Emerson Manor is an elegant 1926 home located
in central Oshawa. Oshawa is a cosmopolitan city with a metropolitan
population of 332,000 people. In 1997 the house was slated for demolition.
At that point, long time Oshawa resident Robert Lutczyk
purchased the house and moved it six city blocks to its new
location. Most of 1998 was spent restoring and renovating.
Today, there are three bedrooms available to the traveler to choose
from, all with the privacy of their own bathroom, and comfort
of central air conditioning. The rooms are all decorated differently,
but for the most part, reflect a Victorian motif, which includes
hardwood floors, antique furniture, and Italian ceramic tile.
Emerson Manor is a five minute walk from the Oshawa
Shopping Centre, the area's major shopping mall, with over 350
stores and services. Just around the corner you will also find
restaurants that range from fast food to fine dining. In the
valley behind Emerson Manor you can stroll along a path that
circles a pond teeming with wildlife. Quite often one can spot
the elusive Great Horned Owl and Sharp-Shined Hawk, as well
as the more common Cardinal, Blue Jay and Canada Goose.
