Casa Loma Real Estate
Mi Casa, Su Casa
Spanish for Hill House, Casa Loma was a house built for financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt in 1914, but is now a museum and landmark, offering kid-friendly programs and tours of the grounds and stables, throughout the year. Aside from budding photographers taking in the stunning architecture, the Baldwin steps are a staircase of 110 steps often frequented by joggers.

For traditional French dishes, white tablecloths and authentic accents, Le Paradis is a neighbourhood institution. For casual setting and down-home food, Rose and Sons offers a tasty, jovial affair and Big Crow from the same owners benefits from a huge patio when the season’s right, but the barbeque is succulent and flavourful year round.
