231 Church Street

This refined Gothic Revival house was built in 1876 by local builder Charles Moffatt for Christ Church Cathedral as a residence for the assistant clergyman. The exterior boasts lovely bargeboards and a pendant at the roof apex, which was originally topped by a finial in the shape of a cross, denoting the house’s connection to the Church. The cross was removed in the 1940’s. The wonderfully proportioned off-center entry porch is enhanced by carved spandrels that combine to create a delicate modified gothic arch over the front entrance.
