Description
Nestled within a stand of deciduous trees, the Stanley and Isabel Picken House 'Aintree' is a two and one-half storey plus basement shingled and half-timbered Arts and Crafts influenced residence, set on its original 0.6 hectare site adjacent to Brunette Creek in the Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park.
Heritage Value
'Aintree' is an example of the type of private country estate residences built in Burnaby outside of the established suburbs during the 1920s, and is representative of middle-class residential life during this time. Stanley Boyd Picken (1890-1950) and Isabel Grace Frederique Picken (1893-1971) purchased this property in 1927 to establish the Aintree Dog Kennels, which was the first in the province to breed Irish Setters. This country residence was completed in 1929. Stanley Picken worked at a variety of other jobs including his position as keeper of the Brunette River Caribou Dam. Considered a fine example of romantic architecture, 'Aintree' stands in harmony with its woodland setting. The north wing was added in a compatible style in 1932 using former bridge support beams from the old Caribou Road Bridge for foundation support. 'Aintree' retains most of its original exterior elements including its picturesque shingled siding and half-timbering, demonstrating the late influence of an Arts and Crafts sensibility considered compatible with a country lifestyle.
Defining Elements
Key elements that define the heritage character of 'Aintree' include its: - woodland setting adjacent to Brunette Creek in the Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park, with a deep setback from Cariboo Road - residential form, scale and massing as exemplified by its asymmetrical two and one-half storey plus basement height and irregular U-shaped plan - romantic Arts and Crafts influence as expressed in elements such as half-timbering on the upper storeys and hand-split cedar shake wall cladding - steeply pitched cross-gabled roofs with dormers connected by a lower central gabled roof, and 'cat slide' extension over side entry - regular fenestration, including wooden-sash casement windows with diamond leaded glass - red brick internal chimney with corbelled cap - associated landscape features, such as a curving driveway leading to the house, an early garage, grassed yard and a backdrop of mature deciduous trees

By the 1950s, the Burquitlam Neighbourhood was becoming a residential and commercial centre for the northeast section of Burnaby. The Sullivan Heights area was developed as a single-family residential area with the Lyndhurst School opening in 1954. The completion of the Lougheed Highway in 1953 encouraged more commercial and retail development and fostered the growth of the neighbourhood throughout this period.

Burnaby's first non-Native settler, William Holmes, selected land near the Brunette River on which to build his home in 1860. From this beginning, the neighbourhood of Burquitlam developed, fostered by its proximity to the North Road trail which linked it to New Westminster. In 1906, the Burquitlam Post Office opened and in 1910 the Hamilton Road school opened to serve the growing population of children in the area.

In 1921, the pamphlet "Beautiful Burnaby" was produced and it described the Burquitlam neighbourhood as such: "No part of Burnaby has more consistently laboured to advance its prosperity than Burquitlam. Enterprise and intelligence has hewn homes from the forest and developed land into highly productive gardens and poultry ranches. Burquitlam is the growing suburb to the north of the City of New Westminster. It is reached by the Sapperton carline direct from Edmonds being only a few minutes ride from New Westminster market. It is also served by the B.C.E.R. Burnaby Lake line and adjoins on the best golf links in Greater Vancouver."

The site of St. Stephen's Anglican Church is one of the historic landmarks of old Burquitlam. Originally this was part of the Alexander and Ethel Evans farm, Saint Phillians. Initial services for the church were held in the Evans home and later in the Burquitlam school. Alexander Evans donated this site to the Anglican Church in trust with the wish that it become a future church and consecrated ground for a family burial plot. In 1913, the parish raised the funds to build the first church. St. Stephen's was consecrated by Bishop de Pencier on September 28, 1913.

As a result, in 1965, Cameron Road Elementary was built to alleviate overcrowding issues. The school opened with 151 pupils. The school was expanded in 1969 when three classrooms were added and again in 1971 when eights more rooms and a library were built.
