The Hogarth House
Built in 1875 for Thomas Hogarth, a school principal, this house stayed in his family for over 85 years until a developer bought it in the ’60s, with plans to demolish it. Locals rescued it, and it was acquired by its current owner in 1974. The front of the house looks straight out of 19th-century Sussex: old wooden fence, English perennial garden, 100-year-old catalpa tree and two large porches. The Victorian farmhouse vibe isn’t limited to the exterior. There are cathedral ceilings in the bedrooms and a claw-foot bathtub in the washroom.
