John I. McEwan Residence

439 Marks Street South

First listed in 1914, this large two-and-a-half-storey house was first inhabited by John I. McEwan, the Assistant Fire Chief. The house was constructed with red brick veneer contrasting with the rusticated coursed Simpson Island stone foundation and cut-stone detailing. The bay windows on the facade and the sides of the house extend over both stories. Above each window of the house a thick cut-stone lintel can be found. Also of note are the Corinthian fluted columns supporting the porch. The covered porch on the second floor appears to be a modern addition.
