A Fine Gate

It is very often that you see a gate like this guarding the grounds of a home in Toronto but this happens to be one of the old original estates in the Forest Hill neighbourhood and I would imagine that it has always had a gate. The home was built in 1915 and designed by architect Eden Smith who designed a lot of the homes in Wychwood Park and other buildings I have shown before (click the label below). Even on satellite pics you can't really see much of this heritage protected home.

It most certainly is a fine gate, and an amazing greenery around such a classic of design. Yes, I'd like a tour of this grand old place!

Very lovely fence/gate leading towards what I bet is a grand home from what you can see of it.

When I see gates like these I never know if they are there to keep people like me out, or keep the people behind them in. Sounds like they have a long history.

From what I can tell, that home deserves a beautiful gate like that!
