This gorgeous Ontario log mansion is located in Brampton. It’s hidden away from the newer housing community just west of it and the entrance to the property is a long driveway tucked in a nestle of trees.
The log house was built in the 1980’s by Thomas Blake, a Quality Assurance Consultant.
There are three bedrooms on the main floor and two in the basement. There are two interior spiral staircases and one exterior one.
The main fireplace is set into a large stone wall that makes up the majority of the wall and forms an arched doorway. Just beyond the arched doorway is another room with a fireplace. Someone had lit a fire either in the fireplace or on the floor and burned a hole through the floor.
The front doors look as if they belong on a business. Above the doors is a circular stained glass window. In another room is a stained glass window of a unicorn.
The kitchen is modern with a fireplace of its own, the other side of the fireplace opens into the dining room. There’s a large exhaust fan set over the stove and a wall unit oven. The ceiling is made up of wooden beams laid out into rectangular shaped sections.
Vandals have torn the counter off and damaged most every pane of glass.
A view of the front of the home as seen from the driveway (below). This photo was taken at 9 PM when it was almost dark.
A winding staircase leads you into the basement. It was dark by this time so external lighting was used. Here you can see a basement bar (what a shame to see this wooden construction go to waste).
This is a view taken from the top of the staircase on the main floor. There’s no railing here, I felt a sense of danger standing here. As of January 2020 the interior has seen extensive vandalism beyond what’s shown in these photos.
Thanks for reading.
