Firm: Jack Long

Address: 241 Eagle Ridge Drive SW

Date of final plans: 1961

Status: standing as built

The Keith F. Huff House was one of two residential masterpieces in Eagle Ridge designed by Jack Long, the other being the Clinton W. Roenisch House. The footprint of the Huff house is a U shape that opens to the street at the north with an entrance courtyard. The grade descents to the rear and the basement walks out to the backyard.

Around 1968, Roy Oliver Lindseth (1925–2018) purchased the house. The article you can see below says incorrectly that the Lindseths purchased the house in 1962. In 1997 the house received an extensive profile in the Herald. Roy's architect son Richard said his inspiration to enter the profession came from Jack Long's design of the house.

From the street, the house looks almost entirely original.



Keith Frederick Huff (1919–1999) was born in Edmonton on 3 December 1919. In 1943 he graduated Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta. In 1947 he and his wife settled in Calgary where he worked as a geologist for Imperial Oil. In 1967 the Huffs moved to Houston. The later lived in Connecticut, Bermuda, and Colorado. For a time, Huff was the manager of Exxon's exploration division, and at other times he appeared to have been a private consultant.

In June 1946, Huff married Bernice Helen Bricker (1921–2019) at Windermere United Church in Toronto. The couple had met in South America while he was working as a geologist and she as a bilingual secretary. The Huffs had five children: Brian, Ronald, Wayne, David, and Helen. He died on 30 May 1999 at age 79.
