Murdoch Home
Murdoch Home
Type Modern House
Location Lamport Avenue, Toronto
First Appearance Murdoch Mystery Mansion
The Murdoch Home is William Murdoch and Julia Ogden's first house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, in Season 12 of Murdoch Mysteries.

As the owners of Wright's "first-ever house in Toronto", they make the headlines, in an unexpectant fashion, and their home is quickly known as "the crazy new house on Lamport Avenue".

When one visits the Murdoch Home for the first time, they inevitably ask, "Where are the rooms?"

Appearances and Mentions

  • The Murdoch Home becomes the scene of a crime when Murdoch's 'potato cooker' is turned into a murder weapon.
  • Julia and Murdoch become the only people in Toronto with a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Forver Young

Toronto the Bad

  • Their clay pelican statue from Ecuador goes missing which is  blamed (erroneously) on Murdoch's "Roomba" invention, requiring yet another tweak.

Parker in the Rye

  • When Julia wants to use their home as a safe house, William reminds her that there are men out there trying to kill Jacob Quincannon, but Julia believes that he needs to be made to feel safe and secure; Reluctantly, Murdoch agrees and posts armed Constables at their home.
  • William is proven correct in his assessment of the danger, but Parker gives him a very clever heads up, "Tell Detective Murdoch...I'll see him at the Wright House later," to foil the assassins.

Kill Thy Neighbour

  • Goldie and Raymond Huckabee put in a second water line and at the same time, the Murdoch Home's pipes burst. William is convinced that doesn't just happen and suspects the Huckabee's did it on purpose.
  • In the meantime, William and Julia are back at the Windsor House Hotel. Awoken there by the Inspector, George and Watts, they learn that Raymond Huckabee has been murdered.
  • Murdoch's lawnmower is tested for blood to confirm it as part of a diabolical murder weapon.
