The place 

A six-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion sitting on 10 acres of serene Caledon countryside. The place comes with three decks, a 1,000-square-foot front terrace, a massive double-sided stone fireplace and a saltwater pool. It’s an hour’s drive from the Blue Mountains and Collingwood’s ski hills, breweries, golf courses and hiking trails.

The history

In 2022, the current owner purchased this property (originally a vinyl-sided bungalow in a field) for just under $1.9 million. They hired HGTV’s Glen Peloso to transform the home into an English-style manor—with contemporary flourishes, of course. Construction was completed in 2023, and now the owner has decided on a lifestyle change.

The tour

The estate couldn’t be greener: mature trees and manicured lawns, all set back from a gated entrance and a 300-foot driveway.

That driveway is 300 feet long.

Residents are first greeted by the great room, with its grand piano, wet bar and walkout to the back deck.

The grand piano room walks out to the back deck.

A 10-foot-wide double-sided stone fireplace anchors the living space.

Next to the great room is the kitchen—equipped with JennAir appliances, tons of cabinets and one dramatic range hood—plus the dining area.

All of the appliances here are JennAir.

Here’s a closer look at the imported German quartz counters and backsplash.

The dining area overlooks the forest through picture frame sliding doors.

Here’s that ensuite, with a soaker tub, a glass shower, a double vanity, heated marble floors and shiplap ceilings.

The floors are heated in the five-piece ensuite bathroom.

The top floor houses three other bedrooms. This is one of them.

And here’s another.

The lower level comes with a den designed for entertaining. Note the built-in sound system as well as the TV and fireplace.

The lower-level den is breezy and loaded with amenities.

The den also walks out to the stone patio and saltwater pool.

Now, a peek at the patio and saltwater pool.

Here’s a wider view of the pool, the great lawn and its distant gazebo.

That's a gazebo in the distance.

Finally, the back of the mansion—a mansard roof, dormer windows and locally sourced stone for the façade.

All of the facade's stone is locally sourced.
