Historical Edmonton Homes
The Lord Residence was designed, owned, and built by George Lord Architect and his wife Nancy Lord. It is located at 11748 University Avenue in the prestigious community of Windsor Park near the University of Alberta and was featured in the 1957 Canadian Homes & Garden magazine.
Designed by George Lord and inspired by the West Coast Regionalism Style, This south Edmonton home features a low horizontal profile with large expanses of glass to engage the house with the surrounding environment. The large windows bring light deep into the house with clerestory windows at the ends of a long sloping roof. Rustic cedar siding was commonly used by Rule Wynn and Rule for their residential type buildings. Lord was employed in this firm at the time and later became a partner under the new name Rule Wynn Forbes Lord. The Lord House color scheme is original, with brown stained wood siding and green trims, and was typical of the firm’s approach to their West Coast Style buildings, most of which have been altered over the years. This house plan is unique, with living areas on the upper floor and bedrooms on the lower level to take advantage of the spectacular view over the river valley.
In 2015, this historically significant Windsor Park home sold for $751,000 by one of our best Remax Realtors. For more information or to learn the value of your Windsor Park Edmonton homes, contact us at 780-910-5179.
