Location # 6409

A 32,000 square-foot mansion set on 5.7 acres of prime Lakeshore property. It was listed at $45,000,000 and sold for $35,000,000. Built by Mattamy Homes president Peter Gilgan in 1994. The original home that was on the property for over 80 years was torn down in 1992. The property still includes the original boathouse and greenhouses. The property included a massive Georgian-style mansion, boathouse, four-car garage, pool, private pebble beach, its own baseball diamond and 300 metres of shoreline. The 32,000-square-foot house contained 17 bathrooms, 20-seat-theatre and spa. Demolition is taking place to make way for 30 condominiums, priced from $2.7 million to $6.9 million and ranging in size from about 2,700 to 5,500 square feet. Several heritage artifacts on the property, including a gardener's cottage, stable, teahouse, greenhouse and boathouse will be restored and preserved.

They were using the gate right in front on Lakeshore. Fortunately, they left it wide open so I was able to wander in and walk around the grounds without anyone noticing. Didn't bother trying to get in though, looked like they we
