Richard's Notes and Land Use Suggestions
Caledon my first love in
Ontario – since the Fall of 1978. The
Millcroft Inn (now a Spa) was where I had my most romantic escapades.
High Tea in the Terra Cotta Inn
has now metamorphosed into fine Italian cuisine.
When I am in the mood for the “country”, depending on my ambition, I can either take a stroll on the gentle rolling hills at the Forks of Credit Provincial Park embark on a more vigorous hike along the river and escarpment paths, or even push a little further, to hike on the Mono Cliffs. The Cliffs command a spectacular almost 360 degree view of the region. Afterwards, I would enjoy a brew and chicken wings, or buttered garlic shrimp, at the Mono Cliffs Inn - owned and run by an Australian expatriate. On my way back, I would replenish my supply of the most incredible "homemade" jam at Flap Jacks on HWY 10.
The region draws the international set to work, live and visit along with the incredibly wealthy (I enjoyed my visit - on a professional basis, to an $18 million estate in the area), and the incredibly artistic such as Lyn Westfall.
In my mind, KnightsBridge is a microcosm of the region - gently rolling landscape, mature trees, lakes, trails .... and so on. The five houses have the best vantage points to take in the view on the whole 249+ acreage. The Main House is architect designed, whereas the Groundskeeper's House is a Viceroy Home. The original home is a Stone House - which has been updated and used as a Guest House for the Knight family.
Ideally, the use would be to continue as a family compound - or a corporate retreat. It is rare to have such a large piece of property (249+ acres) available in the area. With the recent changes in the Condominium Act, this could also be a rare opportunity for an Estate Condominium development - elaborating on one or more of the existing five houses for million plus homes or razing one or more to build new ones on their footprints. Please contact me for suggestions in this regard.
