Coordinates: 43.651510 -79.455185
The important Canadian architect Eden Smith (1859-1949) designed this house in 1896 as his family residence. It was part of an artistic colony on Indian Road where Eden Smith planned residences for like-minded artists and supporters of the arts. The family lived here until 1906 when they moved to Wychwood Park. Inspired by the arts and crafts movement, the house was Eden Smith's prototype of the English cottage style, with its sweeping roof, off-centre gable and side entrance. During his long career, Eden Smith used variations of this design in residential neighbourhoods throughout Toronto.
