ItemSt. Andrews Beacon, May 21, 1908
Beautiful Summer Home
Mr. Smith, of Montreal, is the Owner
There are few summer dwellings anywhere more beautiful, or more complete, and certainly none more favorably situated than the handsome abode that Mr. C. F. Smith, of Montreal, has just completed on the crest of the ill overlooking the own of St. Andrews and the beautiful Passamaquoddy bay. It is a wooden building with an ample porte cochere in the front and broad verandahs stretching around the greater part of it. On the main floor is a large hallway, 15 x 22 feet. The chief living room, 32 x 17 feet, is located on the southern side, opening out on the verandah. It is supplied with a large fire place. The dining room, 16 x 22 feet, is located on the eastern side, and through tits glass doors and windows may be seen Minister's Island and the bay beyond. A brick fire-lace fills one end of the dining room. Adjoining the dining room, on the south east corner, is the "den," an octagonal room, finished up in old pine, with a comfortable looking fire-place. On the left of the main entrance there is a bedroom 12 x 15 feet also a bathroom and coat room. In the rear are the kitchen, larder and servants' hall, also the children's dining room. On the second floor there are six large bedrooms having beautiful outlooks, also three bathrooms and a water closet. In the servants' quarters there are four comfortable sleeping rooms with a bathroom attached. The workmanship about the building is first-class in every respect, and cannot be surpassed anywhere. Much credit attaches to the carpenter, Mr. Wright McLaren, who has carried out the ideas of the architects to the smallest detail with a skill and accuracy most remarkable. The mason-work was performed by Mr. Charles Horsnell, the plumbing by Mr. Goodwill Douglass, and the painting and paper hanging by Mr. Albert Shaw. The grading about the residence is being performed very tastefully by Mr. William McQuoid.
