Property Description

The acquisition of Chelster Hall is about capital preservation, privacy, and security in one of Canada’s most exclusive cities. A magnificent 43,850 square foot English country mansion set on 10 acres of lawns and gardens, directly on Lake Ontario waterfront and within reach of Toronto’s financial district and the international airport. An irreplaceable trophy property of the highest order for both formal business entertaining & extraordinary family gatherings. Wine cellars, tennis, indoor and outdoor pools.
Ability to land a helicopter on the grounds. Private chapel for family weddings. Completely independent housekeeper’s residence. Gate house security with office. 12 car underground parking facility to house your automotive collection.

Completed in 2006, following five years of careful contemplation, planning and construction, the estate is evocative of the great country castles of England. Built to look 100 years old, Chelster Hall will never age. Classic, timeless, and balanced architecture. Voluminous space. Old world craftsmanship by predominantly local artisans.

Drive through the double controlled front entry gates and pass the sentry gate house, heading towards the main residence. A sense of calm, space, privacy, happiness, and security prevails. Four seasons gardens and thousands of trees and shrubs.

Entering the gracious front Mahogany paneled entry doors, you will immediately be impressed. In the grand foyer, look up at the elliptical shaped dome soaring high above. In the distance, the floating staircase in an engineering masterpiece. Designed not to obstruct the views of the lake and gardens, its steel construction (clad in wood) will stand forever. On the note of engineering marvels, Chelster Hall has been constructed with ICF (insulated concrete forming) right up to the roof level. Quality that will stand the test of time. Natural slate roofing. Copper downpipes. No detail has been left to chance.

Sublime and exquisitely proportioned principal rooms. Quarter sawn White Oak flooring. Plaster moulding. Custom cabinetry. European influenced elegant precast fireplace mantels.

The residence is astounding… and at the same time very inviting. The sophistication of the 2-storey library and private study; yet with the warmth and comfort of the billiard and family rooms for everyday family living. Upstairs, five well-appointed bedrooms, each offer ample closet space and private ensuite bathrooms.

Made for grand parties and entertaining. More muted fun in the main floor billiards room leads guest to the lower level where cheering, festivity, and banter happen. Kick up your heels on the dance floor. Incredible bowling lane with its sitting area. Watch the latest Hollywood release in the comfy leather chairs of the home cinema. Enjoy a single malt scotch and watch a sports game on the TV screens of the pub-influenced wet bar.

The home has two Tuscan influenced wine cellars. Immediate access for entertaining is through the smaller wine cellar on the main floor. Hold wine and cheese events in the cave of the lower cellar – straight out of the pages of a vineyard.

The attached independent suite has been artfully joined to the main residence and is ideally suited for staff, in-laws, extended / multi-generational families or overseas guests.

Fitness is the name of the game at Chelster Hall. Swim laps in either of the indoor or outdoor pools. Superb home gym, hot tub and sauna. Wimbledon II can be played in the tennis courts at the West end of the property. The back lawns are so vast that a game of European football is completely conceivable.

Escape to the onsite chapel for quiet contemplation, reflection, or meditation. Reminiscent of the great country estates of Britain.

Car buffs rejoice! Brilliantly hidden underground parking facility for 12 cars. It offers direct access to the residence.

Chelster Hall is a world class residence to celebrate the very best that life has to offer.
