50 St. Paul Street

One-storey, symmetrical, hip-roofed, framed cottage (clad in Insulbrick), with pre-1900 bay window at south side, and with later addition at former verandah across front (c. 1880).


Description – Pavilion-like cottage has foundation faced with cast stone, assumed by position relative to wall above to be in front of older, stone foundation. Clapboard addition across front was formerly a verandah, as may be seen by break in cladding at approximately two-feet above internal floor level. Present enclosure effectively obscures older structure behind, having (at both sides) outer, 1/1, metal-framed windows, with pair of (more recent) casements between. Recessed, front, slab-type door is largely glazed, placed between tall sidelights having unusual ribbed-glass. Bulk of original front wall within is assumed to be removed. Wall surfaces are clad in Insulbrick, presumably over painted render /rough-cast. At south elevation, bay window has crude, concrete-block below and elegant, 2/2, segmental-headed windows above (behind aluminum storms). Corners are marked by wooden colonettes (without bases), which rise to small, scrolled brackets at eaves. Soffit boards and fascias are plain. Roof is clad in black asphalt shingles, with galvanized ridge-rolls at hips and peak.
