Robert Findlay, architect, 1891
« A director of the Sun Life Company, Thomas B. Macauley, called upon architect Findlay to build both the company's head office in Old Montrealand this Queen Anne style house with its complex volumes. » –

« After architect Robert Findlay won the design competition for the Headquarters of the Sun Life Assurance Company at 266 Notre Dame Street West in 1887, Thomas Bassett Macaulay requested the architect to design a home for him. This Queen Anne style mansion was built on the southwest corner of Dorchester at Clandeboye in 1891. This was the first Westmount commission for Robert Findlay. The house, which still stands today, is asymmetrical, constructed of red brick with an eccentric slate roof. The entrance features heavy masonry typical of the work of architect H.H. Richardson. This design shares many architectural features with the Westmount Public Library designed by Findlay in 1898. Thomas Macaulay never lived in this house but arranged for it to be rented and then sold to the Edgar family. » –

« Construite en 1891 pour le directeur de la Sun Life Thomas Bassett Macaulay selon les plans de l'architecte Robert Findlay, cette résidence bourgeoise est des plus impressionnantes en raison de la complexité de ses volumes et de ses jeux de toiture. D'inspiration Queen Anne, elle en revêt plusieurs éléments typiques bien agencés; sa tourelle d'angle coiffée d'un toit polygonal, sa lucarne pignon, ses lucarnes à croupe débordante et ses matériaux contrastants (brique rouge et ardoise). » –
