Description
Residential building.
Heritage Value
This elegant house is a prominent local landmark, with a bellcast hipped roof, deep bracketed eaves and Doric porch columns. The use of the various Colonial Revival styles had gained new popularity during the 1920s at the time of the American Sesquicentennial, as is evident in the symmetrical façade composition and detailing. It was the home of William Alexander Blott (1878-1962), a shipper at the Broder Canning Company and later a real estate agent, and his wife Edith Carruthers Blott (née Shaw, 1890-1972), who were married in 1913. It is one of the few remaining larger estate homes along the formerly rural Douglas Road.

Photograph of three unidentified men standing on Douglas Road (later renamed in part Canada Way) with Laurel Street in the background on the left and the site of Saint Theresa's Roman Catholic Church as a lot with blackened stumps. The church was located at the southeast corner of Canada Way and Laurel Street. According to an accompanying note located with the photograph, the first church building burned to the ground the night before it was to be blessed. Insurance for the church had been arranged for by Colonel Dorrell only hours before it was burned and even though signatures had not been affixed to the policy, the insurance company honoured the claim. The second building was smaller and had no basement. Father Trainer was the first priest. This church was torn down in 1974 and a new church building was erected across the road on Canada Way.
