27 Elgin Street

Small, two-storey, duplex house with second-floor mansard roof (c. 1990).


Description: Symmetrical, flat-roofed new house is set so close to grade and tightly squeezed between neighbours, seeming, therefore, to be a renovated older house. Centrally placed fenestration comprises row of four large casements at ground and upper floor levels, the latter recessed into mansard roof and set behind Swiss-style balustrade. Entrance doors are located at either side, and are wooden doors with four, peaked, upper panes (all well-hidden behind aluminum-framed storm-doors). Second-floor wall surface is just visible adjacent mansard roof, which is shingled with rustic, light-brown, asphalt shingles.
