Description of Historic Place
437 Victoria Street is located on the west side of Victoria Street, west of Thornton Avenue in the City of London. The property consists of a single-storey red-brick residence and garage, constructed in 1925.
The property was designated by the City of London in 1992 for its heritage value under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act (By-law L.S.P.-3159-262).
437 Victoria Street is an excellent example of an Arts and Crafts bungalow. It has a low pitch gable roof and exposed structural elements that are indicative of this style. Built in 1925, this stucco and brick house contains many fine architectural features. The projecting decorative beams on the front facade and the decorative purlins, combined with the simplicity of the stucco, give the house a stark quality. Tripartite windows with their original storms adorn the facade. The original front porch features tongue and groove flooring and brick piers. There is also an original stained glass lantern lighting the front entrance.
The garage located at the rear of the property, constructed in the Tudor style with timbering and rolled roofing, is also noteworthy.
