Big beauty of a house, right on the lakeshore. Many floors, a piano in the living room and a little glass atrium on the side. My abandoned dreamhome :)


**Added by Superss**

I hope you don't mind me adding this information. I grew up in this area, not on the lake like this house, but it was my stomping ground.

The city that this location should be listed under is Toronto, more specifically the area or "town" which the locals call it, is Mimico, which is inside the boundaries of Toronto.

This is the old John McBride house, which was built in 1927. There are a number of beautiful homes along this stretch of Mimico on the Lakeshore. Many were built in the late 1800's & early 1900's by some prominent names, Eaton, McGuinness, & Loblaw. The Polish Consulate is the old McGuiness estate.

I don't think any of these homes have been historically designated yet, there is a portion of an estate, a gardeners cottage, that is on its way to being designated with the Ontario Heritage Act. Sadly, the house in question here, already has an approved demolition permit. Too many condo's in the old Motel Strip area, hopefully not next to these old lakefront estates.

That's too bad, they gave me a false hope with the renovation sign in front.

I just changed it's location from Mississauga to Toronto. It's in Mimico, which is a part of Toronto. I also changed it to active as it appears as though they are renovating it. It's got fencing around the property with a renovation company sign on it. I would way rather see that then a demolition.

I pass this place all the time, would love to take a look but I think im probably too late, im sure its either locked up or visited frequently. For sale sign still but, would looooove to own this beauty.

RE: I'm quite certain someone slipped into a closet upstairs while I was there

You throwing open the door with the camera's timer set on a tripod would have been the photo of the year!!!!!!!
