Description

This Tudor Revival house was designed by Maclure & Fox and built in 1912-13 as “Thorley Park” for mining engineer Philip Gilman. The house is named after later owners Mildred and Reginald Brock, who moved here with their three sons in 1922. They called the house “Brockholme”.

Reginald Brock, a geologist and adventurer, was Dean of Applied Science at the University of British Columbia. Later, the house was the RCMP Vancouver Sub-Division Headquarters.

Tudor Revival architectural features include gables, dormers, pseudo-timbered walls, and leaded windows. There is an Arts & Crafts interior with a lofty entrance hall and wood paneling.
