You Can Now Buy Casa Loma

The castle is up for grabs!
You Can Now Buy Casa Loma

Toronto's gothic landmark is in the market for a new owner. If you've ever wanted to live out your Princess dream, NOW IS THE TIME! Tell bae to step it up and buy you your very own frigging castle. The now museum, that was originally constructed in the early 1900s, has been a huge attraction for tourists in the city. Built originally as a residence for Financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, Casa Loma has flourished over the years.

From it's Great Hall to a wicked library, there is sure to be a bidding war over this castle. In 1903, Pellatt purchased 25 lots from developers and commissioned architect E.J. Lennox to design the castle. The house cost about $3.5 million and took almost three years to build with about 300 workers. At one point, Casa Loma, was one of the largest private residences in Canada.
