Barrie Red or orange brick are certainly standard in Victorian buildings. This L-shaped house is very much in the style of the Ontario Farmhouse. Most farmhouses had a veranda of sorts, but this one shows no sign of one. The dichromatic brickwork adds a Gothic flavor, as does the vergeboarding. The lozenge pattern in the high gable was a common decoration. The windows have eyebrow lintels with coloured keystones that seem more Italianate than Gothic.
