The Coo House

135 Archibald Street North
Constructed: 1898
Builder: George Coo

This very eclectic house contains several features usually found only on much larger buildings. The most eye catching of these features is the large tower with its conical roof, capped with a pointed finial. The tower is made of wood, but painted so as to blend into the brickwork as much as possible. A combination of other oddly placed windows and stone decorations contribute to the unbalanced appearance of the house as a whole. Built by George Coo in 1898, the house remained in the family until 1952. It has since been used as a dwelling by other families, and for commercial purposes.
