A Fieldstone Gem

This wonderful Georgian style home is now known as McLean House and is owned by the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre and is rented out as an event venue with the funds going towards research at the hospital. It was originally built in 1928 and was called Bay View as it sat atop rolling hills on 50 acres of land looking down towards Lake Ontario. Tomorrow I will show you its coach house.

I want it. But I probably can't afford it. Very fine photograph with all those symmetrical vertical lines. Or something like that! :)

Wonderful. Someday I plan to check out some of these wonderful places you have been posting! I think I need to wait for warmer weather, though. ;)

What a beautiful home. Am so glad it has ben preserved and its use today is going to fund the hospital. Anxious to see the Coach House.
