1831 - 1834

An excellent example of a country house in the British classical tradition, this handsomely proportioned limestone building is one of the earliest residences in the Ottawa area and a reminder of the estates which once lined Richmond Road. Built by William Thomson, a successful farmer and lumberman, it was subsequently occupied by the Cole and Rochester families. The main interior spaces and rare walled garden are also designated.
Designated Heritage Property 1995

Excellent exemple de la maison de campagne dans la tradition classique britannique, cet édifice aux proportions harmonieuses, construit en Pierre Calcaire, est l'une des plus anciennes résidences de la région d'Ottawa et rappelle les elégantes propriétés qui jalonnaient autrefois le chemin Richmond. Construite par William Thomson, agriculteur et exploitant forestier prospère, cette résidence a été habitée par la suite par les familles Cole et Rochester. Les principaux espaces intérieurs ainsi que le rare jardin enclos de murs sont également désignés.
