Canada's largest home hits the market
You won't find it on Post Road or the Bridle Path. To see it, you'll need to go to Haileybury, about 140 kilometres north of North Bay.
It's a fixer-upper but, if you want a home to grow into, it might just be what you are looking for — provided you don't mind the thought of dusting 65,000 square feet or its $25-million price tag. It's as big as the White House, which is about 55,000 sq. ft., and 24 Sussex Drive, home to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, which is approximately 11,000 sq. ft., put together.
The building includes a boat house big enough for a 40-foot yacht, two elevators, an indoor pool, a giant hot tub and 30-foot fireplaces in the master bedroom and living room.
There's an exercise room the size of a small gym. Plumbing has also been installed on the grounds for a few golf holes.
But buyer beware: The house is far from finished. There's no flooring, no finished bathrooms and few wall coverings.
