate trim.
Not only does this house have wonderful trim, but someone has also painted the front door in one of my favourite colours.
Everyone squint now and imagine there is no storm door in front of the lovely wooden door. Pretty, isn't it?
Love the dental moulding over the doorway.
Around the side there was a garage also ornamented with gorgeous trim which makes me think this house was from the early part of the 1900s when cars were being used.
Imagine putting this much work into trimming out a garage.
Beautiful colours and interesting patina, but sadly not the best way to care for a lovely historic home.
