Small Castle?

Although many of you know that my tastes run towards modern architecture such as the house I posted earlier this week, I love this place which is just around the corner from it. Built in 1926 and designed by architect Douglas E Kertland (who designed the very Art Deco Automotive Building at Exhibition Place), the design and landscaping really works - good design wins no matter what style. It has a large lot (with pool) that backs onto 2 leafy ravine parks and can be yours for $4.4M. And I love that turret!

Absolutely, good design always wins out - and this is definitely a good one!

I like this house too, very much but 4.4 mil, I couldn't handle. Why is it that torrent always attach the eyes.

This reminds me of many of the large houses you see in Scotland where there is often a turret incorporated in the design. Lovely looking place.

I would move in here in a heartbeat.

Love the turret, but really, really love the stone.

Somewhere in Europe, I would say.

I like it a lot! Now if only I could come up with the price.

This is more my taste. Love turrets.

Amazing, but not for my pocket... :(

I think houses with turrets are a little pretentious. But I can't deny this one is pretty! :)

This is definitely the most 'romantic' so far Pat, I'm with Joe if I had a spare 4.4M t'would be mine!!!

A tad too pricy for my budget. Otherwise, I'd be happy to move in.

Yes, very nice, although quite pricey...
