History

Designed by local architect J. Robert Hillier, FAIA and called "The Urban Insertion", this contemporary house completed in 2007 won several design awards. An earlier house on the property was constructed c. 1850; it appears on historic atlases beginning in 1852. The house was converted into a twin in the very early 20th century, then was demolished c. 2006 for the current house.
