Long Description:
"Henry Hodge Horsey (1830-1911) was a prolific and well-connected architect active in the middle decades of the nineteenth century.

Horsey's 'Chapel Court' (1865) at Daly and Chapel was designed for George-Edouard Desbarats, the Queen's Printer. The Desbarats sold their house to Sanford Fleming, the inventor of uniform standard time zones, for $10,000. Fleming re-named it 'Winterholme' and although much altered by later additions, it's still there.

This stately limstone building was considered to be one of Sandy Hill's finest estates. It was once home to Sir Sandford Fleming. After the depature ot the Flemings, Winterholme was converted to aparments in the 1920s with the entrance moved to the south side of the edifice.

Some of the original detailing, like the marble fireplace, high ceilings and ornate trim can still be found intact inside the building."
