Edgehill House Update

Over the last year Edgehill House (61 Edgehill Rd-at the top of James Garden) has under gone a face lift. Scaffolding was up for many months on the front and right side of the house while windows were replaced and other general maintenance was performed. In March, the scaffolding came down. The new windows are really enhancing the appearance of this historic house and recreation property.

Some further landscaping improvements have also been made. The telco wire hanging in the front of the property has been removed. The cement filled stump that remained to the front right of the house has been cut down to ground level. A procedure that took a few hours. Hopefully the last few inches will be incorporated into the gardens or eventually removed.

We will continue to monitor drainage issues this spring.
