This tiny cottage built in 1926 was certainly getting derelict and had lost some of its character with the closed-in front porch. The location is on a ridge with a great view of the city and mountains. Even with the scaffolding to show off the potential view that a taller house would have, it took over 6 months to sell. Maybe it was too scary to climb up! It was demolished in 2012.
On 17th Avenue this 1926 cottage had a glassed-in front porch. To the left is a house of similar age or maybe older, which was renovated perhaps 10 years ago, with the character retained. However, the grey house met a different fate, demolished in the fall of 2010. It has been replaced by a very modern house and laneway house.
