Who We Are

Built in 1890 for newlyweds Clifford and Henrie Shand, this ornate, Queen Anne-style house was once considered a modern marvel in Windsor.

Featuring a fancy, original indoor bathroom, central heating, and stylish furniture from the Windsor furniture factory, the house stands as a testament to the Shand family legacy.

Admire the front hall's gleaming cherry-wood paneling. See a display of Clifford's memorabilia from the early days of the sport of bicycling. Take the servant’s stairs to the upper floor and climb the tower for a magnificent view of the Avon River and countryside; a beautiful setting for this comfortable family home.
