Description: 10 Hurontario Street. Plan 300E, pt. Lot1. This structure is a two storey brick building with a medium pitched gable roof. The Gummerson House is a good example of combining selected architectural features from the Queen Anne Style with Edwardian Classicism in a residential structure. Elements of the Edwardian Classicism Style are demonstrated by the balanced simplicity and order seen in the facades, smooth and fine-jointed brickwork, the generous fenestration, lug sills and segmental arch lintels, and tall chimneys. Queen Anne influences include the projecting two-storey bay on the front facade, the broad gables and pediments, and the shingled gables. These styles were popular in the early twentieth century, and would therefore supplement the suggested construction date of c.1920. Located at the Hurontario Street entrance into the historic commercial core of Port Credit, the siting of 10 Hurontario Street is of considerable interest as it has a high visual impact on those entering Port Credit from this northern entrance. The Gummerson House is part of a significant turn-of-the-century residential streetscape along Hurontario Street from Lakeshore Road to Park Street. Together with the heritage dwellings at 20 Hurontario Street and 90 High Street East, the west side of Hurontario Street has remained intact. Listed on the Heritage Register.
