Featured Home Swap Property #0428: Canada, Ontario, Stratford

"Modern, Luxurious, Fully-serviced Two-bedroom Suite Downtown

What does Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England, have in common with Stratford, Ontario, Canada? – William Shakespeare, of course.  He was born in the former and his dramatic legacy comes alive in the latter at the annual Stratford Festival, formerly known as the Shakespeare Festival. Running from April to October, the Festival is North America’s largest repertory theatre, with dazzling productions of  the works of Shakespeare and other great play writers.     

The Bard would approve of Stratford, Ontario. It is a quiet small town  set in the pastoral beauty of the Ontario countryside some 93 driving miles west of Toronto.  Visitors are immediately struck by the impressively preserved 19th Century homes and buildings, and by the city’s lovely parks with their lakes and gardens. The Shakespearean Theatre and the Tom Patterson Theatre are located within the formal park system.  A third theatre, The Avon, is located downtown.  

The downtown area offers smart clothing shops, fabulous antique stores, and funky boutiques.  And a few hip clubs for a lively night out. But next to the theatre, Stratford’s biggest draw is it’s array of restaurants and bistros with creative menus from casual to gourmet. Stratford as a food destination ranks as one of the best in Canada.

Stratford is home to one of Canada’s most prestigious culinary schools. Teaching locations include some of the city’s fine-dining establishments, providing students with real restaurant-world experience.   One of these is Rundles Restaurant, a standout in the Stratford culinary scene since 1977. The owner is also the co-founder of the Stratford Chef’s School. And he is also the owner of your vacation-home-exchange property, the Morris House, immediately adjacent to Rundles.

This vacation exchange home, The Morris House, is a fully-serviced, deluxe two-bedroom suite with a soaring three-level atrium. It sleeps five and has two-and-a-half baths. The spacious living room presents views of the Avon River and the lush greenery of a surrounding park. The kitchen is worthy of a professional chef. The owner worked with Toronto architects Shim-Sutcliffe to design the home in concrete, cedar and Douglas fir. The stunning result earned it a featured place in the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture.  

A private chef assigned to the property prepares a healthy, seasonal breakfast each morning. The Rundles Lunch or Dinner Menu may be served in the house during restaurant hours. Housekeeping is included. For five extra credits, a 1998 BMW 328i will be available for your use during your stay. Chauffer service to and from the Toronto airport (YYZ)  is provided for up to four guests staying seven days or more.

For more information on this luxurious house, and pictures to show the full story, click on the property # above.
