Whether we admit it or not, we love looking into everyone else's beautiful homes. So, here for your viewing pleasure is a list of some of Canada’s most spectacular mansions from Coast to Coast!
1. The highest priced mansion on the list is in Vancouver’s own Point Grey neighbourhood. This 25,000 sq.-ft. property is so beautiful, we almost understand the price tag. On three lots with a movie theatre, tennis courts, and a 10 car garage, it sold for more than $51 million in December 2014.
2. We’d brave the Calgary cold for Kettle Lake Ranch, which went on the market for $38 million in February of 2014. The house itself is a modest 5,000 square feet with a beautiful rustic-chic appeal. The real value is the 240 acres of land on which it sits and includes two private lakes and a number of creeks. The property was once owned by the Ford Motor Family, and only adds to its historic charm.
3 Saskatchewan may not be the first place that comes to mind when imagining where one might find the most expensive homes in Canada, but this incredible 35,000 square foot home is most notable for its movie theatre and grand architecture. Owner Jeffrey Smith, CEO of First Impressions Theme Theatres, Inc., had it designed in the most opulent style available; reminiscent of grand Opera Houses and Ballrooms from colonial era Europe.
4. Compared to its fellow mansions in Vancouver and Toronto markets, a Manitoba listing this year went for a mere $11 million dollars. The 27,000 square foot estate is comprised of 28 rooms and promises impressive luxury (just look at that indoor pool) in modern minimalism.
5. Listed at $25 million dollars, 68 The Bridle Path is simply palatial. Not every home purchase also affords you a golf cart included in the price to transport owners and guests around the vast property. Along with a forty car garage, this classic mansion reminiscent of its European forebearers is impressive to say the least. The gardens alone make us feel like we’re in high society.
6. It is no great surprise that Quebec would not only have dozens of magnificent mansions, but castles indulgent of its French heritage. Sitting on 12.36 acres of waterfront property just outside Montreal and listed at $11.4 million, this exquisite 20,000 square foot mansion lives up to exactly what one would expect from one of Canada’s oldest cities.
