Cheers to the lovely red brick homes on Church Street! This one built in 1889 by James Corcoran, a Stratford business man, has a charmingly irregular design. A great example of late Victorian architecture; decorative bargeboards with a sunburst motif, detailed chimneys and brickwork, interesting rooflines and plenty of stained glass. The unique double front doors with bevelled glass were added in 1900. Our favourite standout heritage feature is the circular porch and veranda, a nice place to sit if spring decides to arrive this year!
