Welcome to Fernside Cottage, an exquisite residence set on spectacular, serene setting featuring incredible sun filled architectural designs and superior, timeless materials throughout.

He converted the structure into a home for himself in 1910 and it remained his residence until 1964 when John Dorrance bought the property along with many additional properties to create the Dorrance Estate. Fernside Cottage remained part of his Dolebrand estate until 1992, when it was sold as part of his estate. It was purchased by the current owners in 1992 and went through major renovations between 1993 ? 1995, when a 3 car garage and spacious 2 bedroom guest cottage were added. The original renovation as well as the more recent additions carefully designed and constructed in 2007, incorporate exceptionally fine architectural features by renowned architect Daniel Evans White from Vancouver, British Colombia.
