Baldwin House available for Olympics
The Arthur Erickson-designed Baldwin House in Burnaby is still up for grabs for rental during the Winter Olympics.
The city-owned house, on the shores of Deer Lake, is managed by The Land Conservancy of B.C.
It is renting out the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, which accommodates six, for $750 per night during the Games, Feb. 12 to 28.
Completed in 1965, Erickson designed it for friends, Dr. William and Ruth Baldwin, who commissioned the work. The west-coast modernist home blurs the line between inside and outside with ceiling-to-floor windows and an open floor plan.
The design was inspired by the palaces and houseboats of India’s Dal Lake in Kashmir and gives the impression of floating on Deer Lake.
TLC will be hosting a holiday open house on Friday, Dec. 11 at Eagles Estate Heritage Garden, 5655 Sperling Ave., from 4 to 7 p.m.
The public will have the opportunity to tour Baldwin House, just up the hill. More info: 604-733-2313.
