Windsor

1989 Ontario Street

This 1925 built Tudor Revival, listed on the heritage inventroy but not designated, sold last summer. It’s one I’ve always been fond, of, but it’s usually overshadowed by it’s neighbour to the east, the Low-Martin House.

The new owners slapped a giant Lapico Renovations sign on the front lawn. [be warned if you click the Lapico link, the site is built with flash and has annoying music that loads with each page – turn off your speakers first, before cliciking]

The place has been gutted. Roof removed, and the inside reframed. Seeing as Lapico specializes in “new” homes, they along with the new owners, hopefully have the sense to restore the tudor elements, and allow it to continue to blend in with the neighbourhood.

I have heard that many people in the neighbourhood are nervous & concerned about how it will look once it’s done.

Hopefully the finished product looks like it did before, and not like a stucco clad suburban cookie cutter. We’ll definitely have to keep an eye on this one.
