The same family has lovingly cared for this jewel of Riverside since 1935.

Far back from a quiet stretch of Dufferin Avenue is an English-style house built in 1901 as headquarter for the Arlington Heights Fruit Company, owned by the Riverside Trust Company, Ltd. it is one of five structures built by contractor J.W. Carroll at Windsor Ranch. The company required a large workforce to care for the vast acreage it managed for absentee English owners. The main house was used as offices and as a residence for the manager, while other buildings housed workers & equipment. The main brick & wood building was built several feet off the ground to resemble an English Colonial-plantation house. Its composition-shingled roof extended over a veranda encircling the one-story portion of the house. Only one corner rose two floors high. Double front doors facing west, opened into a large central room. with a massive granite fireplace and a raised oval hearth. This long center room extended the width of the building. Along the side walls were rows of doors opening into small offices. Although this room had no windows, angled skylights, built high in the ceiling, allowed sunlight to stream into the middle of the house! Charles E. Maud was the first resident manager at Windsor Ranch and sometimes the house was called the Maud house. After Maud left Riverside in 1902, other managers improved the house and grounds.
