The incredibly opulent mansion that featured in the hit show Schitt's Creek has gone on the market for $21 million (CND).

The property, called La Belle Maison, was home to Johnny and Moira Rose and their 'bébés', David and Alexis Rose; and its decadence and size firmly places it among the some of the world's best homes.

The Emmy Award-winning show features a married couple who suddenly go bankrupt and the only remaining asset they have is a rundown town named Schitt's Creek, which they initially bought as a joke. The rest, as they say, is history...

The 17th-century, French-inspired mansion in Toronto’s St. Andrews-Windfields neighborhood famously provided the setting for the Roses’ lavish lifestyle before their financial ruin.

Built in 2012, the 14-bedroom, 16-bath property boasts 24,000-square-foot of space and sits on half an acre of landscaped grounds that include gardens, classical sculptures, bronze-and-stone fountains, a saltwater swimming pool and a heated stone driveway with space for 14 cars.

If it's plush entryway ideas you're looking for, it doesn't get much more extravagant than this. 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.
