In 1924, the owner of Rankin Ice Cream Parlour, Gordon Rankin, commissioned an architect from Toronto, stonemasons from Scotland and limestone from Indiana for his Tudor Revival house. This home is rare example of the Jacobean style in Stratford with steeply pitched roof and small paned windows. The symmetrical double gables are also very distinctive. We especially love the beautiful patina of the copper awnings and the stonework detail around the entry door.
