Elegant Gate

The gate itself is gone but this entranceway looks so elegant especially since it is right across the road from Casa Loma. The drive leads up to a large estate which as far as I can find out is now a convent. I'd love to tour the grounds but it is not open to the public.
Taking part in Good Fences. Click HERE to see more fences from around the world.
Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!

Neat stone pillars and a quaint little gate. I bet the grounds are lovely.

I love the stone work!

I am a big fan of stone structures of all kinds. Maybe you could write them a letter to ask if you could hold a "convent-ion" there? That would get you inside! :)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you also, Pat.

The fence and the building pictured are both very beautiful.
I see that the Toronto winter is still around...

Have a Happy Day!
Peace :)

Looks like it must have been quite a place. Would be interested in knowing more about the history of it.
