Voltaire House

350 Fernhill Road in Ottawa is located in the most illustrious neighbourhood of the city, Rockcliffe Park. The features of the neighbourhood include luscious greenery, two lakes, and views over the Ottawa River. 350 Fernhill is a very large bungalow (5,000 square feet) on two levels. It was built in the 1950s by a prominent person as a new home after she gave her 34-room mansion in the same neighbourhood to the Dutch royal family in WWII so that they could live safely. In return, the Dutch send a million tulips to Ottawa each year in gratitude. 350 Fernhill was purchased five years ago and completely redesigned and rebuilt. It is classically designed and contains many fine European antiques. It features, among other things, five bedrooms, four baths, a sunroom, a large party room, a modern kitchen with granite and Bosch appliances, a large entry room with 8 skylights and an 18-foot high ceiling. The house has been used for fashion shows, art shows, a harp concert, a cello and piano concert, private and political fundraisers, and a movie set. It has also been featured as part of the Ottawa IODE residence tours. There is ample free parking.
