What’s So Special About the Miyazaki House?
The architecture, craftsmanship, age, and history. The house was built in the Second Empire style with a mansard roof, you’ll notice it has a double-pitched roof with a steep lower slope. The roof is decorated with ornate pediment dormer windows. This architectural style was popular in the mid to late 1800s. Other than in Vancouver and Victoria, this building style is unusual and rare in rural British Columbia.
