636 University Avenue West

This old Arts & Crafts bungalow on University Ave. west, between Janette and Caron, always intrigued me. A throwback to the days when University was lined with residences all the to downtown.

Sadly this house which was long neglected, and only used for storage, went up in flames this past Thursday night. The fire department has listed the cause as “undetermined”, and the city has issued a demolition order on the property.

It’s too bad, although it was surrounded on all sides by commercial properties, it was still a good example of the architectural style. Another hole in the Windsor streetscape.
