Mackie Lake House Foundation
Montreal architect Robert Findlay was commissioned by Ronald Buchanan to design the house in 1910. Tendered by local firm Bell & Constant and built by local contractor T.E. Crowell, the house was considered one of the finest private homes in the Okanagan.
1910 Buchanan House

The house was designed in high-style Arts and Crafts architecture with a unique eastern Canadian influence. The exterior is clad with stucco and board-and-batten siding, with distinctive bellcast roof edges supported on scroll cut brackets. The four tall chimneys and the high chateau roof give the house a commanding presence.

Mackie Lake House is beautifully preserved both inside and outside, and retains virtually all of its original building fabric. There are numerous multipaned double-hung wooden-sash windows and several decorative stained glass panels. Interior features include extensive use of fir paneling. Fireplaces are inset with arts and crafts tiles.
