Alderlea

Alderlea, meaning meadow of alder trees, is a well preserved heritage building, built at the height of the Victorian era. It is one of the finest examples of Italianate villa architecture in Ontario. The property also holds tremendous landmark status on an elevated terrace overlooking Gage Park. Following careful restoration for adaptive reuse, this 19th-century mansion has plenty to offer. Check out the video below and see how the house has been adapted for use as a heritage venue.
