Inglewood Drive, Burlington

Dan Chalykoff Heritage Consultancy Project

Sited on the southeast corner of Inglewood Drive and Lakeshore Road in Burlington (formerly Port Nelson), the subject house is a split level, stucco clad bungalow with a central peaked hip extending a gable roof, a raised ground floor, and a decidedly axial layout that prevails on only the north and west elevations. The west (front) elevation is divided into 5 bays with each bay repeating a round headed motif. The segmental arch over the front door is repeated in the projecting central portico. The four arched windows, the elevational symmetry, and the eyebrow roof vents give this house a unique pavilion-like appearance characteristic of garden or estate buildings of the Picturesque style. The house was constructed in 1925 while the mass to the north was added circa 1961.
