The opulent mansion featured on the hit TV show Schitt’s Creek has hit the market.
The 17th-century, French-inspired mansion in Toronto’s St. Andrews-Windfields neighbourhood known as “La Belle Maison” provided the setting for the Roses’ lavish lifestyle before they ran into financial ruin.
Built in 2012, the elegant European-styled chateau has been listed for sale at CAD$21.888 million according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.
The 24,000-square-foot home sits on half an acre of landscaped grounds and features fourteen bedrooms, sixteen bathrooms, classical sculptures, bronze-and-stone fountains, a saltwater swimming pool and a heated stone driveway with space for fourteen cars.
Nestled behind wrought-iron gates with gold accents and marble pillars, the four-storey estate is designed to impress, blending modern luxury with European artisanship.
The double-arched entryway opens onto a spectacular tribute to the Sistine Chapel, which serves as the residence’s foyer with domed ceilings, stained glass, intricate motifs, a marble staircase and Michelangelo-inspired frescos.
The formal dining room is a showpiece of its own with a Renaissance-style bas-relief, marble floors, and cherubs cavorting across the ceiling frescos.
It seats 24, while the expansive stone patio offers plenty of space for lounging poolside.
A professional chef’s kitchen includes the latest in top-of-the-line appliances and opens onto its own private patio.
The family room features a large aquarium as well as a custom-carved marble fireplace.
An indoor pool, a home theatre with seating for eight, a wine cellar, a billiards room and a four-storey elevator are just a few of the amenities included in the sprawling manor.
Gold, marble, crystal chandeliers and custom artwork feature throughout, with every room unique.
Designer Van Lapoyan spared no expense in creating a timeless masterpiece.
Schitt’s Creek, which was created by and starred father-son writing duo Eugene and Dan Levy was a huge hit.
The series followed the family’s move to small-town USA after falling from grace and their one-time affluent lifestyle.
The series received nine Emmy awards during its run, including Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as two Golden Globes, a SAG award, and numerous Canadian Screen Awards.
