Magnificent Private Estate on Mimico Creek- Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

El CapistranoMarch 8, 2015- One of the largest privately owned estates in Toronto, the landscaping plan of El Capistrano was designed in the 1940s by Dunnington-Grubb, the founders of Sheridan Nurseries. There is a stone sidesplit residence with Art Deco details and terra cotta roof, a groundskeeper’s cottage, a pool house, and a stone kennel building. Minutes from downtown Toronto and both airports, yet feels like a storybook world away from everything at El Capistrano, the backdrop for numerous films. Estate home or possible redevelopment opportunity. See the virtual tour at– Andrea Stark, Sales Representative, Royal LePage/ Johnston & Daniel Division, Brokerage
