Comment: This is the same as the Burlington House plan (File 2) for DG personal residence (when DG appointed to DDE HMCS Restigouche computer team at Litton Industries, Ottawa.). Similar main plan but Garage re-oriented. Again, all West Coast materials shipped by train from BC to Ontario. The property was one acre, subdivided in a “dog-leg” from existing. View east, to Gatineau Hills.
