Notice of Intention to Designate Property of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of The Corporation of the City of London intends to designate as a property of cultural heritage value or interest the following property in accordance with the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990:
3303 Westdel Bourne
June 6, 2019
Last Date for Objection
July 8, 2019
3303 Westdel Bourne is located on the west side of Westdel Bourne, North of Deadman’s Road in London, Ontario. The property is significantly associated with the Ireland family, one of the earliest settlers to the Delaware Township area, and was farmed by the family for 141 years. The property includes a farmhouse built in 1877 in the Italiante style. It displays many of the elements commonly found on buildings in this style, including the most defining element of the style, paired brackets. The farmhouse also has narrow segmented arched windows, paired windows, hipped roof, wide overhanging eaves, and a projecting bay with gable and oculus window. The decorative details of the wrap-around verandah details display a high degree of craftsmanship when compared to other Italianate style farmhouses in the former Delaware Township.
The property also includes 3 barns and a shed. Barn 1 is a rare and representative example of the bank barn as it has a timber frame structure with mortise and tenon joints, a gable roof, concrete foundation, and has vertical “barn board” cladding. Barn 1 is rare because it retains its barn hill, which has both a root cellar and a walk way underneath the ball hill. Barns 2 and 3 are also a timber frame with a gable roof and vertical barn board siding. The beams in the barn are a mix of hand hewed and machine cut with a typical diagonal post and beam brace connection. The beams are connected to the post with mortise-and-tenon joints. The shed is a vernacular in form with timber framing and a corrugated metal roof. What is suspected to be a dog house is connected to the south façade.
The statement explaining the cultural heritage value or interest and a description of the heritage attributes of the property can be seen in or obtained from the Office of the City Clerk, Room 308, City Hall, 300 Dufferin Avenue, London, Ontario N6A 4L9 during normal office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday) or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Any person who objects to an intended designation must, within thirty days after the date of the first publication, serve on the City Clerk a notice of objection in writing, setting out the reason for the objection and all relevant facts. The Ontario Heritage Act provides that where a notice of objection has been served, the Council shall refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a hearing. DATED at London, Ontario on June 6, 2019. Catharine Saunders, City Clerk
