Woodholme Manor

1384 Wonderland Rd. N.
London  ON
N6G 2C1

History:     Historic Woodholme Manor is located on an oversized 1.26 acre lot. The premiere attraction for Sifton's Woodholme Park development, Woodholme Manor, built in 1893 by Richard Shaw-Wood, sits high atop the former Lawson Estate grounds.
Constructed in late Victorian Gothic Revival style, Woodholme was the residence of two prominent London families: the
Richard Shaw-Wood family; and later Colonel Tom
Lawson and his wife, Miggsie. This estate, at 1384
Wonderland Rd. N., was in its time one of the few
concrete-poured homes in North America.
Architecturally significant due to its many unique features and attributes, including its concrete construction, castle architectural dominance, impressive vaulted stairway accessing its three levels. Immense ballroom leading to a uniquely crafted fireplace and French doors leading to its oversized spacious grounds.
 
Details:     This house has been purchased and the new owners are looking to restore it.
