Description: 1173 Queen Victoria Avenue. Conc 2 SDS, Plan H-13, pt. Lots 1,2,3, The Canavan family likely built this house. Nellie M. Butler owned it from 1933 to 1961. The Davey family purchased it in 1993. It appears to have been built just after the turn of the century, circa the 1910-1915 period. The house rests among a well treed landscape, typical of many of the homes in the immediate Lorne Park neighbourhood. The house has been designed in a Bungalow style, popular after 1910. The Bungalow was a style developed in California which provided a high pitched roof allowing for the concealment of bedrooms and for more spacious living areas on the ground floor. The overall style was suited to harmonizing with the landscape, while the overall appearance is more of a one storey structure although most Bungalows are a storey and a half. The prominent features include extensive porches and overhanging eaves allowing for an extension of the living space into the outdoors. The Davey home is typical of the Bungalow style with its rustic stucco finish, grouped windows and window detailing. Designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act.
