This location is known simply as the "Abandoned Log Mansion". It was built only back in 1989. It's located down a long driveway on Creditview Road in Brampton. The log mansion sits atop a hill and remains unseen unless you're hiking in the area. Despite the photos that depict spacious land, it's actually in the middle of a large rural area.
This beautiful log mansion has three bedrooms upstairs and two in the basement. There are a total of five bathrooms, stone fireplaces and three spiral staircases. Two staircases are on the inside and one is outside.
In the basement is a bar, laundry room, and wine cellar.
The owner of this log mansion was an energy executive.
The kids have already begun to vandalize the property as seen in the photos. They have smashed out every window including the skylights, ripped down railings, smashed mirrors. There's a hole in the floor by the fireplace where someone attempted to light a fire.
The property will eventually be demolished as new subdivisions are encroaching. As with everything nice, this place was destroyed by arson on April 5th, 2020.
aeb00: Here is a beautiful mansion that has been left behind. It is tucked away on a large piece of land in the middle of suburbia and is likely owned by a developer.
It was actually a really special day when RiddimRyder Photography and I originally found this place back in early spring. We were on our way to visit family for his birthday celebration and decided to leave early and take the long way so we could do a bit of exploring on our way. We had a few google scouts in this area that all turned out to be fails... but it led us to drive by the driveway to this place... it was overgrown with a chain across. We decided to investigate further and we were absolutely amazed by what we had discovered!!
This was a huge, and eerie looking building. Some attempts had been made to board windows... but it was pretty wide open. My jaw dropped when we stepped inside to the gorgeous wooden spiral staircase and stone fireplace. The kitchen was absolutely stunning. There were multiple bedrooms and large bathrooms throughout. In the basement, there was an indoor sauna and bar as well. This place also had another spiral staircase indoor that lead up to a loft area and balcony, and another spiral staircase outside connecting the upper and lower patios. This is pretty much my dream house.
Unfortunately, every window had already been broken inside. It was quite obviously a hangout and place for local kids to channel their rage. Although, when we explored this place initially there was no graffiti but every window was broken... even the skylights. We were still lucky to have found it when we did! And what a wonderful birthday surprise for RiddimRyder Photography!
From my understanding, many explorers decided to track down and visit this place shortly after we found it and the place was completely trashed - all the spindles and bannister torn off in the main living area and stairs, the other spiral stairs were completely ripped out of place and unable to be used, and much of the kitchen destroyed.
It really is a shame that kids feel the need to destroy places like this.... Unfortunately, this house was eventually set fire by local kids as well. I think it's still there but not sure what it's condition is after the fire.
It's a shame that this place was left to rot in the first place!
