This strange-looking castle-like house in Toronto could soon be torn down

Toronto is about to be down to just one castle.

No, don’t worry — Casa Loma is still fine. A private, very unique-looking home near the intersection of Victoria Park and St. Clair at 110 Maybourne in Scarborough — known by residents as the “castle house,” according to blogTOis likely set to be demolished.

This architectural m̶a̶s̶t̶e̶r̶p̶i̶e̶c̶e misstep has been a presence in the area for roughly half a century. While at one point it was a small bungalow, in the 1970s its owner Max Heiduczek slowly expanded it with several additions, turning it into a neighbourhood oddity that features turrets, columns and of course, statues.

Then in 2018, Heiduczek sold 3,400 sq. ft. home for $760,000 (a price that seems like a steal now despite its bad condition) before passing away later that year. Fast forward to now, and according to blogTO, the unique home’s new owner plans to tear it down to build a larger single-family home.

One quick glance at the state of the interior of the castle and its easy to understand why its new owners decided its time had ended. The inside of the home is in a serious state of disrepair and in fact, it looks like it was never really finished.

With all of this in mind, no City of Toronto demolition permit has been applied for yet.
