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.
Nestled behind wrought-iron gates with gold accents and marble pillars, the four-story estate is dressed to impress, blending modern luxury with European artisanship.
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.
And the opulence continues throughout the vast home. Designer Van Lapoyan employed gold, marble, crystal chandeliers and custom artwork throughout to create a showstopping finish.
Restrooms are enhanced with fine art, chandeliers and marble sinks, perfect for gaining inspiration for marble bathroom ideas.
The Renaissance-style formal dining room is a showpiece of its own with marble floors, and cherubs enhancing the ceiling frescos.
A professional chef’s kitchen is equally as elegant with ceiling frescos and chandeliers adding refined drama.
The home also boasts a custom-designed banquet hall with patterned marble-and-granite floors, a bold blue-and-gold theme, and a mirror-walled dance floor and space for up to 150 guests.
What's more, there's also an indoor and outdoor pool, a home theatre with seating for eight, a wine cellar, a billiards room and a four-story elevator
