Description

This house was built in 1899 by Alex Bethune, who also built 1159, 1163, 1169 Pendrell at the same time. The first resident was Adonira Judson Paterson, a clerk with the CPR, and later George H. Haskins, of Haskins and Eliot; William G. Chittenden, a CPR telegraph operator; John H. Fox, veterinary surgeon. In the 1940s, front and rear sections were added on, most likely for a rooming house. The original house remained intact in the middle.

This house is painted in VHF True Colours: Body – Pendrell Verdigris, Trim – Pendrell Green, Sash – Hastings Red, Gable – Pendrell Red, Deck and stairs – Edwardian Porch Grey. It received a Restore It Grant in 2003 for the restoration of lost Victorian detailing.
