With over 28,000 square feet of interior space to explore, this opulent mansion ranks near the top of the list of largest homes in Canada. When it hit the market in early 2014 for $17.8 million it was the most expensive house that had ever been listed in Vaughn and one of the most expensive in all of Canada. Today, the gilded manor has dropped in price and can be purchased for $14.888 million. The home belongs to a European-Canadian entrepreneur who had fallen in love with France’s Palace of Versailles during regular visits over the past eight years and wanted to bring some of that splendor home.
It features has six-bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, an extended driveway that fits 30 cars and a foyer big enough to fit a shopping mall inside. There’s even a Ferrari room. The interiors are filled with exotic marbles, numerous imported crystal chandeliers and hand-painted sculpted ceilings. There is an indoor swimming pool fit for a king and a sprawling piazza with an ornate front gate.
“It’s not for everybody, we do understand that,” the homeowner said. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to find a buyer and at what kind of discount.
