If you're tired of hearing about the Versailles of Vaughan mansion, the elaborate $17.8M chateaux in Vaughan, Ontario, the story seems here to stay. Since Curbed Toronto first featured the listing and the Toronto Star wrote about the husband and wife owners who built the house for their wedding kiss, the story has gained international attention. This could be the first time that Vaughan, Ontario, population 300,000 and home to Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre and Canada's Wonderland, has been featured so prominently in the news.
Listed back in May, the 24,000 square foot property on 90 Rocmary Place sat quietly on the real estate market, until recently when the ornate palace with a heated Ferrari room, caught the attention of international media with its bizarre background story. In the last week, the mansion was featured in the Daily Mail UK, KOIN in Portland, and CNN tweeted the link. The real estate agent for the property is having fun with all the attention. She recently did a photo shoot inside the Ferrari room.
