The 11,000 square foot mansion ranks amongst the finest representations of great estate homes. It was the last of its kind and quality designed and built in Burlington in the first decades of the twentieth century.
A heritage property of significance, it has been rightly called the “Jewel in the Crown” of Burlington’s waterfront. It includes a gatehouse, a children’s dollhouse and one of the last remaining stables in urban Burlington.
Shoreacres Creek flows through the east side of the property and you can take a stroll along the Discovery Trail and see the natural beauty of the area. It’s one of the last remaining natural areas in Halton along Lake Ontario’s shoreline.
The trail will lead you to many interesting interpretative signs, where you can learn about the birds, mammals, fish, trees and fauna that live in this rich environment. Several regionally rare plant species are found here.
The property provides nesting and a stop-over habitat for an extremely high diversity of bird species. In the spring, the area is a birder’s dream. The area is also a perfect spot for painting and photographing wildlife and natural landscapes.
