184 Balsam Drive, Oakville, Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings, 1972


Parks Canada recorded that the house was called "Sunnybank", owned by Ms. Lunau and built in 1850. In the mid-1970's, there are a number of classified ads for the Halton TB & RD Association in area newspapers (found in Halton Images) giving this address for contacting the Association for Christmas seals. The property was heavily treed and no clear photograph of the house was taken. The photographs are dark and so lightened for show in this record by the TTHS. The house is on the Town of Oakville Register of Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest (Not Designated) where it is described as c1860 Italianate style stucco. Balsam Drive was previously named Central Avenue. A report by Laurie Smith Heritage Consulting, Balsam Drive Streetscape is linked here for your information. Starting on page 8, is the history of the land settlement and information on the heritage houses on the street. Only 3 of which Parks Canada included in this project.
