Designed by architect W.S. Maxwell for Senator Arthur Hill Gillmor over a hundred years ago, it is now transformed into a lovely boutique. Gillmor’s Coach House retains it’s historical integrity with the beautifully lathed pillars that once separated the stalls for horses and cows. The walls and ceiling are covered in tongue and groove spruce, and the old floor boards have been sanded and varnished to the original rich gold patina.
Even the “miss-spelling” of Gillmor has it’s roots in family history and goes back to the first “Gilmore” from Ireland who, for reasons unclear, changed the name from the original spelling.
Filled with special finds and fashion, it is rare to have such a completely unique shopping experience anywhere.
