Description: 7085 Pond Street. Conc 3 WHS pt Lot 11, TOR5. This property sits on land once owned by Francis Silverthorn and William Gooderham. It is a very modest workers' style cottage that has seen very few changes in the last 50-70 years. It is a modest one-and-a-half storey structure of stacked plank construction. Originally the house was finished in stucco but now has a combination of wood siding and insulbrick. The once open front porch has been enclosed. There is a small rear addition. To the rear of the house and set by the north boundary is a detached garage built circa 2005. The house has had little alteration and therefore is one of the better examples of traditional housing within the Village from the mid-nineteenth century. The house is located near the street at the front of the lot, which continues through to Second Line West. The location of the building on the original lot size is traditional in its setback and highly visible from the streetscape. The property is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act and is located in the Meadowvale Village Heritage Conservation District.
