The exterior of 23 Yates Street is that of a modest mock Tudor, albeit highly detailed, that belies the actual dimensions of the home. This was a home constructed and designed by confident professionals in 1921 whose principles are recorded in the chosen stained glass Latin mottos Confido Vigilio (I am confident) and Droit Tuebor (I defend my rights). The interior of the structure is all that one would expect from a Tudor design of the Arts and Crafts period. It was well constructed by skilled craftsman who incorporated many fine details in a space that flows evenly from room to room. The living areas are designed in an intriguing and surprising layout and remain eminently practical due to the skill of a gifted architect. It remains to this day a house that a family can live in, entertain in, and be proud of all at the same time. It is truly a domestic gem that throughout the 40 year stewardship of the present owners has been restored, replaced and modernized with a mandate of seamless inclusion of quality, uniqueness and detail that a home of this character deserves. It is a “confident” house in a multitude of ways and provides the purchaser with the opportunity of owning a remarkable individual property.
