In honour of Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town being 100 years old (and presented on CBC television in a delightful adaptation) here is a summery sketch photo of  Mr Leacock’s summer home in Orillia, now a national historic site and museum. Stephen Leacock is acknowledged as Canada’s foremost humourist and essayist and every year there is a tribute literary award for humour in his honour.

  1. What a wonderful home! Where I live, that could be a hotel 🙂
    It’s an amazing piece of architecture, though, regardless of how many people dwell inside. I especially like that sharp rooftop, toward the front. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  2. A great mansion, I should call it! Beautiful ! Thanks for the visit. Yes such a bridge is slippery if covered by ice, but you have probably seen the strips of wood across the bridge. Well they should help to get over the bridge.
    Have a great week!

  3. This abode is lovely. I like the English motif that is shorn of the dark stone exterior,it may be big and maybe imposing – but the white exterior makes it feels light. I like how the home is perched upon that grassy terrace. A stunning home with a classic style!

  4. French doors are delightful! This home has an abundance of them–double delight.

  5. What a gorgeous home…I would love to see the interior!

  6. Great post!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  7. Seems like such a pretty house 🙂

  8. What a lovely porch with all those arches and pillars.

  9. I love the grids and arches. What a lovely house.
