Which Versailles Knock-Off Wins The Gold-Plated Title?

New, 2 comments

Imagine you have two exclusive properties, one in Vaughan and another in the Bridle Path, both claiming to resemble a "Palace of Versailles." Which listing is the real Versailles knock-off? Can either listing even own the title? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical gold-plated cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

We've heard endlessly about the Versailles of Vaughan property asking $17.8 million. The owners from Vaughan, Ontario built the house for their wedding kiss and the massive home features a heated ferrari room. The Bridle Path mansion didn't sell for the listing price of $23 million and now the house goes on auction on November 26. The owners couldn't afford to finish renovations and the Versailles-inspired property is now owned by the bank. Versailles of Vaughan is in close proximity to Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre and Canada's Wonderland while the Versailles de Bridle Path sits in a very exclusive enclave of homes and is close to downtown.
