Description du lieu patrimonial

The Bamford House is located at 292 Queen Street South, on the northwest corner of Queen Street South and Princess Street, in the former village of Streetsville, now the City of Mississauga. The one-and-a-half-storey house scored-brick residence was constructed in circa 1875.

The property was designated, by the City Mississauga, in 1982, for its heritage value, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act (By-law 409-82).

Valeur patrimoniale

The Bamford House is associated with Christopher Bamford, who was a prominent local builder, who built the Bamford House in circa 1875.

The Bamford House is a good example of the whimsical extravagance and exuberance of the High Victorian Eclecticism. It took the best elements from earlier architectural styles. The house follows a basic L-shaped plan and is one-and-a-half-storeys in height, with a gable roof. A collection of styles are seen in the Italianate windows, doors and paired brackets, the Gothic south bay and French Renaissance Revival pediment window. The pierced and fretted woodwork in the gables, around the verandah and in the corner brackets is distinctive of the Queen Anne style, as is the colourful use of contrasting colours to highlight certain elements. An acute consciousness of material is exemplified by the frame walls, which are covered with scored wooden siding, in imitation of the far more prestigious ashlar. Together, the different styles blend nicely to create a truly vernacular creation.
