Description: 241 Eglinton Avenue East. Conc 1 EHS, lot 1 Eż. This was a vernacular Regency one-and-a-half storey, three bay house, which had a rectangular plan with a one storey, three bay addition to the back, forming an L-shaped plan. The foundations were rubble, and the walls coarse stone and mortar, stuccoed. The medium pitched gable roof had boxed eaves, a plain frieze, and cornice returns. There were four internally bracketed chimneys, one at the north end of the kitchen addition, one at the west gable end, and two at the east, one of which was a later addition. The original front entrance had a rectangular transom over the door only, and long sidelights. John Carberry bought the land from Thomas Anderson in 1836, and the family lived there until 1962. Previously listed on the Heritage Register, it was demolished in 1985. This photo is an example of the rubble foundation.
