Firm: J. A. Cawston

Address: 710 Earl Grey Crescent SW

Date of final plans: May 1958

Status: standing as built

Robert A. Quinton's house on Earl Grey Crescent sits on a 122' by 74' lot that sits atop a hill overlooking the Glencoe Club. The house is a simple L-shaped bungalow with large picture windows. At the rear there is a large concrete porch built into the inside of the L.

I hate to say it, but because of the desirability of the lot, I suspect after the next sale it will be demolished.



Robert Alfred Quinton (1901-1995) was born on 29 December 1901 in Okotoks to Robert Henry Quinton and Agnes Parker McLeod. Quinton spent the 1930s in San Francisco and during the War returned to Okotoks where he farmed. In 1945 he moved to Calgary where he operated Quinton Real Estate and Quinalta Petroleum. He retired in 1963.

In 1922 he married Willa Vivian Elvera Coultry (1903-1972). They had one son, Robert.
