Description
The Montague and Marcia Moore Residence, situated on Sperling Avenue, is a one and one-half storey wood-frame house with Tudor Revival elements such as half-timbering and diamond-leaded windows. The landscaping includes a large hedge at the front of the property. It is located on a lakefront site within the scenic Deer Lake Park Heritage Precinct.
Heritage Value
Located within the historic Deer Lake Park neighbourhood, the Montague and Marcia Moore Residence is valued as an example of the late persistence of the historicist influence on domestic architecture, at a time when it was still considered the height of good taste for a house to be designed in a recognizable period revival style. This is reflected in the rustic Tudor Revival elements such as half-timbering, waney-edged boards in the gables, brick nogging, diamond-leaded windows, and bird houses in the main gable. The cobblestone chimney, the major focal point of the house, was constructed from river stones that were transported from Lynn Canyon. Meticulously retained in its original condition, this was the last home to be constructed by the Moore family before the Second World War construction supply rationing took effect. It was built by Danish contractor, Hans Jorgensen Hau (1878-1944), who had a flair for the construction of homes with a rustic character, and shares a number of design features with Hau’s own house at 5070 Canada Way.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Montague and Marcia Moore Residence include its: - location on a lakefront site, within the Deer Lake Park Heritage Precinct - residential form, scale and massing as expressed by its one and one-half storey height, rectangular plan and front gabled roof - wood-frame construction - Tudor Revival elements such as stucco and wood half-timbering, diamond-leaded casement windows, scroll-cut brackets, brick nogging on the front façade, bird houses in the main front gable, waney-edged boards at gable peaks, plank front door with strap hinges and a prominent external cobblestone chimney - associated landscape features such as a granite wall, and mature coniferous and deciduous trees
