The iconic French Château once owned by Canadian financier and real estate developer Robert Campeau was listed for sale at $25 million. The sprawling, four-plus acre property, located in the city’s prestigious Bridle Path area will be sold turnkey, including French elements quintessential to the property such as antique furnishings, gilt bronze and crystal chandeliers and wall sconces, and various works of art.
“The outcome is an authentic French Chateau that truly transports prospective purchasers to another time and place,” says luxury realtor Barry Cohen. “From the gently sloping cobblestone driveway to the gradual unveiling of the imposing structure, the meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout. The estate itself rivals any French Chateau found in the Loire Valley and its only 20 minutes from Toronto’s downtown core.”
The property, featuring 10 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, and an Olympic-size swimming pool with a retractable floor that converts into a ballroom, is rich with history. It was blessed by Cardinal Carter – notable guests include former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau and actress Jane Fonda. Numerous films have been shot at the home, including It Takes Two and Kissinger. Just last year, the home appeared in an episode of ‘Suits.’
