Lakeshore west old old summer residences

Many beautiful old summer residences of Toronto’s elite were pulled down and replaced with apartment buildings mid last century but a few remain still.

Two homes in this short stretch of prime real estate sit empty and one wonder who owns them and what they have planned. One sits fenced in with temporary construction barriers but with nothing happening. The other sits available for what may be called a self-guided tour. It is not renovated but is nevertheless in good shape for its age with original  marquetry inlaid floors, large formal rooms (the dining room clad in floor to ceiling gum wood paneling), a family room with an upright piano and a conservatory of Victorian influence among the many beautiful original details.
