"Heritage Harding House in Kelowna, BC"
The Harding House was built in 1929. This charming house is an example of the work of prominent local developer and contractor, Hector Maranda (1879-1967), who was responsible for several similar houses in the area. Additionally, the Harding House is significant for its associations with its original owner Percival Francis Harding (1881-1965), who was born in London and came to Kelowna in 1912.
The heritage value of the Harding House is associated with its modest, picturesque, cottage style architecture. The popularity of traditional period revival styles during the interwar years illustrates the reluctance to relinquish historical references in domestic architecture. Homeowners of the period understood and found comfort in traditional, historically referenced architecture, yet appreciated the domestic comforts of the modern home.
