Leaskdale Manse, Uxbridge  

The Leaskdale Manse is the former Ontario home of Lucy Maude Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables and other children's books. Montgomery wrote eleven of her 22 works here. The house was built in 1886 in the Gothic Revival style.

The 1½ storey yellow brick building, originally constructed as a Manse, continued in this capacity until recently, when it became a museum for the famed author as well as a private residence.

Spencer R. Higgins, Architect Incorporated prepared a comprehensive condition survey of the heavily deteriorated stuccoed brick exterior and architectural wood elements. We prepared recommendations for treatment and repair, and provided full architectural services for the restoration of the brickwork.

The project had a construction value of $107,000 and was completed in 2003.
