Huntingdon Cottage - 1889

Here's another of Victoria's heritage houses. This one is described as "folk Victorian" with Queen Anne cosmetic features. This house was twice slated for demolition to make way for high-rises but was moved instead and restored in the early 1980's. In 1983, Norman Pearson received a Hallmark Society Award for his restoration work.

Oh this is exquisite! With the fence and roses, it feels like stepping back in time. How wonderful that this was saved.
