Biggest House in Canada
The biggest house in Canada was formerly owned by multi-millionaire
Peter Grant. An indoor swimming pool, lake in the background,
exquisite fireplaces and full windows are some of the attractive
features of the biggest house in Canada.
The home is currently on an auction for $25 million and is spread
over 65,000 square feet of land.
One of the unique features of the biggest house in Canada is
that it is located in Haileybury, Ontario, within proximity of
140 kilometers from the North Bay. So those who love to live in
a cool and calm atmosphere which is free from any kind of hustle
and bustle usually found in cities will prefer this house whereas
others who work in cities like Toronto and Vancouver will be least
interested in the house.
Located beside Lake Temiskaming the house has an excellent view
and has an indoor yard wherein a 40 foot long yacht could be stored.
To go along with it indoor elevators also enhance the beauty of
the house. The bathrooms are very well designed and have a big
tub where one can have lots of fun while having a shower.
The biggest house in Canada has wide fireplaces in almost every
room. A swimming pool and a gym area are also incorporated within
the house. This house previously belonged to Peter Grant of the
Grant Forests Inc., as previously mentioned, but due to financial
crisis he had to auction the house.
This was his dream house where he wanted to stay his family and
establish a corporate office but sadly when the biggest house
in Canada was ready for move-in he was bankrupt and therefore
had to put his house up for sale. Talking of Grant Incorporated,
it was once the third largest producer of strand board in North
America and Mr. Grant was considered as one of the wealthier individuals
of North America.
In recent times, due to recession in the US markets, his company
underperformed and came into debt. In order to compensate for
the debt the court ordered to auction all of the properties and
assets that belonged to this company. The biggest house in Canada
is being auctioned for $25 million however being near the lake
and with no city nearby the house it's going to be difficult for
the sellers to dispose of it.
As far as the house is concerned it is a new and magnificent
property, and it isn't furnished yet but one can use furnishing
of their choice after buying the house. One thing is for sure
is that this requires a special buyer with special needs because
people usually do not like to mix their personal life with corporate
The biggest house in Canada is about the same size as Bill Gate's
home in Seattle, Washington in the U. S. Its design is however,
how shall we say, a bit on the modernistic side.
