790 Brunswick Street

The dark, mostly monochrome paint finish of this captivating three-storey Second Empire house makes it difficult to readily appreciate its palette of rich detailing; particularly the subtly projecting bays of the Church Street façade with their panelized design and pilasters, the deep banding below the mansard roof cornice, and the balustrade on the south-facing sunporch. More distinct features include Brunswick Street’s 45° bay window towers capped by a trio of sharp dormers, cream coloured rosette and diamond "chains," and the spacious curved window bay. This extensive home was built sometime after 1874 for businessman A. Fitzrandolph as a single-family residence.
