Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
3890 Cambridge Street and 3896 Cambridge Street are nearly identical twins. These modestly-sized pattern book residences each feature a side gabled roof with a central dormer and a central entrance, as well as interesting Craftsman-style detailing such as the bracketed verandah columns, triangular eave brackets and exposed rafter tails. Though the original exterior siding has been covered by a later stucco cladding, the house maintains its original double-hung windows with elaborate multi-paned upper sashes. Built as a revenue property, it was owned by the Colonial Finance Company in 1915.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
3890 Cambridge Street and 3896 Cambridge Street are nearly identical twins. These modestly-sized pattern book residences each feature a side gabled roof with a central dormer and a central entrance, and an open front verandah. Both houses have later coverings over their original siding; 3890 Cambridge was stuccoed, and this house received more recent vinyl siding, indicating the periodic pressure on homeowners to “upgrade” through the use of new, applied products. Built as a revenue property by the Colonial Finance Company, this house was owned by David Caldwell, the manager of the Caldwell & Carson real estate company in 1915.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This house was constructed as an investment rental property by Nova Scotia-born Dr. James Collins Farish (1866-1952). Farish was a Vancouver physician and surgeon and an eye, ear, nose & throat specialist; he retired in 1941 after fifty years of practice. In 1903, he married his first wife, Annie Gower Revely (died 1922). His second wife, Ella Jean Morrison (1887-1953) was originally from Winslow, Quebec. With its hipped roof and gabled projections, this house displays the typical elements of the Edwardian era domestic architecture. Features such as exposed rafter tails, paired square porch columns and bracketed bay windows display the emerging influence of the Arts and Crafts style. The ground floor windows are excellent examples of the multiple assemblies of casement, fixed and transom windows favoured during the era. A recent restoration project has extensively altered the original appearance and character of this impressive home.

Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This beautifully-detailed house displays a highly sophisticated mix of fashionable Arts and Crafts elements. The asymmetrical design has stacked inset verandahs on one side, with the ground floor verandah wrapping around the side of the house. The second floor verandah has an arched opening, supported by short versions of the ground floor columns and accessed by French doors with geometric patterned, multi-paned glazing. A semi-circular lunette window lights the attic, and banked windows with leaded transoms are used on the front façade. Decorative details include triangular eave brackets and square verandah columns with distinctive bracketted capitals. The house has survived in original condition except for a later asbestos siding that was applied over the original shingle siding, and the enclosure of the side verandah. The home was owned by J.R. Dawson and Frances Abigail Dawson (née Thompson, 1853-1938) from 1915 until Frances’ death in 1938.
