History/Biography
In 1959 Dr William (Bill) Baldwin and his wife Ruth bought a cottage and approximately two and a half acres of land on the shores of Deer Lake for $16,000. The cottage and land had been owned by one of Dr. Baldwin’s colleagues at Burnaby Hospital. The couple lived in the cottage with their two then-infant-aged children John and Susan for a few years before deciding to renovate and expand their home. Arthur Erickson was close friends with William Baldwin, having gone to Prince of Wales High School and McGill University together. Ruth decided that they needed a lakeshore home rather than a renovation on their cottage and Arthur Erickson would be the man to design it. Local builder Torstein Kravik completed the house in 1965. The home is considered an early example of Erickson’s design aesthetic, demonstrating his vision of "site, light and cadence." It is thought to be the best example of West Coast contemporary architecture in Burnaby. John Baldwin was eight years old and his sister Susan was seven when the family celebrated their second Thanksgiving in their new home in 1966. Dr. William Baldwin died in 1987. In 2001, at the age of seventy-eight, Ruth approached the City of Burnaby about buying the property,on the condition that the house be protected and that Ruth could continue to rent the home. The City purchased it and gave it Heritage designation. Ruth Baldwin died in 2009. Presently, the Baldwin home and garden is on lease to The Land Conservancy of B.C. (TLC) to serve as a “guest house.” It is now available for lease to local residents and visitors for overnight stays.
