Description du lieu patrimonial

The Jones Residence is a one-and-one-half storey British Arts and Crafts bungalow, with Tudor Revival influences, located in the Shelbourne area of Saanich.

Valeur patrimoniale

The heritage value of the Jones Residence is associated with its development within its neighbourhood context. Shelbourne is bounded on the east and south by Oak Bay and Victoria, with Mount Tolmie as the major landmark on the east. The area was first developed as farms, which were gradually subdivided for residential and commercial use. The neighbourhood is also home to several large institutional complexes such as Camosun College and St. Michael's University School.

The Jones Residence is valued for its association with architect, Samuel Maclure (1860-1929), known as one of B.C.'s leading early architects. Maclure had a profound influence on the development of B.C. architecture, and was a leader in establishing a sophisticated local variation of the Arts and Crafts residential design.

This house is an excellent example of a British Arts and Crafts bungalow. The main floor walls, shed-roofed dormers and front porch balustrade are clad with cedar shingles with half-timbering.

Historically, the property is valued for its early residents, Maggie Sussannah and Charles Bentley Jones. Jones was a civil engineer and contractor, and partner in Jones and Rant. The company started as fence contractors and expanded the business to include construction of roads, water works, drainage and general construction, which helped in the development of Saanich as an urban centre.
