Built in 1873, in the then popular Italianate architectural style, “Legacy
House” is located at 135 Church Street in Stratford. This
is a prime residential area of Stratford and a short walking

The house was given a Heritage Designation in 1988 under the Ontario

the amenities up to date while preserving several original features
and the house's inherent charm. It includes elaborate wooden trims,
high ceilings, original crown mouldings in the grand living and
dining room as well as the entrance hallway and more.
The house interior décor has been recently changed to reflect
the host's love for the arts. The rooms are decorated based on
