So this week’s real estate crush theme could be ‘So you’ve always wanted to live in a mansion/castle’.

Just look:


When I was a little girl, I dreamed endlessly about living in 2 houses in Toronto.

First was the Ashbridge Estate, in Leslieville. My Grandfather and I used to walk by on our way to to bet on horses together at our forever missed Greenwood racetrack. (At eight, I was really good at picking winning ponies.)

The second was actually less of a house and more of a castle. Castle Loma, of course, just north of the Annex. I would wander that place for hours, pretending that it all belonged to me.

So even though I can’t afford this week’s crush (can you?), a girl can dream. Come along for the ride! Let’s count our (pretend) riches together:

  • over 6,300 sqft of living space
  • the neighbourhood
  • it’s a 1928 Georgian Classic ( OMG HOW I LOVE OLD HOUSES)
  • located on an elevated hill-top surrounded by stone walls (killed me dead)
  • it has private gates with a circular driveway
  • it overlooks a ravine
  • and of course it has a huge garden
  • 5 bedroom & 5 baths (room for EVERYONE!)

The end.
