    Briarcliffe is Ottawa’s newest Heritage Conservation District, and the first in Canada to recognize mid-20th Century modern architecture. This enclave of 23 unique homes began in 1959 when partners sharing modernist ideals of living in harmony with nature purchased 20 acres of rocky, topographically challenging land near the Ottawa River. Progressive architects of the day designed experimental homes in keeping with design covenants established to ensure visual cohesion of the neighbourhood and preservation of its spectacular natural landscape.

    Steep roads; flat walking shoes recommended. Tour takes place rain or shine.

    GUIDE: Danielle Jones is an artist and designer, modernist architecture buff and Briarcliffe resident.

    Tour fee is $5 for Heritage Ottawa members and $10 for non-members.

    DIRECTIONS: Take Blair Road north to Massey Lane, Right on Massey Lane to Rebecca Crescent, Right on Rebecca Crescent to Combermere Lane, Left on Combermere Lane to Combermere Park.
