Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This modest residence was built for Lewis Baker Physick (1905-1971), a freight dispatcher for B.C. Motor Transport Company who later worked for B.C. Hydro, and Millicent Physick (née Edwards, 1894-1971), a hairdresser, who lived here until their respective deaths. Situated on a terraced lot with stone-clad retaining walls, this home was influenced by the British Arts and Crafts style, which remained popular throughout the 1930s. Such stylistic influence can be seen in the second floor overhang, which is supported by false beams, leaded casement windows and steeply pitched roof and front gable. The roofline is enhanced by a jerkin-headed roof on the front gable. Apart from the addition of a later south elevation extension, the house remains in excellent original condition. Located on an elevated site, this residence has an unobstructed view of downtown Vancouver and Burrard Inlet.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This house was built for Lucy Lillian Turner (1881-1959), the daughter of Captain Andrew Jackson Cates of North Vancouver. Lucy Turner was the widow of Robert Ketchson Turner (1871-1918), who was a purser for her father’s Terminal Steam Navigation Company. They were married in 1913; Robert died during the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic and was buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. Located on an elevated site, this residence boasts an unobstructed view of downtown Vancouver and Burrard Inlet and is situated amidst a context of homes of a similar age and scale. Demonstrating the late influence of the Craftsman style, this one and one-half storey house has triangular eave brackets and exposed rafter tails and purlins. A central wall dormer projects over the central front entry. Though the integrity of the house has been compromised with a later coat of stucco over the original siding, it maintains its double-hung wooden windows and original form, scale and massing.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
Built at a time when historical styles were favoured for domestic construction, this charming cottage residence was built for Mary Seymour Sutcliffe (1870-1959), the wife of retired painter Arthur Sutcliffe (1863-1932). It was inspired by the British Arts and Crafts movement, as displayed in the half-timbering, rounded door hood and the picturesque, jerkin-headed roof with exposed purlins. While this house has a Boundary Road address, the house faces north instead of west, facing an elevated and extraordinary view of Burrard Inlet.
