    Hmmm….I’m wondering if I’m seeing a Palliser Bros. design under the rock and stone cladding? Maybe not, but the window configuration on the tower section is reminiscent of a popular Palliser design. No matter, the exterior is interesting and the one interior view indicates a fair degree of integrity. It would be nice to see some more interior photos. The lavish exterior suggests this may have been a mansion grade home originally.

      Survey information confirms the builder, Irish mason Daniel Burns (1832-1905), who bought the lot in 1875. There’s no architect attributed and Burns might well have followed a published Palliser design.

    The stonework on the exterior is nicely done. I love those magnificent barge boards, though! Perhaps there will be more pictures of this beautiful home!
