It has rounded cedar log siding that graduate from larger at the bottom to more slender at the top. Armadale’s most unusual features are its architectural and decorative details, including materials believed to have been salvaged from the former McMillan House in Winnipeg. It has a huge fireplace, chandelier, leaded windows, and oak flooring, and is in excellent condition with a high level of physical integrity.
