This unfinished 65,000 square foot super mansion (more interior space than an NFL football field!!!) has just hit the market. It is considered to be the largest single family residence in Canada. Until now, the largest home sold in Canada was a 48,000-sq.-ft. house in Oakville, Ont., which went for $45-million in 2006. The super mansion is listed at only $25,000,000, but that’s because there’s no flooring, no finished bathrooms and few wall coverings. It is located on Farr Drive in Haileybury, Ontario on the shores of Lake Temiskaming. The home, which sits on 40 acres of land, boasts an indoor boat house big enough for a 40-foot yacht, two elevators, an indoor pool, a giant hot tub, 30-foot fireplaces in the master bedroom and living room, and an exercise room the size of a small gym. The property was once the dream project of Peter Grant, a forest products titan from nearby Englehart. He planned to use the building as a residence and corporate office for his family-owned business, Grant Forest Products Inc. The home is way too industrial looking for my taste. Also, the home does not look like it’s 65,000 square feet from the exterior, so I’m interested in seeing how all of that space is distributed. Is this home your style? Would you buy it and finish it up?

    I love it as an office and I hate it as a home.
    The last thing I would want is my office and my home together.

    Yuck! That house (if you can call it that) is absolutely hideous and looks like some kind of pressure chamber or gas regulating station! I am disgusted! Especially after looking at that Thai estate, which I found very beautiful and cool. And now this? My eyes!

    What’s it made of? Cork and aluminum cans?

    Why on earth would you want to live at your office? Takin the “Work to live/live to work thing a little far”…

    Personally I think it’s gorgeous – something ‘different’, thoroughly modern but not completely minimalist or distasteful. I hate to compare it to something as elegant and sophisticated as the Gugenheim, but with the curved reflective surfaces, that’s almost how it looks. And as far as the location, well, I grew up there and it is stunning.

    Looks too industrial, not appropriate for a private residence…

    I like this “house,” but modern and contemporary architecture shouldn’t be used for mega-mansions. Many of them look like commercial buildings or laboratories when complete, and they may look extremely tacky also.

    It may have an industrial feel, but it is a work of art. Would I live in it? Probably not, as it looks as cold, dark, and hopeless as an old factory or tenement. The grey and brown are really depressing.

    I agree with Aaron , I grew up in the area … The view on the lake (which we don`t see ) is worth millions alone and to have 40 acres … If I win Lotto Max on Friday ($50 M ) I will put an offer in .
