The Casa Loma neighbourhood is south of St. Clair Avenue West, west of Spadina Road, north of Dupont Street, and west of Bathurst Street.
When the word “castle” comes to mind, you would probably think of medieval Europe long before Toronto. However, Toronto is indeed home to a castle, the one that gives the Casa Loma neighbourhood its name.
This area has long been an enclave for Toronto’s wealthiest residents. It wasn’t until 1903 that financier Sir Henry Pellatt really put the neighbourhood on the map. That was the year he began constructing Casa Loma, Spanish for “House on the Hill.”
The project was ambitious and expensive. It took a team of 300 men working for three years to construct the mansion of 98 rooms. Sadly, Pellatt’s fortunes changed, and not only did the third floor remain unfinished, he had to abandon the home in 1923. Luckily for the city, the Kiwanis Club took over operations and maintenance so residents could enjoy tours of the home and its grounds.
Although Pellatt didn’t live in Casa Loma for very long, his home inspired other residents to build luxury homes in the neighbourhood. Visitors to the area can still see these beautiful properties today.
