September 16, 2014 -
Notice of Intention to Pass a By-Law to Designate 484 Days Rd., also known as the Peter Day House, to be of Cultural Heritage Value and Interest Pursuant to the Provisions of the Ontario Heritage Act (R.S.O. 1990, Chapter 0.18)
Take Notice that the Council of The Corporation of the City of Kingston intends to pass a by-law under Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter 0.18, to designate the lands at 484 Days Road, (Part of Lot 9, Concession 1 as in FR611599, City of Kingston, County of Frontenac) also known as the Peter Day House, to be of cultural heritage value and interest.
484 Days Road, known as the Peter Day House, (Part of Lot 9, Concession 1 as in FR611599, City of Kingston, County of Frontenac) is of cultural heritage value and interest because of the physical/design value of this impressive limestone house of excellent design and quality reflecting a lifestyle of growing prosperity. Its symmetrical 3 bay façade plan with central gable is representative of rural houses of the period, while the decorative window surrounds and hipped roof show Italianate stylistic influences. The stonework exhibits reined craftsmanship with some distinctive design features that suggest the work of an accomplished architect. In its rear wing, the house provides an example of an earlier small stone farmhouse.
The property has historical value through its association with the Day and the Wartman families, who both derived from early Loyalist settlers in the area and who were prominent landowners and citizens through many generations.
This property has important contextual value as a prominent surviving farmhouse in its original location on a generous rural residential lot with reminisce of its original drive.
Additional information, including a full description of the reasons for designation is available upon request from Ryan Leary, Senior Heritage Planner, Planning & Development Department at 613-546-4291, Ext. 3233, or at firstname.lastname@example.org during regular business hours.
Any notice of objection, setting out the reason for objection and all relevant facts, must be served upon the City Clerk within 30 days of the first publication of this notice.
Dated at the City of Kingston,
this 16th day of September, 2014
