The Timeless Beauty on Indian Grove

The detached residence at 4 Indian Grove is designed in the bungalow style that became popular in Ontario in the 1920s. The one and-a-half storey masonry structure features an expansive side gable roof clad in terra cotta tile, exposed gable ends and rafters and leaded and stained glass windows. The yellow brick walls featuring stepped buttresses at the front corners are set on a decorative concrete block foundation. The main entranceway with Credit sandstone steps set between low stone capped brick walls and pronounced brackets supporting a flat roof canopy is set at the north end of the front (east) elevation. An enclosed sun porch with a band of windows and shed dormer on the upper level completes the composition of the front elevation. The door and window openings are generally segmental arch shaped with radiating brick voussoirs. The window openings are typically fitted with wood casements comprising a smaller upper pane of leaded glass in a fleur-de-lis pattern and a larger lower pane of clear glazing. A bay window on the north elevation has stained glass. A square bay along the south elevation fitted with three typically detailed windows denotes the dining room on the interior. Many of the windows retain their original storm windows and copper mesh screens.

The residence is situated on a 50-ft. by 150-ft. lot on the west side of Indian Grove, just north of Howard Park Avenue. Driveways lead into the property on the south and north sides of the house. The south driveway is original and provides access to a single car garage that dates to the construction of the residence. The north driveway was added in the 1960s. {\”InclusionColumns\” : [ [\”main floor\”, \”large Foyer \& front hall\”, \”Stained glass windows\”, \”bevelled fleur-de-lis lead glass windows\”, \”luminous sunroom\”, \”livingroom w fireplace\”, \”formal diningroom\”, \”chef”s kitchen w breakfast nook\”, \”4 pC bathroom\”, \”3 bedrooms\”, \”hardwood floors\”], [\”second floor\”, \”huge bathroom w unique shower and bubble tub\”, \”master bedroom retreat w sitting room\”, \”office/Bedroom\”, \”Bedroom/dream Walk-In\”, \”Multiple storage closets\”, \”hardwood floors\”, \”bevelled fleur-de-lis lead glass windows\”], [\”Lower level\”, \”8 foot ceilings\”, \”huge floor plan\”, \”wood burning stone fireplace\”, \”bright laundry room\”, \”second eat-in kitchen\”, \”4 pc bath\”, \”two storage rooms\”, \”multiple storage closets\”, \”utility room\”, \”walk out to backyard\”], [\”exterior\”, \”double private drives\”, \”single car garage\”, \”landscaped front \& Rear yards\”, \”large private rear yard with pavillion\”, \”quality concrete work\”, \”credit sandstone steps to entry\”, \”side entry to basement/main\”]]}
