Description

Prior to a fire in 1995, three almost identical heritage houses were located on the site at 632-698 Hawks Avenue. The fire damaged the centre house and the most northerly house. This group of houses, originally completed in 1905, are good examples of the Edwardian Builder style that was prevalent in Vancouver during the first decade of the century. All three houses have similar detailing with bell cast roofs with a deep overhang; full width front porches; front entrances placed asymmetrically to one side; and narrow wood siding. The current addresses are 632, 638 and 644 Hawks Avenue.
