Description

6450 Cedarhurst St was designed by architects Twizell and Twizell, and lived in by Robert Twizell, his wife Mabel, and their family until 1947. It sits on approximately half an acre of land and has five bedrooms. The house sits far back from the street, surrounded by mature trees.

English brothers Twizell and Twizell established their firm in 1908 in Vancouver and practiced for nearly 50 years. They are well known for designing many schools and churches in Vancouver, as well as some large residences in Shaughnessy in neo-georgian and arts and crafts styles. A few of their projects also on the Vancouver Heritage Register are Oblate House, Lord Kitchener Elementary, Kerrisdale School, David Lloyd George School and St Andrew’s Wesley United Church.
