Two beautiful homes in Queen’s Park were voluntarily designated recently and we thank these owners for their contribution towards helping to preserve New Westminster’s built heritage. They have truly provided a gift to our community.
109 Third Avenue – G.R. Speck House built in 1911
This is the third home that owners, Kathleen and Eric, have masterfully restored. Their attention to detail and their skill in restorative work is amazing and demonstrates their love for preserving the life of a fabulous old house. They have also considered livability with a modern kitchen and updated bathrooms making this a turnkey location for the next owner. When these folks decide to put away the sandpaper and move on, they will be leaving a stunning example of heritage restoration for the next generation to enjoy.
125 Third Street – J.J. Johnston House built in 1905
A beautiful home that has been fully and wonderfully restored, inside and out. It has been consistently maintained so that it remains comfortable and functioning in all practical ways that are required in any house, old or new. This property epitomizes how a gracious old home can endure the test of time and be enjoyed for generations.
