Description
Located on Rumble Street in the Alta Vista neighbourhood, the Roy and Catherine Cummins House is a one and one-half storey, front-gabled rustic Arts and Crafts house, distinguished by the use of log construction and fieldstone verandah columns.
Heritage Value
The Roy and Catherine Cummins House is valued for its association with the early settlement of Burnaby. Its construction is linked to the opening of the Burnaby Lake Interurban line, which ran through the central part of Burnaby, providing access between Vancouver and New Westminster. The accessibility of the area, combined with spectacular views of the Fraser River, made Alta Vista a desirable Edwardian era middle-class neighbourhood. The house was built in 1912 for Roy Franklin Cummins and his wife, Catherine Emma Cummins (née Cook), shortly after their marriage. Roy Cummins was a lineman with the B.C. Electric Railway Company, an economic driving force in Burnaby. The Roy and Catherine Cummins House is a unique and sophisticated local example of a rustic Arts and Crafts structure. Roy Cummins constructed the house from logs cleared for the construction of Rumble Street; the house is also unique for its use of local fieldstone for its verandah columns and chimney. Reminiscent of park lodge architecture, it exemplifies the semi-wild nature of the area as it was being opened for subdivision. It is also an indication of how far Burnaby was removed from the more urban lifestyles and attitudes of Vancouver and New Westminster.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Roy and Catherine Cummins House include its: - location on a steeply sloping site in the Alta Vista neighbourhood of Burnaby - residential form, scale and massing as expressed by its one and one-half storey height plus full basement, front-gabled roof and shed dormer, full open front verandah and partial rear verandah - peeled log construction including notched corner posts, log verandah roof framing and log balustrades - masonry elements including fieldstone verandah columns and internal chimney, and board-formed concrete foundations with fieldstone aggregate - rustic Arts and Crafts features such as the use of natural materials, tapered columns, front door with sidelights and exposed eave purlins - original windows, including wooden sash casement windows in multiple assembly with continuous transoms - interior features including fir-panelled walls, wooden mouldings and fieldstone fireplace - associated landscape features including terraced stone walls
