Heritage Value Statement
Built around 1920 for Jack Hayes, the residence is a superior example of the type of simple bungalow that proliferated in Nanaimo’s working-class neighbourhoods. The form is reduced to the essentials; a hipped roof caps a rectangular plan, relieved by an inset entry porch with square chamfered columns. Otherwise minimally embellished, the coloured art glass panels used in the upper window sash provide some relief from austerity.

The building’s corner location on the main thoroughfare of this neighbourhood makes it a prominent landmark in one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods.
