Description du lieu patrimonial

The Bottomley House is a Municipal Heritage Property situated on a single lot in the City of Saskatoon. The designation applies to a two-storey, wood-frame house built in 1912 at 1118 College Drive, one of the city's main thoroughfares.

Valeur patrimoniale

The heritage significance of the Bottomley House lies in its architecture. Representative of the Queen Anne Revival style, the house features an irregular plan, varying elevations, several bay windows, a wrap-around verandah and a corner turret. Designed to mix elements from various architectural styles in unique and picturesque ways, the Queen Anne style was commonly used in the early-twentieth century when owners wanted to portray a sense of wealth and importance in the community. The property is also notable for the historical integrity of its interior and exterior form.

The heritage significance of the property also lies in its association with Saskatoon's economic prosperity in the early-twentieth century. The property's original owner, Richard Bottomley, built the house in 1912 as his primary residence. Bottomley was a real estate developer who owned large tracts of land and, as such, required a prominent and distinct home that evoked a sense of prosperity. The home was later purchased by Richard Kerr, another real estate developer, who also owned large tracts of prime real estate near the University of Saskatchewan and downtown areas. The property's location across from the main gates of the university contributes to its status as a prominent local landmark.
