Additional information related to the Ewart House:

"In his book Ottawa: City of the Big Ears, Haig writes, "The beautiful Gothic detail of the Centre Block induces much pride in the new Dominion". Sandy Hill was no exception to this and its citizens demonstrated their pride by emulating the Gothic style of the Parliament Buildings in their community. Two houses within a block of each other were both built in a Victorian Gothic design. David Ewart's house on 464 Besserer and the Patterson House on 336 Daly are two examples of the effect of the Gothic Parliament Buildings on Sandy Hill. Ewart's house has "trefoil-arched dormers"(Fletcher 185) with inset gothic window frames.
