Description: 23-25 Peter Street South. Plan 300W pt Lots 7.8. A one-and-a-half storey building that is located to rear of the lot which provides for a very deep front yard with many mature trees. There are three large dormers on the front and side facades. (The rear was not accessible to view). The windows in the front dormer are multipaned. The building is finished in horizontal siding. At the height of the bungalow's popularity, Elizabeth Anne (Annie) Dennison built this example. She mortgaged the property for $1,000 in 1914, two years after she had acquired it. The frame house with its sunrooms is first illustrated on the 1928 fire insurance plan, and a 1937 photograph published in Verna Mae Weeks' history of Port Credit shows the original sunrooms. Annie Dennison's husband, Herbert, was a mechanic. Herbert and Annie Dennison were Verna Mae's grandparents and the photograph in her book shows that the house was called "Cedar Lodge". The deep front yard, which is not common in old Port Credit, sets off the house in a parkland setting of lawn and mature trees. The property is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act and is located within the Old Port Credit Village Heritage Conservation District.
