Victorian: reinventing the past Victorian style


New homes take from the best of a frilly, ornamental era MAGGIE CALLOWAY Queen Victoria reigned from 1819 to 1901 but the stamp she made on the middle class can still be felt today. The Victoria style of architecture runs the gamut from over-the-top embellishments such as turrets and gingerbread decoration on the exterior, to what we would today consider stifling interior decoration of heavy drapes and chesterfields. Every room was totally drowning in material to prevent the presumably delicate Victorians from being carried away by the sight of a table or chair leg. In Britain, and in certain cities on the East Coast of North America, row houses built in the Victorian style were constructed “Victorian to house the labourers flooding into the cities details to work in the factories. were very At the time, these important to houses, mostly made of my clients as stone and stretching for miles, were considered they loved suitable only for the the era.” working class. Those of you who are fans of the British soap opera Coronation Street will be familiar with this style. Times change and these row houses, taken over by young professionals and modernized internally, are valued for their traditional style and location, which is usually close to the centres of towns and cities. One of the attributes of the Victorian home, which is still highly valued today, is the evidence of very intricate stained-glass windows. British architect Sir John Soane introduced stained glass into domestic use with the idea of using the colour in the glass to catch the sun as it passed over the home. Along with the windows, light fixtures became extremely ornate and also frequentCONTINUED ON P.2

B.C. housing rebounding Market heading for record highs, according to report B.C.’s housing market is rebounding strongly and heading for record highs, according to a recent Central 1 Credit Union report. Propelled by low mortgage rates and economic recovery, the forecast predicts that housing sales and prices will set new records in 2010. “Low mortgage “The monthly rates are a powerful sales stimulus, sales price when combined will set a new and with an improving high before economy, housing markets take the end of off,” Central 1 chief this year, economist Helmut regaining the Pastrick says in a entire amount release. “The strong lost during market momentum the recession.” coming out of the recession will carry into 2010, driving unit sales and prices to new highs.” Following a 25 per cent sales plunge in 2008, housing sales will rise 10 per cent in 2009 and climb to 30 per cent higher in 2010, the report states. It also forecasts that the annual median price for a residential property in B.C. will increase to record-highs of $391,000 in 2010 and $415,000 in 2011 (for the entire province). “The monthly sales price will set a new high before the end of this year, regaining the entire amount lost during the recession,” states the release. Central 1 notes that the sales upturn is stronger in British Columbia’s metropolitan areas (Vancouver, Victoria) and less so in resource-dependent economies (Kootenays, northern B.C.).

ly used stained glass as a medium. The United States’ Louis Tiffany was the master of this technique, as his stunning work, which remains to this day, attests. Original Victorian homes incorporated a lot of dark, heavily varnished wood. Beautiful, heavily decorated ‘door furniture’ such as finger plates, hooks, hinges and handles, mostly in brass, looked fantastic against the British Oak. The Victorians, always with an eye to making a good impression, used their most heavily decorated door brasses on public rooms and used plain, utilitarian hardware on more private parts of the home such as bedrooms. We can’t talk about Victorian interiors without mentioning wallpaper. This was an era when ‘over-thetop’ wallpaper designs coupled with highly ornate drapery was the order of the day. William Morris, an architectural designer (1834-96), was a master of pattern design. To this day his wallpaper designs are reproduced and in high demand. Of course today’s more restrained taste uses these wallpapers much more sparingly to great effect. Metro Vancouver has some wonderful examples of Victorian design which survived the mid-20th century mindset of tearing down old and building new and, for the most part, uninteresting. The part of the Lower Mainland to really get the feel of the Victorian style is New Westminster.


When I did some research online, I was amazed at just how many heritage homes there are in New Westminster. Signing up for the annual parade of heritage homes in this municipality would be a great treat and a rare opportunity to get a glimpse of the interiors. Bill and Roberta Randall love New Westminster for the heritage style and for the feeling of neighbourhood and community. A few years ago, they bought an older home with the idea of carefully renovating and settling in for the long-term. After living in the home for a few years, they began to have problems with the drainage around the perimeter, which necessitated replacing the drain tile. This is not a story about the nightmare that ensued except to say the house was undermined to the point – and I can only imagine the horror at the news – the house had to be

torn down, as it was deemed unsafe. After taking a very deep breath Bill and Roberta decided, in spite of the preceding nightmare, they would start again and build a Victorian-style home which would fit perfectly in the neighbourhood they loved. Trust, as you can imagine, was a major issue when interviewing new contractors. But they knew who to trust when they met him. “As soon as we met Mike Merakian of Blue Ocean Construction at our original meeting we knew we were in very good hands,” Bill says. Merakian, along with architect Jonathan Ehling and with a lot of input from Bill and Roberta – who had very clear ideas about what they wanted – designed a beautiful home. CONTINUED ON P.4

New homes in a great neighbourhood

New home features traditional, Victorian design and detail CONTINUED FROM P.2

“I refer to this design as Contemporary Victorian,” Merakian says. “Victorian details were very important to my clients as they loved the era and they were very adamant that their new home should fit seamlessly into the neighbourhood.” Building a new home in the Victorian style still allowed some modernizations, he adds. “There are definite advantages to starting from scratch, as we can build in modern techniques such as a heat pump system along with an air-to-air high-efficiency furnace. “This creates a very comfortable home because this system gives both heat and air conditioning in an environmentally responsible manner,” Merakian says. The home has two floors plus a partial basement. The design has five bedrooms over the three floors. There are two bathrooms upstairs, including an ensuite to the master bedroom, which Roberta and Bill both enjoy.

“The ensuite bathroom is fantastic with a huge shower and soaker tub. The whole master suite takes up one half of the third floor and works perfectly for us, another advantage of building new,” says Bill. Even with the inclusion of modern conveniences such as an open-plan great room and kitchen, there is a big nod to traditional Victorian decoration. Detailed millwork, crown mouldings and stained glass are smoothly inserted into the design. And the Randalls love it. “We are thrilled with the stained-glass windows, which we commissioned from artist Casey Brown. The big stained-glass window on the stair landing is fantastic and throws colour into the space,” Bill says. So how do you know when the long journey of designing and building a new home has been major success? In separate conversations with the designer/builder and the homeowner, each spoke very highly of each other, which in my book is a tribute to them both. Perhaps Bill sums it up best. “We’re home,” he says.

Front-door lights start to come to life along the street as the neighbourhood slips into dusk. Some street hockey players put a last burst of energy into their game, before the dark takes the night completely. Another group of kids continues to play their nightly ritual of kick-the-can, but are interrupted by a friendly family dog that has escaped the confines of the yard. Two neighbours, both fathers, chat over the fence about the best way to rebuild an old car’s engine. A neighbourhood is much more than just houses.

Cressey’s Summerfield homes in South Surrey feature spacious master bedrooms, ensuites and closets (above and left). Open-plan great rooms still allow a separate dining area (below left) and a den (below right). Kitchens have granite islands, and all homes are constructed to Built Green Silver standards, which means they are more energy-efficient and sustainable.

a soon-to-be-built elementary school that is within walking distance of every Summerfield home. A local builder with 40 years of experience, Cressey is selling Summerfield homes in phases, with another release of more new homes expected in about two weeks. Houses start at $525,000, which Cressey development manager David Evans notes is a fair price. “To get a three-bedroom detached home for that price in this location is still very reasonable,� Evans says. “There’s been a lot of interest. We’re selling about 12 homes a month.� Homebuyers are moving to Summerfield from South Vancouver, Richmond and other South Surrey locations, he adds. “I think (homebuyers) recognize the continuity of the community, and the quality they get from an established, long-time builder,� Evans says. Plus, there’s the location. Everything you need can “It’s a be found within a short drive central from Summerfield, from the location, shops and big-box stores at Grandview Corners to the yet boutique clothing stores, removed.� bistros, restaurants and coffee shops throughout White Rock and South Surrey. White Rock Beach and Crescent Beach are also nearby, as are doctors, dentists, drycleaners and grocery stores. Athletic parks, pools, ice rinks and dance centres are all close to home at Summerfield. “It’s a central location, yet removed – you’ve got White Rock Beach and Highway 99 and the (U.S.) border all near by, but you feel removed from the usual urban environment,� Evans says. “People seem to like the tranquility of the area.� Built in a unique Craftsman architectural style, Summerfield homes feature nine-foot ceilings on the main level and dramatic, vaulted ceilings on upper levels. Built-in entertainment niches complement the gas fireplaces, while custom wood, window and door trim and 4.5-inch-baseboards are made with recycled wood products. Kitchens cater to foodies and come with durable laminate counters and double-edged, granite islands. Large ensuites can come with a separate tub and shower, and all homes come with fully fenced backyards and detached, two-car garages. At Summerfield, homes have achieved a Silver Level Built Green status, because the houses operate with optimum air ventilation heating systems powered by natural gas, forced-air heating systems and more. Each Summerfield home comes with its own Energuide label and an efficiency rating of 73 or higher, which means it is 30 to 40 per cent more efficient than most homes built before 1995 – and upwards of 80 per cent more efficient than a character house built more than 50 years ago. Homebuyers who are passionate about sustainability can upgrade their new home to Built Green Gold status, and a Built Green homeowner manual will be provided to all homeowners as well. New homebuyers are interested in energy efficiency more these days, Evans adds, but more so, in having a highquality dwelling in a neighbourhood that they feel proud to call ‘home.’ Some homeowners have already moved in at Summerfield, and so far, “Everyone’s very excited. The response we’ve received is tremendous.� Visit for details.

HST answers TRICIA LESLIE The fight against the HST is still going strong at the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association. Ever since the provincial government announed its plans to combine federal and provincial sales taxes in July, the GVHBA has been working to find out what the Harmonized Sales Tax will mean for homebuyers. The proposed plan will give a five per cent rebate of the provincial portion of the single tax, but only up to a maximum of $20,000. People who purchase homes more than $400,000 will still receive the maximum $20,000 rebate, but will see the price above that level subject to the extra tax rate. Industry representatives have met several times with provincial government officials, but “to date, the government has not responded to industry’s recommendations to mitigate the effects the HST will have on new housing and renovations,” states a GVHBA update. The update notes that Canadian Home Builders’ Association president and GVHBA member Gary Friend wrote to the Canadian Minister of National Revenue about the underground cash economy and the

need to put forward a timely plan to deal with the situation. Others, like former premier Bill Vander Zalm, are fighting back with a plan to get 10 per cent of registered voters in every B.C. constituency to sign petitions asking for a referendum – a vote – on whether British Columbians want the HST or not. According to B.C. legislation, if 10 per cent or more sign that petition, the government must then hold a referendum. But Gordon Campbell, speaking on a radio morning show earlier this month, said the HST is happening whether British Columbians want it or not. “We have every intention of bringing it in,” Campbell said. “It’s easy to try to be popular. It’s much more difficult to make tough decisions.” During the show, Campbell said the HST “is the single most important measure we can make, to make our major industries competitive and to make our small businesses more competitive.” He admitted the tax will mean the average taxpayer “may pay a little more, but in the long term, ask yourself: Would you rather be at work? Would you rather have a strong economy, a thriving economy?”

The GVHBA continues to communicate its many concerns about the HST, including the fact that government officials “are attempting to apply HST rules that were made for Ontario, to B.C.” Industry has made it “blatantly obvious” that B.C.’s situation is extremely different, with higher average house prices, land and construction costs; lower embedded PST rates; delayed building times due to the Olympics; and higher government-imposed costs on new housing. The GVHBA is also pushing for more clarification of transitional rules, and wants government to grandparent all contracts signed prior to July 1, 2010, all projects constructed prior to July 1, 2010; and to extend the July 1, 2010 date to Dec. 31, 2010. The GVHBA is advocating for higher thresholds and rebates, and to eliminate the Property Transfer Tax. Where renovations are concerned, the housing industry wants to see a rebate formula for the provincial portion of the HST and to ensure that rebate goes directly to the consumer. They also want the HST rebate extended to energy-efficient products. In the meantime, the GVHBA and other industry representatives will “continue to petition government for fair treatment of new housing and renovations, and we encourage members to contact government officials (including your local MLA) to explain how your consumers and business will be affected.”
