Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

English Cottage Style descended from the 16th Century cottages and manor houses of England and reincarnated by renowned English architects of the turn of the century, Voysey, Lutyens and, slightly before them, Shaw. Their styles were copied and distilled throughout the suburbs of North America.

Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

The pure style is represented by mannered and geometrized classical mouldings, with keystones and other details rendered in contrasting stone. The distilled residential style is somewhat square and simple with some classical elements like classicized posts as porch support.

Excerpt from www1.toronto.ca:

Bungalow refers to a style of house popularized in the United States before WW1 and consists of low cottage-like houses exhibiting exposed carpentry, hence the often-applied qualifier "Craftsmen Bungalow". Another feature is exposed structural framing. Purlins, rafters, plates, braces and posts are highly visible in gable ends, under eaves as well as supporting members for the extensive porches and verandas. Building material varies, but most favoured was the combining of rustic textures, such as stone or brick with a siding such as horizontal board or shingle.
