Designation Authority: Brandon (City)
Present Owner: privately owned

Maley House is a well-executed and, in Brandon, rare example of a grand Tudor Revival-style house. Designed by W.H. Shillinglaw, the structure features half timbers, crisply defined dark and light patterns, gable ends that rise above mature trees and exquisite interior woodwork. Its construction helped set the standard for substantial dwellings and quality craftsmanship in a setting where the wide lanes and generous boulevard of Victoria Avenue attracted large homes occupied by the business elite. Built for Henry Fitzgibbon Maley, founder of the Brandon Brewing and Bottling Co., the house is also known locally for its long association with the family of Dr. Henry MacDiarmid, a prominent Brandon physician.
