Rundles Morris House

7 Cobourg Street , Stratford, N5A3E4 Canada (Show map)


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. INTRODUCTION: 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. ACCOMMODATION: 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. Breakfast service is included, and daily housekeeping is provided. Room service is available from Rundles when the restaurant is open for business. The house does not have an elevator, and therefore is not suitable for anyone who cannot climb stairs.

Amazing event space.

Staying overnight, I then hosted an all-day event at Rundles Morris House, and it was absolutely perfect. The service and attention to details was outstanding. Location in downtown Stratford cannot be any better. This is a wonderful place to be.
