Description of Historic Place
41 Bloomingdale Road is on the north side of Bloomingdale Road, west of Prince Street, in the City of Kitchener. The one-and-a-half storey pink brick house was constructed in circa 1860.
The property was designated, by the City of Kitchener, in 1989, for its heritage value, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act (By-law 89-27).
41 Bloomingdale Road is a good representation of Georgian architecture. It was constructed in circa 1860, in the former Village of Bridgeport. It boasts an exterior clad in pink brick with a gable roof. Although smaller than most Georgian houses, it presents a symmetrical design with double hung six over six paned windows, typical of Georgian style. The front porch, made entirely of wood, with turned posts, railings, small round spindle detailing along the roofline and brackets at the porch post corners, creates a welcoming entrance.
