At first glance, you might think this massive country estate is located somewhere in France when in reality, it’s housed on the picturesque shore of Lake Ontario just outside of Toronto.
Tucked away from the hustle of the city in Oakville is Chester Hall, a sprawling 43,850 sq. ft. country mansion set on 10 acres of pristine lawns and immaculate gardens.
Complete with wine cellars (yes, multiple), a tennis court, indoor and outdoor pools, and a private wedding chapel, this lavish pad could be yours for a casual $59 million dollars.
Last week, we teased you with another $50 million mega-mansion outside of Toronto, and while it oozed luxury and was reminded us of Versailles, it’s just not quite on the same lavish level as Chester Hall.

When you arrive at the estate, you’ll see a gatehouse, similar to what you might find at a luxury resort.
As you drive through the double-entry gates and head down the long drive toward the main house, you’ll be surrounded by thousands of trees and lush greenery, giving Chester Hall ultimate privacy from the outside world.
And while the exterior of the home might feel a bit cold, once you step inside the gracious manner, you’ll be welcomed by a warm and inviting space that’s the perfect setting for a family.
Every detail from the flooring, mouldings, and furnishings give the elegant estate a homey feel, while the countless chandeliers, custom cabinetry, and grand fireplaces add a touch of luxury.
On the ground level, you’ll find everything you need for hosting and entertaining family and friends, including a billiards room with a spectacular bar, a two-storey library and private den, and an inviting yet astounding kitchen, perfect for whipping up a big brunch for guests.
Upstairs, you’ll find five well-appointed bedrooms, each offering ample closet space and private ensuite bathrooms.
But the real fun begins in the basement, where there’s a dance floor, an impressive bowling alley, a movie theatre, and pub-style wet bar.
If this wasn’t enough to entice you into taking out your cheque book, there are two Tuscan-inspired wine cellars, an indoor and outdoor pool, a fitness centre, and a guest suite.
Furthermore, there’s a hot tub and sauna, a sprawling tennis court, an onsite chapel, and hidden underground parking for 12 vehicles with direct access into the residence.
If you’ve made it this far, you’re obviously dying to see what this place actually looks like. So without further ado, here’s a look at Chester Hall.
