Long known as “The Old Place”, the Sir Frederick Borden house was designed in 1902 by the renowned architect William Critchlow Harris. Consisting of over 6,000 sq. ft. on a gently sloping riverside site of 13 acres, Harris’s design is in the North American Shingle style, derivative of the British Arts and Crafts movement, its overall form derived from the late 19th-century Queen Anne Revival. A trend setting architectural style in its day, displaying an unembellished simplicity, with strong references to nature, and placing natural materials in the forefront of its design, this turreted, asymmetrical, sprawling mansion’s history is quintessentially Canadian. Sir Frederick Borden was a rural doctor in Canning, member of parliament and Canadian Minister of Militia under Prime Minister Sir Wilfred Laurier, and first cousin to Canadian Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden.

Quietly waiting in our National Historic District of Old Bennington is a true Grand Dame of Shingle Cottage Architecture . This venerable c.1905 Lady has lost none of her grandeur and has stood patiently waiting to be saved and cherished. The Shingle style is an American style of architecture. English influence was combined with the renewed interest in Colonial American architecture which followed the 1876 celebration of the Centennial and numerous estates throughout New England were created in this style. The previous owner honored the original house by retaining both the original exterior and interior appointments and design. Built in 1905 by the owners of the Holden-Leonard Woolen Mills, its elegance and refinement are displayed on every one of its 3 levels and no expectation will be disappointed. Overgrown gardens still hint at their beauty and were designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman, nationally known landscape architect. An L shaped stable borders the rear of the property. The home has retained all of its remarkable features which only need restorative care but the infrastructure, albeit with a brand new roof added this past year, will be one of daunting reconstruction from top to bottom. Not for the faint of heart or limited budget. This will be a once in a lifetime project for the serious Preservationist. Historical information and actual statistics immediately available.
