The overwhelming country estate is owned by retired beer company executive Hugo Powell. So, in a way, you can say that Canadians have greatly helped to fund its initial purchase.

Of note, there is also an 800-square-foot chapel on the grounds and the mega-mansion was designed with a full attic so more bedrooms could be added — you know, in case you run out of room. (What’s 50,000 square feet, anyway, right?)

Price: $59 million
Square footage: 43,850 square feet
Bedrooms: 6
Bathrooms: 13
Parking spaces: Only 30

The grand foyer opens to the second floor and a 39-foot ceiling. We’re sure the Queen will make her entrance any moment now.

We would have purchased this home. We came so close … But it has a two-storey library. Dealbreaker. We wanted a three-storey library.

Is this the great room? Impossible. This is the magnificent room. What else could it possibly be?

The six-piece master ensuite has gold accessories and a soaker tub that overlooks the garden. It can also house about 10 Toronto condo units within its parametres.

We can only assume you immediately start to speak with a British accent when you enter this billiards room.

Some may call this a backyard. Some may call this its own city. The grounds of the home extend quite appropriately onto Lake Ontario. Appropriately, because only a massive lake is big enough to border this “lawn.”
