Tower House

Stratford, Canada

2 - 6 Keys 2 Bedrooms 4 Guests 2 baths


Architects: Shim-Sutcliffe. (

The house is in the centre of a charming Victorian/Edwardian city, overlooking Lake Victoria and the Stratford parklands for the best view in town.

Tadao Ando was the inspiration for the architecture. The aesthetic is modernist through and through; and materials are poured-in-place concrete, steel, wood (mainly cedar and Douglas fir), cement board, and glass. Completion was in 2001.

The beautifully-appointed living room has a wood-burning fireplace; throughout the house are the finest examples of modernist furniture and lighting. In the master bedroom, you get the first light of the day; and the view from the living room offers the perfect sunsets.

There are two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, and there is a powder room on the main level. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed, which sleeps two. There is a large, semi-industrial kitchen; a dining room that seats up to nine, and a living room that comfortably seats eight.

At the back of the house there is a water-lily pond, and a small, romantic garden. The house is across the street from an extensive park system.

There is parking for two cars. Daily housekeeping is compulsory.

The house does not have an elevator, and therefore is not suitable for anyone who cannot climb stairs.

Stratford, Ontario is on a human scale, which makes it a walkers’ paradise. The House is in the centre of town, and everything is nearby.

Visitors to Stratford attend the Stratford Festival, North America’s largest classical repertory theatre. (

Unique Trip

My family and I had a wonderful time on this trip. The Tower House is a unique home in a unique spot in Canada, making for a very different trip. The owners also run a restaurant nearby and they were wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't recommend the home for a larger group but for the four of us it was perfect. Definitely a great place. ”
