Another lovely Ron Thom House is on the market in search of one lucky owner. I got a chance to visit and it turned out to be one of my Thom favourites - definitely high up on that list. It is no wonder that it is the Boyd/McPhedron House that inspired young Paul Merrick to become an architect.
The house is modest but very well appointed - and much improved by the efforts of its current owner. The skylights she has had installed in many rooms of the house flood it with light, opening up dark and sheltered spaces fairly typical of Ron Thom's designs. The skylights combined with concrete block, clear hemlock siding, and a precast ornamental frieze in the manner of Frank Lloyd Wright make this house quite singular to me.
The house is now listed and there will be an open house this Sunday July 15th from 2pm to 5 pm.
Until then, here is a mother lode of my photos (if you wish to see these bigger click on any one photo to view them bigger and as a slideshow):
