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.

About the neighbourhood
Rundles Morris House is right in the centre of town, and everything is within easy walking distance. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, Stratford is one of the best small towns in Canada to retreat to. What makes it unique is that, although it is a quiet country town, it has culinary and theatrical offerings one would expect to find in only much larger places. Stratford is located less than two hours drive from Toronto, and three hours from both Detroit or Buffalo. Also, with international airports located all around us, one can easily fly to almost anywhere in the world.

Many people who visit Stratford also go to the Shaw Festival, located in Niagara-on-the-Lake; and, while they are there, they visit Niagara Falls and the Niagara wine area, which are close by.
