Description

3075 West 39th Avenue was built in 1913 for A. D. Wilson, who lived in the house for at least thirty years after, and it was designed by James W. Keagy, who worked in Vancouver from 1910-1920. Keagy designed many residential and commercial buildings in Vancouver, including the Tudor Revival building for the Vancouver Rowing Club in 1911.

3075 West 39th Avenue demonstrates Early Vernacular features, seen in the first floor bay window, shingle siding, recessed balcony over the front entrance, and gable roof facing the street. The single window on the top floor evenly spaced between two windows on the floor below is also commonly seen in Early Vernacular houses.

Craftsman Style features can also be seen at 3075 W 39th Ave in the half timbering of the front gable, the upper floor sleeping porch, and square posts framing the lower porch. It sits right next to 3057 W 39th Ave, another Early Vernacular house on the heritage register.
