Real Estate


House of the Week: $3.5 million for a country manor on 37 acres

ADDRESS: 14,650 7th Concession


AGENT: Carolyn Scime, Chestnut Park Realty, Brokerage and Diana Dunlap, Laceby Real Estate.

PRICE: $3,500,000

THE PLACE: The stone-and-stucco façade, soaring great hall, and thickly forested lot suggests a baronial manor from the Middle Ages, but the giant walk-in closets, fully loaded kitchen and enormous master bath (complete with copper tub) makes this the opposite of medieval living.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: A staggering 37-acre property with digs designed by architect Stephen Mccasey (a favourite of Frank Stronach).

BIG SELLING POINT: The great hall is a perfect spot to imagine your life as Henry VIII. The space has a two-storey beamed cathedral ceiling, wood burning fireplace and wrought iron detailing throughout.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This place is only a 45-minute drive from Toronto, but if your idea of a good night is less about cocoa and more about cosmos around a bar table, this home may not be for you.

    wow… 49 pics… wonder why TL feel this house warrants this many pics… then again, TL is so screwed up they rarely have any rationale for anything they do.

    love the house but too isolated for me

  • Mike

    The place is great, but why do the bathrooms look like they came from a house in Scarborough?

  • Karen

    Pee – If that is what you think than why are you reading TL??

    Gorgeous house. Could use some upgrading though, as some decor is old fashioned. I’d live there in a heart beat.

    I agree with Karen: Makes no sense to “waste” your time -by choice!- on something you hate so much. How peculiar!

    The house and the lot are gorgeous, but the interior is definitely lacking. They took the whole “cottage” feel a little too far for my taste.
