We’ve posted about this magnificent home before, but have decided to refresh your minds. This stately mega mansion, dubbed Chelster Hall, is located at 1150 Lakeshore Road East in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. It is one of the largest private residences in Canada and was built by Chatsworth Project & Construction Management. It is owned by Hugo Powell, the retired CEO of the Belgian brewing comapny Interbrew. The mansion sits on 10 acres on the shores of Lake Ontario with grounds that boast a swimming pool, tennis court, chapel, gatehouse and a boathouse. Mr. Powell had originally planned for the home to be a whopping 55,000 square feet (making it the same size as the White House), but opposition from his neighbors forced him to scale it down, but not by much. After completion in 2006, the home boasted 47,000 square feet of living space. He said it was meant to look old when it was built and it was meant to look the same in 100 years. Well they certainly achieved that look!
