Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

The number of the houses on the street can be identified as having distinct features of Edwardian Classicism with simple, balanced (if not symmetrical) designs, and many windows. This practical house type, often constructed of brick, displays robust but simple wood detailing. These homes present a degree of formality in contrast to the more causal bungalow styles on the street, but relate well through modest 2.5 storey massing, shared setbacks and rustic detailing.

Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

Bungalow refers to a style of house popularized in the United States before WWI and consists of low cottage-like houses of 1 to 1.5 storeys. A good number of the homes along this portion of Kingswood Road exhibit low-pitched roofs, wide verandas and varied building materials that are characteristic of Toronto versions of this style. This design’s modest proportions and rustic textures are common in the area and relate strongly to the Beach’s seasonal past.

Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

Constructed around 1930, the later homes built on Kingswood Road show neo-classical details. Their symmetrically balanced windows and centre-hall plans, simplified cornices and accentuated front doors, draw inspiration from New England and arts & craft styles.

Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

Several homes along Kingswood Road south of Bracken exhibit asymmetrical gables, shed roof dormers, irregular and multi-paned windows, and textured materials. Often, more generally classified as Period Revival, the characteristics of these homes contribute to a picturesque sensibility reminiscent of English cottage designs.
